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 will bring further convenience and flexibility to such industries,” said Farid Faraidooni, Chief Commercial Officer, du. 

VSAT services provide a transmission and networking connectivity utilising Very Small Aperture Terminals (earthbound station) and Space Segment to simulate terrestrial data networks. 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).
