AXESS Networks and ABS have signed an agreement to launch a new network increasing AXESS’ Middle East coverage.

The agreement provides AXESS Networks with expanded opportunities for both terrestrial and maritime clients in the region strengthening AXESS’ dual-use strategy for the ABS-2A satellite.

This latest development complements AXESS’ existing Ku-band satellite coverage of the Middle East already bolstered by previous agreements supporting networks on the ABS-3A and ABS-2 satellites.

“Our rapid successive roll-out of AXESS networks in the Middle East promotes our service offerings in the maritime, oil & gas, enterprise and telco markets” said Guido Neumann, President at AXESS EMEA. “Additionally, it provides an attractive option for new clients looking to improve their communications to their fixed and mobile activities in the region.”

Adrian Redfern, Director of Business Development at AXESS EMEA, added: “ABS-2A’s coverage in the region is ideal for supporting AXESS’ maritime clients navigating through the Suez Canal. As more vessels benefit from satellite communications supported by AXESS’ unlimited, uncapped and unthrottled Ku-band networks, the increased demand is promoting an organic expansion of our already substantial geographic network coverage.”

"Through our collaboration with AXESS Networks, ABS continues to extend its global reach, bringing seamless satellite communications to the Middle East and beyond,” commented Ramsey Khanfour, Chief Commercial Officer of ABS. “As AXESS Networks promotes its service offerings to key verticals on land and at sea, ABS-2A's ideal coverage in the region provides robust and reliable communications, enabling all business segments to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world.”

Chris Spore, VP Sales of ABS, asserted: “Working with the AXESS Networks team to grow their global coverage is always rewarding. Together we are able to discuss ideas and innovate, working in partnership to find the right solution to enable first-class maritime and land-based solutions.”
