Delivers VSAT services to small and medium corporate enterprises and ships operating in and outside of this fast-growing region.
Intelsat S.A. operator of the world’s first Globalized Network, powered by its leading satellite backbone, announced that Detecon Al Saudia Co. Ltd has renewed and expanded its contract for Ku-band satellite services to deliver broadband and internet connectivity to corporate networks operating in and outside of Saudi Arabia.
Under the multi-year contract, DETASAD will leverage Ku-band services via Intelsat 15 at 85′ East and Intelsat 20 at 68.5′ East to guarantee access to the highest levels of broadband connectivity for its enterprise customers. DETASAD incorporates Intelsat’s satellite services into the largest financial transaction networks in the region, supporting a very large number of Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) located throughout Saudi Arabia, among other applications where high reliability and security are critical to success.
‘We partnered with Intelsat to complement our existing telecom infrastructure as Intelsat’s satellite solutions have a strong track record of seamlessly and securely connecting broadband networks across a vast area,’ said Adel Al Gidawi, CFO, Detecon Al Saudia Co. Ltd. (DETASAD). ‘Intelsat and DETASAD have been in the VSAT business together since 2003. Throughout our relationship, Intelsat has proven to be a strategic and trusted partner that has helped us meet the high standards of our customers across multiple sectors. As the demands placed on us by broadband users in Saudi Arabia continue to grow, extending our relationship with Intelsat will provide us with the bandwidth necessary to extend our network, grow our business and, most importantly, support the needs of communities and businesses located throughout the region.’
Along with powering Saudi Arabia’s ATM networks, DETASAD serves a wide range of corporate networks that are used by small and medium enterprises, maritime operators, oil and gas companies, government agencies, and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to help power the country’s economy and deliver services to urban and remote areas.
‘We understand that DETASAD’s customers are diverse in nature and as such, have unique requirements,’ said Jean-Philippe Gillet, Intelsat’s Vice President, Europe, Middle East and Africa. ‘The breadth and depth of Intelsat’s globalized network enable us to tailor our services to meet the broadband requirements for companies and communities across sectors. With the demand for broadband connectivity only increasing in the Middle East, we look forward to working with DETASAD to deliver high quality, reliable and secure internet and broadband connectivity to corporate enterprises and customers across the banking, oil and gas and government sectors.
