At the occasion of ARABSAT 13th TELECOM FORUM gathering the worldwide leading actors in satellite communications, ARABSAT and ACTIA Telecom – a company of the ACTIA Group – have announced the signature of Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen a strategic business relationship initiated a few years ago.


ARABSAT and the French Satcom integrator joint their complementary expertise to offer ARABSAT end-users state of the art and cost-effective solutions of end-to-end satcom solutions for commercial customers in the MENA region.

While ARABSAT will provide high throughout satcom capacity in Ku Appendix, ACTIA Telecom will integrate, deliver, install and support the Ku Appendix satellite communications terminals.

This business model shall be extended for other satellites services in Ku and Ka Band.  ACTIA Telecom has a large range of terminals and satcom power amplifiers fitting the needs of ARABSAT – or the ones of its clients –  wherever its satellite capacity is available in the MENA region.

“ARABSAT operates the most trusted satellites’ fleet in Arab world and beyond, delivering high quality service. Along with ACTIA Telecom, we will continue delivering innovative solutions  through cutting edge space and ground technologies to be the destination for satellite communications and one stop shop for our customers.” Dr. Badr AlSuwaidan, ARABSAT CEO said about this partenership
