The office will be located in Dubai’s Internet City. This office will serve as regional headquarters for the Middle East and African continent and will provide sales, technical support, an executive briefing center, and training facilities for the region.

O3b Networks, funded by Google Inc., Liberty Global, Inc. and HSBC Principal Investments, recently announced it will deploy the world’s first ultra-low-latency, Medium Earth Orbit (MEO), Ka-band, fiber-speed satellite network. The network is designed to improve Internet access for millions of consumers and businesses in emerging and developed markets, as well as selected vertical markets. Satellite delivery is scheduled for late 2010.

“Our Dubai office will allow us to place key resources near our customers” said John Finney, EVP Global Sales and Marketing, O3b Networks, Ltd. “We expect that Dubai will become a significant center for O3b operations in the Middle East and Africa. As such, we will be placing a number of key resources in the facility giving us and our customers the broadest array of support services available.”
