Es’hailSat sets out stall at Cabsat

Qatar-based satellite operator Es’hailSat has launched itself at the Cabsat Dubai exhibition this week, showcasing the first of its planned global fleet of satellites, Es’hail 1.

Es’hail 1 is scheduled for launch this summer, offering Ku-band and Ka-band capacity, with coverage of the MENA region from the 25.5° East orbital position.

Based in Doha, Qatar, the company will own and operate satellites to provide television, internet, corporate and government services to customers across the Middle East, North Africa and beyond.  About 13 million homes are reachable from the 25.5° East position.

“We are delighted to participate for the first time at Cabsat.  It is the must attend event for the broadcast, digital media and satellite sector in the region.  It’s also the ideal forum for us to showcase Es’hailSat as new but solid company with the credibility, resources and talent to deliver reliable, quality services across the Middle East and North Africa”, said Ali Al Kuwari, CEO of Es’hailSat. “With one satellite under construction and future satellites planned, Cabsat will help us to achieve our goal to become a world-class satellite operator and center of excellence in the region.  We will provide broadcasting independence, quality service and wide geographical coverage for this dynamic and fast-growing market in satellite services.  We see this exhibition as a key element in our marketing strategy going forward.”
