The expansion adds to the fast-growing list of markets where Transcelestial’s technology is helping connect people at faster, more reliable connectivity, including USA, Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Taiwan, Mongolia, Hong Kong and Australia.

United Arab Emirates, 20 Oct 2022Transcelestial is expanding into the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with systems integrator LinkQuest FZCO to introduce wireless laser communications to the region’s telecom companies, service providers, government, as well as enterprises from the oil and gas and banking-related sectors.

The UAE currently faces two essential communication hurdles: spectrum congestion and network outages. Transcelestial wireless laser comms offers the best solution to address these head-on, being spectrum-free and not susceptible to fiber-related downtime. Partnering up means we can offer a less costly, time-saving alternative to customers whose connectivity plans are delayed by fiber cuts or right-of-way issues, often caused by fiber cables that can take months to resolve,” said Mash Khan, CEO of LinkQuest FZCO.

Since 1993, UAE-based LinkQuest FZCO has provided supply and turnkey network solutions, as well as network-enabled services to multinational telecom companies, service providers and governments across the Middle East, Pakistan and various African countries.

Globally, UAE has the second-highest 5G take-up, with the government regularly investing more in 5G, as well as in infrastructure for connectivity. Laying fiber or RF solutions are the most common practice, but both options come with their own hurdles such as  high costs associated with civil work, right-of-way issues, as well as complications when navigating difficult terrain. In Dubai, where fiber is mostly laid underground, it is also necessary to dig tunnels for laying fiber.

In addition, accidental fiber cable cuts are also observed in every network, forcing operators to keep fully-equipped teams on standby should a cut interrupt service.

Going to market with LinkQuest FZCO in the UAE means that Transcelestial’s solution will be sold, implemented and supported locally through an authorised partner. Spanning over two decades, LinkQuest’s strong market presence in the telecom solutions sector means that organisations can look forward to localised support via a dedicated point of contact when deploying Transcelestial’s technology.

Setting up reliable connectivity infrastructure quickly is essential for the UAE, which aims to be a global leader in the technology space. Wireless laser communications helps provide that without the hassle of digging tunnels to lay fiber or risking downtime due to accidental fiber cuts. Partnering with Linkquest FZCO will allow us roll out connectivity at a faster time-to-market than traditional fiber cables for UAE organisations and provide the necessary customer support,” said Rohit Jha, CEO and Co-Founder of Transcelestial.

Transcelestial’s proprietary wireless technology creates an invisible laser communications network between buildings, cell towers and poles without the need for physical wires, delivering fiber-like speeds at a fraction of cost and time compared to fiber optic cables.
