Sudatel Telecom Group brings Sudanese start-ups to 2019 MWC Barcelona

Sudatel Telecom Group had a successful participation last week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona for the third consecutive year which took place 25-28 February 2019.

MWC Barcelona is the largest mobile event in the world, bringing together 107,000 decision-makers who will be discussing the latest innovations and leading-edge technology.

As well as demonstrating its own capabilities and discussing its plans for 2019, Sudatel brought to the show three companies chosen from its Spark Initiative, a program that is supporting innovative ICT-focused Sudanese start-ups.

The three companies are all innovative enterprise software-focused companies delivering services that solve specific problems faced by businesses in Sudan. They have scalable business models with the potential to expand outside Sudan.

Participating at MWC provides all three companies – as well as Sudatel - with a platform to demonstrate their capabilities, achievements and corporate strategic direction to potential partners, suppliers and customers around the globe.

The companies were chosen by a committee of experienced business people in Sudan after the opportunity was publicized across Sudan. The three start-up companies are:

  • Yazan Solutions, a GIS & IT solutions company that believes that digitalization is the present and future of business. Its mission is to be among the leaders of the GEO Solutions in the MENA region and its target customers are in the FMCG, Banking, Telecom, Courier and E-commerce industries;
  • Xerus Instruments, provides a mobile app that enables Mobile Network Operators to test voice quality and video streaming, both indoors and outdoors, to improve the quality of experience for their customers without the need for highly paid field engineers and sophisticated test equipment;
  •, URL: provides a website and mobile app that enable quality construction materials and maintenance from a variety of vendors to be sourced, bought and shipped at very competitive prices

Tarig Hamza Zain El Abdein, CEO of Sudatel Telecom Group, said “We are looking forward to Magla, Yazan and Xerus joining us at the prestigious MWC show. They are all promising companies that have spotted gaps in the market – both within and outside Sudan.
