Ooredoo, an enabler of digital business innovation, has announced a partnership with Es’hailSat to deliver next-generation Inmarsat L-band satellite voice and data services that will enhance business communications across Qatar and worldwide.

Ooredoo will offer cutting-edge satellite services for customers in Qatar, including pre-paid and post-paid global satellite voice services and satellite broadband plans. Business customers can also turn their smartphones into satellite phones and easily communicate worldwide.

Yousuf Abdulla Al Kubaisi, COO, Ooredoo, said: “Ooredoo is seeing a strong demand for satellite services for mega projects, specialised industries and mission critical situations. Thanks to our partnership with Es’hailSat, Ooredoo continues to be Qatar’s leading provider of satellite services, with tailored plans that let businesses have robust voice and internet when and where they need it anywhere around the world.”

In particular, Ooredoo is targeting business customers in key industry verticals such as government and public sector for diplomats and international relief agencies, oil and gas energy exploration and drilling, and protecting critical national infrastructure.

Satellite services are also ideal for media agencies that are covering stories in remote locations, including international mega-events and disaster areas, and for Qatar’s fast-growing adventure travel sector for tour guides conducting desert safaris and other activities.

Ali Ahmed Al Kuwari, President and CEO, Es’hailSat, said: “Whether drilling for oil off-shore or working on mega-projects in-land, Es’hailSat’s expertise in satellite communication enables businesses of all sizes and verticals to adopt satellite services for their mission-critical operations. By continuing our partnership with Ooredoo, we are exchanging global best practices to support Qatar’s mobile workforces and economic growth.”

L-band satellite services delivered by Es’hailSat utilising Inmarsat satellites complement its existing portfolio of fixed Ku and Ka band services and are designed to provide customers with the most flexible and reliable access to satellite connectivity services in the region.
