Most innovative use of new technology

Winner: Inmarsat

Judges' verdict: This award seeks to promote the uptake of new networking technologies or systems in the region. Inmarsat has used its SwiftBroadband services and know-how to help Emirates Airlines, one of the biggest airline operators in the region, offer in-flight GSM usage, as well as in-flight text and e-mail capabilities.

It is also in the process of deploying similar services for another major airline provider in the Middle East.

The company provides internet and application access for international long-haul aircrafts across the globe, and this continuing work makes Inmarsat the undisputed winner of the category.

Al Shafar General Contracting
Saudi Arabian Airlines, KSA
