Kymeta, the flat panel satellite antenna firm, announced at CABSAT 2023 that telecom firm Azyan Telecom signed a significant order for its Hawk™ u8 terminals connected by OneWeb, bringing Kymeta and OneWeb’s LEO (Low Earth Orbit) offering to Oman for the first time.

What does the partnership mean for Oman?

This will enable expansion of national telecom capabilities in the region, expediting efforts to implement high-speed, low-latency communications capabilities across the Sultanate.

Kymeta’s electronically steered flat panel Hawk u8 will help deliver reliable, truly mobile broadband connectivity across sectors in Oman connected via OneWeb’s Low Earth Orbit satellite constellation, including in areas where challenging terrain and frequent hurricanes often hinder high-speed connectivity offerings. The deal follows closely on the heels of Kymeta’s announcement that the Hawk u8 is now commercially available worldwide.

Widely adopted by military, govt, and enterprises, Kymeta offers high-bandwidth, low-power, fully integrated family of high throughput mobile terminals. With the Hawk u8 LEO terminal, Kymeta clients can access OneWeb’s high-speed, low-latency broadband connectivity services while on the move or stationary as these services are rolled out across the world.

Ahmed Saber, Chief Operation Officer, Azyan Telecom commented, “Today marks an exciting milestone, both for the growth of Oman’s Low Earth Orbit market and our efforts to enhance high-speed satellite connectivity for companies and communities across the region.”

“Our deal with Kymeta will allow us to deliver on the widespread demand for reliable connectivity, in line with Oman’s digital transformation strategy. We are thrilled at the opportunity to expand upon our offerings in support of industries across Oman and grateful for the continued support of the Telecommunication Regulatory Authority,” Saber added.

“As access to mobile broadband becomes increasingly imperative for progress across every major industry, Kymeta has doubled down on our commitment to deliver truly mobile connectivity to clients around the world,” said Walter Berger, President and Co-CEO, Kymeta.

“We are really excited by the opportunity to deliver our solutions to Oman alongside Azyan Telecom, which we see as a giant step forward as we expand our partnerships in the region.”

The terminals will be available for delivery to the Omani market in Q1, 2024.
