PRESS RELEASE — Dubai / May 17, 2023 / BUSINESS WIRE / — Kymeta (www.kymetacorp.com), a world leading flat panel satellite antenna company, today announced at CABSAT 2023 that telecom service provider Azyan Telecom (azyansat.om) signed a significant order for its Hawk™ u8 terminals connected by OneWeb, bringing Kymeta and OneWeb’s one-of-a kind LEO (Low Earth Orbit) offering to Oman for the first time. The deal will enable expansion of national telecom capabilities in the region, expediting efforts to implement ubiquitous high-speed, low-latency communications capabilities across the Sultanate.

Uniquely enabled by a software-first approach, Kymeta’s electronically steered flat panel Hawk u8 will help deliver reliable, truly mobile broadband connectivity across sectors in Oman connected via OneWeb’s LEO 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.

“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 customers around the world,” said Walter Berger, President and Co-CEO, Kymeta. “We are invigorated by the opportunity to deliver our solutions to the Sultanate of Oman alongside Azyan Telecom, which we see as an emblematic step forward as we continue to expand our partnerships in the region.”

Ahmed Saber, Chief Operation Officer, Azyan Telecom added:

“Today marks an exciting milestone, both for the growth of Oman’s LEO 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.”

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