Having begun life as a pure VSAT operator, working only with data and voice, Gulfsat’s business has continuously evolved.
The company began to move from offering VSATs for vertical markets to the DTH business in 2007. Now, it is embarking on a new venture.
Mohammed Al Haj, CEO, Gulfsat, said: “Today, we are looking again at the future so that we can further innovate and expand our market offering. We are looking to establish a new Broadcast Media Integration (BMI) business unit which will focus on the integration of media infrastructures and broadcast infrastructures with the IT engine and IT core. Gulfsat is in the satellite business - but we are also in the media business.”
“We don’t want to be just deliver connectivity. We want to add value within that connectivity by evolving the delivery of the content,” he continued. “That’s why we end up developing different business units, to provide a full turnkey solution to the end customer.”
Gulfsat deals with about 24 countries, mostly in the Middle East and North Africa.
