(MENAFN - Gulf Times) Ooredoo and Es'hailSat have signed a major development and collaboration agreement that will see the two leading Qatari companies work together on a range of new satellite and world-class communication services for the country.

Under the terms of the agreement, Es'hailSat will become one of Ooredoo's preferred partners and work with Ooredoo to develop a cutting-edge portfolio of VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) and other satellite services for customers in Qatar.

The two companies will collaborate on designs and specifications for developing world-class VSAT projects for leading enterprises in Qatar. Demand for VSAT services has risen sharply in recent years, particularly from businesses with operations in remote locations, such as deserts and coastal areas, and Ooredoo and Es'hailSat believe there is a strong opportunity for #Qatar to achieve global leadership in this important area.
"Satellite-supported communications are opening new frontiers for businesses in #Qatar and across the region," said Waleed al-Sayed, CEO, Ooredoo Qatar.

By combining Ooredoo's industry expertise and Es'hailSat's growing fleet of satellites, #Qatar can be positioned as a true leader in this growing field, he observed.

"Ooredoo continues to invest in Qatari-led inovation with our national partners, and we are confident that our work with Es'hailSat will enhance the range of corporate, broadcast, and government services available."

Es'hailSat president and CEO Ali Ahmed al-Kuwari explained that the agreement with Ooredoo would help drive home-grown innovation in the field of satellite communication and stimulate the development of a full portfolio of new solutions to support business growth.

"Qatar is entering into an era of innovation and knowledge-led development, and our work with Ooredoo will bring important benefits for many of our nation's most important strategic industries."
Ooredoo offers one of the widest ranges of satellite services of any operator in the GCC, including Bandwidth Pooling, Maritime Solutions, and Auto-Acquire Antennas to support ad-hoc remote broadband.
By working with Es'hailSat, which already operates Es'hail 1 and is in the process of preparing for the launch of Es'hail 2 to be followed by a full global fleet, Ooredoo believes it can build its leadership position to serve the whole region and ultimately the global telecommunications industry.
Ooredoo #Qatar chief operating officer Yousuf al-Kubaisi and Es'hailSat 3 corporate and strategy vice president Saif al-Khaldi were present at the signing ceremony.
