Omani telecom provider Omantel has entered a partnership with UK-based firm Inmarsat to provide its customers communication solutions and satellite-oriented value added services
Inmarsat owns and operates three global constellations of 12 satellites flying in geosynchronous orbit that would provide the services to Omantel’s customers.
Ali Bakhit Kashoob, senior manager of product development corporate at Omantel, said, “This partnership comes as a response to our corporate customers’ needs and provide them with alternative connectivity solutions. Oman has diversified topography, which makes it challenging in some cases for companies operating in difficult terrains to communicate with their headquarters and clients located in different parts of the sultanate or the entire world.”
Through the partnership, seamless voice, broadband data and IP communication solutions can be provided to corporate customers, who may not be covered by terrestrial networks, confirmed Omantel officials. The services would enable customers to remain connected with their customers as well as local and foreign partners.
