For UAE based satellite operator Yahsat, this year’s GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK is extremely important due to the fact that it intends to launch operations during the first quarter of 2011.

The company is currently in the process of preparing a full range of satellite services and Shawkat Ahmed, Chief Commercial Officer, Yahsat, says that it will be promoting all of the key offerings that it plans to launch.

This includes YahClick, a satellite broadband service; YahSecure, a government satellite service; and YahLive, a satellite broadcast service; YahLink, a satellite connectivity service.

“Yahsat is the first company in the Middle East and Africa to offer multi-purpose satellite services to the region,” Ahmed says.

“It will offer voice, data, video and internet connectivity solutions customised for TV broadcasters, telecom operators, internet service providers, government agencies and business enterprises,” Ahmed says.

“Yahsat will also offer satellite broadband services in 26 countries to home users and public and private enterprises.”

“Yahsat at this stage is in the process of appointing service partners for its YahClick broadband service. GITEX provides an opportunity to interact with potential service partners and customers, since GITEX and GulfComms attract leading telecom operators and service providers from the region,”  Ahmed adds.

“We also expect to meet up with potential customers leasing our satellite capacity,” he reveals.

Ahmed adds that GITEX will also provide an ideal opportunity for Yahsat to finalise agreements with potential partners and customers before its launch, which is expected in the first quarter of next year.

Furthermore, the strong Middle East focus of GITEX is also of importance to Yahsat, which was formed to meet the “unfulfilled demand in the region for multi-purpose satellite services that offer advanced satellite solutions,” according to Ahmed.
