March 24, 2022
AXESS Networks (AXESS), a global provider of satellite-based communications solutions, reports that its local entity in Dammam in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia reached above target results and operations will further expand to cater for the growing connectivity demand across the country.
After founding AXESS Saudi Arabian Telecommunications Company (AXESS Saudi Arabia) AXESS has started Teleport operations in 2021. AXESS Saudi Arabia provides end-to-end managed satellite communications solutions designed to strengthen customer’s operations in Saudi Arabia.
AXESS Saudi Arabia invested in encompassing hardware and assets to operate its services directly out of Dammam to its diverse customer base in Oil & Gas, Mining, Government, Maritime, and Telco. The coupling of AXESS satellite communications expertise with its local presence of field engineers and technicians enables AXESS to offer Fully Managed Services. The specific local requirements in the Kingdom require the full service including the provision and installation of Hardware, 24/7 operations and support, IP Backbone connectivity and licensing, which is executed by AXESS Saudi Arabia with great success.
AXESS Saudi Arabia utilises satellite capacity from our long-term partner Arabsat in Ku-Band on the satellite BADR-5. The Teleport in Dammam is fully redundant and connected to different redundant terrestrial carrier.
Richard Begnaud, General Manager of AXESS Saudi Arabia, commented: “The high local demand has led to a much faster growth than initially planned, which enables us to add further networks and capacities on new transponders.”
In the near future AXESS plans to expand its offerings within the region by adding further coverages on additional satellites. Today, the fully managed services comprise the whole value-chain: sourcing of adequate hardware, installation of the equipment, line-up of remote station, monitoring and managing the service, training, and consulting services.
“We are delighted about the developments and great relationships that we could further deepen through our own legal entity in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With the local presence and operation, we have been able to take business relations to the next level, especially in the Oil & Gas sector”, stated Ralf Schmitz. “Our local participations at trade shows and other events foster our focus into expanding into new markets, such as Construction and Mining.”
