March 10, 2020 – ABS and TheAngle, a satellite network services integrator, has announced they have extended their joint activities in the MENA region, serving customers across the ABS’ footprints at 75 degrees East. The collaboration focusses on providing energy, enterprise and government customers with bespoke, cost-effective communication solutions including ground segment facilities and flexible bandwidth allocations on ABS-2 and ABS-2A satellites, co-located at the prime location of 75°E. Both satellites offer prime capacity over the Middle East, accessible also from Europe, as well as coverage of the African and Asian continents over multiple beams. The satellite services demand in the MENA market remains strong, driven by traditional verticals such as oil and gas, maritime/mobility and governmental. Broadband, video contribution and video distribution are also key applications hosted on the ABS satellites.
