Hermes Datacommunications (M) Sdn. Bhd. (Hermes Datacomms) and MEASAT Satellite Systems Sdn. Bhd. (MEASAT) announced an agreement for the provision of VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) satellite communication services across Malaysia’s offshore oilfields via the MEASAT-3 satellite.

Under the agreement, Hermes will base their new communications hub at the world-class MEASAT Teleport and Broadcast Centre. The Hermes Datacomms hub will provide telecommunications access to Malaysia’s growing oil and gas industry via VSAT connectivity. The hub represents a significant investment by Hermes to support a drilling campaign being carried out in Malaysian waters.

“This is a very exciting new service,” said Mohd Faizal Zainal Amri, General Manager, Hermes Malaysia. “Our new hub provides optimised bandwidth utilisation for efficient and reliable communications with high link quality to support voice calls, video and real-time data applications for Malaysian oilfields.”

“MEASAT is pleased to support Hermes to provide reliable satellite communications connectivity to the Malaysian oil and gas industry,” said Alex Tan, Director, Sales and Marketing, MEASAT. “Our collaboration with Hermes expands MEASAT’s support to local companies and the Malaysian Information and Communication Technology industry. We look forward to continue supporting Hermes as their service grows.”

“MEASAT provides the ideal platform for our service with excellent satellite coverage and customer care. Our customers appreciate the world-class technology and support being provided locally via Hermes and MEASAT,” concludes Faizal.
