Du launches new VSAT service platform
Dubai, April 17, 2012
Du, a leading telecom service provider in the UAE, launched a new Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) services platform based on iDirect evolution technology.
The addition of this new platform to the company’s satellite data services portfolio augments its business offerings.
Under its VSAT offerings, du provides integrated end-to-end solutions for corporate and enterprise customers, delivered over a redundant backbone infrastructure.
Du VSAT offerings include IP VSAT, managed data network services over satellite and satellite integration solutions.
Additionally, du will offer a complete line of high quality and high performance internet, intranet and extranet solutions on VSAT, enabling customers to increase productivity and profitability through IP technology.
“VSAT represents a significant addition to our corporate and enterprise offerings. It provides a solid new base from which remote businesses - such as those in the oil and gas industry – are able to ensure reliable, consistent communications at all times. It will bring further convenience and flexibility to such industries,” said Farid Faraidooni, chief commercial officer, du.
VSAT services provide a transmission and networking connectivity utilising VSAT (earthbound station) and space segment to simulate terrestrial data networks.
These types of services are particularly useful for mobile platforms (marine), areas with no or limited terrestrial connectivity (deep desert), or as an alternative route (business continuity) to traditional telecommunication services. – TradeArabia News Service
