Indosat Ooredoo, the leading mobile operator in Indonesia, has signed an agreement with global mobile satellite services operator, Thuraya Telecommunications to develop a new range of services for business customers in Indonesia.

New services will be developed using Indosat SIM cards roaming on the Thuraya network as well as bundling satellite devices with Indosat Ooredoo digital applications. At a later stage, Thuraya and Indosat also plan to develop additional use cases for the burgeoning Internet-of-Things(IoT) market.

The satellite-powered business applications allow organisations to extend their services beyond terrestrial networks, whenever they have remote connectivity requirements across various extreme environmental conditions. Indosat has identified an extensive range of specific sector opportunities for Thuraya land, data and maritime services, said Thuraya.

The full scope of markets now set for transformational communications capabilities across Indonesia includes oil and gas, and mining; plantations; high end yachting, merchants and fishing; military and police services.

Bilal Hamoui, Chief Commercial Officer, Thuraya
This is an important step towards an extensive and exciting long term collaboration. Indonesia is a large country covering a vast area, and it needs comprehensive connectivity at all times. Our capabilities are complementary, and we will be able to give end users far greater flexibility than they have now.

Herfini Haryono, Indosat Ooredoo Director & Chief Wholesale & Enterprise
By adding satellite connectivity from Thuraya to the Indosat Ooredoo Business portfolio we continue to deliver on our strategy to lead in digital transformation. I am delighted we are able to support more of our customers in taking advantage of all that technology has to offer anytime, anywhere.
