February 22, 2021 – ABS and TheAngle have extended their partnership in the MENA region, serving customers across the ABS’ MENA coverage at 75 degrees East. The expanded and upgraded services focus on the provision of secure and reliable communications services for government, military institutions, and energy companies – oil and gas especially in the GCC countries and Iraq. For such industries, satellite remains strategic and the preferred solution to ensure quality communications, notably from/to remote locations and offshore facilities. In general demand for satellite services in the MENA market remains robust, driven by increased activities in the traditional verticals of corporate data services and governmental applications, key applications carried over ABS satellites and TheAngle networks.
