Es'hailSat, Qatar Satellite Company and BridgeSat will provide businesses and governments across the Middle East with affordable access to laser-based satellite broadband services.
BridgeSat owns and operates a growing global network of optical ground stations (OGS) and complimentary satellite terminals that provide high-bandwidth, high-security solutions for unique applications while complementing RF in hybrid networks. Es’hailSat owns and operates a growing number of Ka- and Ku-band satellites serving broadcasters, businesses and governments in the MENA region and beyond.
Under the strategic relationship, BridgeSat will build its first OGS for the Middle East, which will be co-located at Es’hailSat’s new satellite operations center in Doha, Qatar. The new OGS will support LEO and other satellite systems owned by Es'hailSat and other companies that are equipped with BridgeSat and other compatible space terminals.
“Our new relationship with Es'hailSat gives us a critical gateway to the MENA region and is a major milestone toward our goal of providing organizations worldwide with fast, secure, enterprise-grade broadband services,” said Barry Matsumori, BridgeSat CEO.
”Es’hail-1 and Es’hail-2 satellites are fully operational, and we recently commenced satellite control and other satellite services from our state-of-the-art teleport in Doha,” said Ali Al Kuwari, President & CEO of Es’hailSat.
