Du Launches “VSAT” Service Platform

Enhancing its Satellite data business offerings, Du has launched a new Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) services platform based on iDirect evolution technology.

The addition of this new platform to the company’s satellite data services portfolio brings even more value to its extensive bouquet of business offerings.

Under its VSAT offerings, Du provides integrated end-to-end solutions for corporate and enterprise customers, delivered over a redundant backbone infrastructure.

 Du VSAT offerings include: IP VSAT; Managed Data Network services over satellite; Satellite Integration Solutions.

 Additionally, Du will offer a complete line of high quality and high performance internet, intranet and Extranet solutions on VSAT, enabling customers to increase productivity and profitability through IP technology.

 “VSAT represents a significant addition to our corporate and enterprise offerings. It provides a solid new base from which remote businesses – such as those in the oil and gas industry – are able to ensure reliable, consistent communications at all times. It will bring further convenience and flexibility to such industries,” said Farid Faraidooni, Chief Commercial Officer, Du.

 VSAT services provide a transmission and networking connectivity utilizing Very Small Aperture Terminals (earthbound station) and Space Segment to simulate terrestrial data networks, as Emirates News Agency (WAM) stated.

 These types of services are particularly useful for mobile platforms (marine), areas with no or limited terrestrial connectivity (deep desert), or as an alternative route (business continuity) to traditional telecommunication services.

 Du’s portfolio of VSAT services will allow subscribers to extend their connectivity rapidly to use all the conventionally required corporate telecom services, with assured reliability and guaranteed availability of service covered by Du’s robust Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
