Home Deals SpeedCast awarded new Middle East managed services contract

Australian global satellite communications and network services provider SpeedCast has secured a contract to provide a fully managed network service to a Middle East global oilfield service company for 10 sites in the UAE and Oman, as an expansion to current services in other regions.

SpeedCast’s Keith Johnson, senior vice-president and general manager – energy, says  managed services create significant value for the company’s customers as they deliver “end-to-end service managing and controls all aspects of the network as well as the complexity of the local licensing and regulatory requirements”.

“That way, we ensure networks are delivered on-time and on-budget, comply with local laws, and meet the most demanding operational standards. With a managed service agreement, we can react quickly to new requirements and provide services to new sites in a seamless manner.”

According to SpeedCast chief executive Pierre Jean Beylier, the contract with the (unnamed) company demonstrated SpeedCast’s ability to achieve “revenue synergies as a result of our recent acquisitions”.

“We have been serving the customer through different entities in different regions and we are now growing as a more significant global partner for them. Our recent acquisitions position us well to expand our services to regions where we have not had a strong presence historically.

“The Middle East is a good example of that, with our expanded Dubai office and our office in Iraq. Our unique global infrastructure and service network are positioning us well to service energy customers wherever they are.”
