Marlink and Mahd Group Expand Partnership to Offer Connectivity Services in Oman

By Ken Briodagh

According to a recent announcement, the partnership between Marlink and Mahd Satellite has been furthered through the installation of a new Terralink Hub and RF uplink station at its headquarters in Muscat, in the Sultanate of Oman. This network operator service from Marlink is designed to enable Mahd Satellite to offer a range of VSAT communications capabilities for its customers while controlling the infrastructure to function within the country’s regulatory framework.

Marlink’s managed Terralink Hub service reportedly supplies a complete VSAT connectivity solution featuring 24/7 Level 2 monitoring and control and marketing and engineering support, with value-added IP services including internet backbone access, routing, firewalling and a customer portal.

For Mahd Satellite, the Terralink Hub’s managed service translates into a highly efficient and cost-effective means of meeting network capacity requirements and providing internet access for end-users to access diverse applications from business-critical email and video streaming to web browsing and support of internet apps.

“The installation of our versatile Terralink Hub on Mahd Satellite’s premises in Oman signifies a very promising development in the continuing alliance between our two companies,” said Kevin Thorley, Head of Sales Middle East, Marlink. “Not only is it an affirmation of the satisfaction which our connectivity services have already delivered, complying to a set of extremely specific parameters, but it also accentuates our commitment to facilitating business development for our partners in the Middle East. By providing Mahd Satellite with the ability to manage its own infrastructure, we have been instrumental in repositioning the company as a satellite operator, as opposed to a reseller, and we look forward to expediting many more partnerships in the future with a group that genuinely epitomises the ‘Marlink Entrepreneur spirit’.”
