SONEMA is an international Telecom Service Provider and Integrator, positioning itself as a One-Stop-Shop for Connectivity, Cloud, Hosting and security services. Since 1998, SONEMA deploys and operates highly robust and scalable telecommunication networks in the most remote areas of Africa.

At the end of 2022, Sonema was acquired by the German MBS group. MBS is a quality provider of critical communication services and their infrastructure. As an owner-managed, internationally operating company, they employ more than 160 employees in Germany, France and Poland. MBS operates data and voice communications via satellite and data networks - worldwide and in space.

This acquisition by MBS strengthens Sonema's position as a leading player for secure and business critical communication services, particularly on the African continent. It also enables Sonema, through the synergies between the two groups, to accelerate its innovation, develop new areas of expertise and roll out new offerings and solutions that are increasingly tailored to its customers' needs.

Sonema’s experts supervise and configure multiple WAN/LAN architectures, from simple Internet connectivity to complex hybrid networks mixing terrestrial, LEO, MEO or GEO satellite transmissions with intelligent SD-WAN routing.

Well known for its premium support, Sonema’s Network Operating Center multilingual staff is supervising and maintained customer networks on a 24x7 basis, providing integrated network visibility, troubleshooting, and reporting for global customers. In parallel, Sonema relies on partners for the local installation of equipment, whether in Africa, Asia, Europe or South America.
