Announcement of partnership: AXESS Networks and Es’hailSat join forces in Qatar
AXESS Networks, a global leader of satellite communications solutions, and Es’hailSat, the Qatar Satellite Company, announced today the Strategic Partnership Agreement to provide Teleport and VSAT services for multiple sectors in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
AXESS Networks (AXESS) offers teleport and satellite communications services globally to customers in a broad range of industries including oil & gas, mining, maritime, telco, corporate, government and NGOs. AXESS manages the entire satellite communications value chain including strong VSAT networks, up/downlink services, satellite capacities, hosting, internet via satellite services.
Es’hailSat is a communications satellite operator and service provider headquartered in Doha, Qatar, delivering services to broadcasters, enterprises and governments in the MENA region and beyond. With the goal to become a world-class satellite operator and foremost service provider in the MENA region, Es’hailSat currently operates two GEO satellites and a state of the art teleport in Doha from where it provides independent, high-quality, advanced satellite services in the region.
To grow its operations in Qatar and in the Gulf & MENA region, AXESS has entered a strategic partnership agreement with Es’hailSat. The common goal of both partners is to expand their business, widen their customer base and upgrade the service quality. This multi-year, multi-service agreement will have Es’hailSat catering to AXESS’ VSAT networking requirements along with professional and high-quality services. The partnership is indeed a win-win situation: while AXESS will provide satellite communications services and acquire new business in Qatar and in the region, Es’hailSat will contribute with local services needed for the extension of AXESS’ operations. Es’hailSat will furthermore benefit from AXESS infrastructure and services to expand its own reach beyond the region and in particular the Maritime sector.
“Es’hailSat is happy to enter in to this partnership with AXESS to provide Teleport and VSAT services for customers across the region” said Mr. Ali Ahmed Al-Kuwari, President and CEO, Es’hailSat. “We believe that the highly robust and reliable data services offered by us at Es’hailSat provide the strong network base that AXESS needs to build services for customers in the region.”
“Qatar is the perfect location for further engagement in the Gulf and MENA region”, says Mauricio
Segovia, CEO at AXESS. “In Es’hailSat, we found the ideal partner for our operations, and we look
forward to joining forces. Our engineering and sales teams are ready to support the operations with our broad end-to-end managed solutions and with 24/7 NOC support.”
The multi-year agreement came into effect in December 2022.
