ITC deploys offshore solution in Arabian Gulf

14 April 2015 |


Saudi Arabian network operator Integrated Telecom Company (ITC) has installed an offshore mobilised VSAT terminal in the Arabian Gulf.

The terminal will provide point-to-point connectivity between ZMI barges in the Arabian Gulf and onshore premises.

It is designed to support communications between offshore barges and onshore management in a secure and reliable manner.

 “The oil and gas industry is the biggest in Saudi Arabia and ITC is focused on serving this industry with the best connectivity secured solutions and technologies on the market. The VSAT connectivity we created for ZMI demonstrates this,” said Hani Al-Houbani, ITC’s manager for the Saudi eastern region.

The solution was deployed in collaboration with Zakher Marine International (ZMI); an Abu-Dhabi based provider of marine services to the offshore Oil and Gas industry in the Arabian Gulf.
