iSat (Integrated Satellite Applications Technologies Ltd) and Es’hailsat have announced that two pilot terminals with VST technology have been delivered and installed at Es’hailSat’s HQ based in Doha, Qatar to commercialise Es’hail’s Ka-band payloads. The establishment of Es’hailSat in 2010 was for the provision of specialised satellite services to key customers and stakeholders. The third quarter of 2013 saw the launch of the corporation’s first ever satellite, Es’hail 1.
The installation enables the provision of secure connections and advanced coverage for government and business services across the MENA area in its entirety. Small mobile or fixed antennae will be able to receive exclusive telecoms services including corporate networking, access to broadband Internet and other similar service provisions.
