Dubai's Skystream Meets Connectivity Demands in Maritime & Energy Sectors

Press Release
Friday, July 27, 2012

Sky-Stream selects two Eutelsat satellites to support increasing demands from maritime and energy sectors.

Dubai-based Sky-Stream has selected capacity on two satellites operated by Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) to respond to connectivity demands from customers engaged in the marine and oil & gas sectors.

Sky-Stream has contracted for a total of 70 MHz of bandwidth which will be progressively deployed on two Eutelsat satellites: EUTELSAT 3C and EUTELSAT 10A. Their combined footprint provides coverage across Europe and the Mediterranean Basin, the Middle East and Africa.

Sky-Stream will use the new capacity to offer GSM backhaul, Internet access and on-Demand video services to its maritime and oil & gas customers.

Using an Automatic Beam Switching feature, Sky-Stream will use EUTELSAT 3C to extend its current Middle East Ku band coverage to the Mediterranean for the luxury yacht market.

The broad C-band beam of EUTELSAT 10A will further anchor Sky-Stream as a solid player servicing both maritime and energy (off and on shore) sectors in the Middle East, across the African continent and in Atlantic waters. EUTELSAT 10A's broad C-band footprint stretches SkyStream's existing C band coverage to almost two thirds of the globe, from Australia and East Asia across to the coast of the Americas.

"This is a strategic partnership for us," said Riyadh Al Adely, Managing Director of Sky-Stream. "Adding the extensive reach of EUTELSAT 10A to our existing C band footprint equips us to support multinational operations across continentsandto expand our service over the Atlantic.And EUTELSAT 3C is a great fit to our current resources for the luxury yacht market where we see tremendous potential for growth."
