Inmarsat will outline its plans for development in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) at CABSAT 2016. This follows the recent grant of a Public Satellite Service License for Inmarsat services to operate in the region. The licence gives Inmarsat permission to offer its services to public and private sector users in government, media, maritime and aviation markets, and to help support humanitarian and emergency relief efforts in the UAE.
“Inmarsat has long considered the UAE a key region for future development,” Paul Gudonis VP, Enterprise, Inmarsat said. "Traditionally the UAE has been viewed by the satellite industry as a single-market economy – oil and gas. However, Inmarsat has observed development and growth in several key UAE markets; from transportation and logistics, to exciting new developments in agri-tech, to the construction of infrastructure, and the diversification in the energy and resources market to focus on renewable energy sources. I’m confident that Inmarsat’s reliable connectivity can help to support the development of these and other markets in the region.”
Inmarsat is exhibiting at CABSAT 2016 and will announce a major development at the show, further outlining the company’s commitment to development in region.
