: du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), is soaring as a regional and global leader in Broadcast Services following its success in the latest annual World Teleport Association (WTA) rankings. With strong progress in The Independent 10 (5th) and The Global Top 20 (17th) categories of the WTA’s Top Teleport Operators of 2019, du continues to cement its position as a standout performer and innovator in the rapidly evolving teleport and media sector.
‘Soaring in the Broadcast space’
Farid Faraidooni Deputy CEO - Enterprise Solutions, du, said: “For over 15 years, du’s Broadcast and Media services have become a reputable force in the regional and global teleport space. We constantly aim to innovate the broadcast arena to ensure our customers receive best-in-class services, and our recent success in the latest edition of the WTA annual rankings reflects this commitment. Our new WTA milestones illustrate our endless pursuit to provision customers with bespoke managed broadcast services that seamlessly complement their offerings and create positive impacts for end users. As we enter a new decade, du will continue to innovate its capabilities to ensure that our customers can enter new markets and expand their reach across the globe with reliable, high-performing, and secure connectivity via our world-class teleports.”
‘Scaling new heights’
du’s rising success is a result of the organisation’s dynamic capabilities in the broadcast arena. This enables the company to offer regional and international broadcast and media players’ world-class solutions delivered through state-of-the-art teleport facilities, located in Dubai.
As the only teleport in the MENA region to be included in the list, du rose two places from The Global Top 20 (19th to 17th), after debuting in the category for the first time in the 2018 ranking. The Global Top 20 ranks companies based on revenues from all customised communications sources and includes operators of teleports and satellite fleets.
The company also scaled further up The Independent Top 10 rankings, from 6th in 2018 to 5th in 2019. This category focuses on the independent operators at the core of the business, excluding companies whose primary business is ownership and operation of a satellite fleet or terrestrial network.
The annual WTA rankings of companies by revenue and revenue growth are compiled by surveying teleport operators around the world as well as referencing the published results of publicly-held companies.
