      [Via Satellite 05-12-2015] Hermes Datacomms, part of the SpeedCast Group, announced the opening of its newest office in Erbil, Iraq. The new facility is in direct response to increasing demand for services from the oil and gas sector in Iraq.

      Hermes Datacomms has been operating in the Middle East for more than 10 years. In 2011, the company was awarded a trading license for Iraq and has since been working with partners to deliver turnkey projects involving fiber and last-mile access as well as VSAT services, fixed, mobile and microwave services.
      “Iraq has been a strategic market for Hermes for the past 3 years. With the opening of the company’s newest office in Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan region of Northern Iraq, we are well-positioned for growth in the region,” Osama Oulabi, Business Unit Manager, Middle East at Hermes.
