Muscat: Orbcomm, a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions, has announced that Mahd Telecom, its Oman-based national service provider partner for Oman and other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, has been granted regulatory approval to provide Orbcomm services in Oman. Issuance of the service authorization allows for installation of a new Orbcomm Gateway Earth Station (GES) in Oman and completion of the radio spectrum licensing process. 

“With the successful launch of the first OG2 mission and the impending improvements in service, we are focusing on all aspects of our network to deliver the best satellite M2M product in the industry,” said Marc Eisenberg, ceo of Orbcomm. “The new authorization and GES installation in Oman will significantly improve service levels in the Middle East region and provide satellite access to a new major market for deployment of Orbcomm solutions.”  [30/07/14]
