With a population of nearly 9.5 million, mostly comprised of expatriates, the UAE is a country that lies in Western Asia, at the South East end of the Arabian Peninsula. The country is bordered by Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the South. The UAE’s oil reserves are the 7th largest in the world and though the economy has been diverisifed, the country is still very much dependent upon the export of petroleum and natural gas with 85% based on oil products.
The UAE has a very well developed communications infrastructure and over 90% of the population is connected to the Internet. Mobile penetration is also high. However, the UAE development goals are inextricably linked with broadband and include areas such as health, education and better economic infrastructure. The slogan for the initiative is ‘Leaving Noone Behind’, yet there are still approximately 10 percent of the country’s population that is yet to gain access to the Internet.
Satellite connectivity can help even a very well conencted country like UAE. Although, on the surface, it may seem that the country needs little help in terms of communications, gaps still exist and reaching the last pockets of population in rural regions is a real challenge. Terrestrial infrastructure such as fibre does not come cheap. Therefore, in order to reach these outlying areas, another method of connectivity is required to extend broadband and even mobile broadband services to communities that are currently underserved or unserved. This is where the use of a satellite-based solution can make all the difference.
