Mubadala is investing in a portfolio of top-tier information and communications technology assets with the aim of establishing industry-leading capabilities and facilities in the regional market, as well as providing high-value employment opportunities across ICT sectors.

With capabilities in satellite operations, telecommunications, data storage and information security, Mubadala focuses on sectors of the industry which are capital and technology intensive, and support the creation of state-of-the-art ICT infrastructure in the UAE and in other parts of the world.

The key areas of the business relate to data and data connectivity, both terrestrial and satellite. 

In satellite operations, Mubadala aims to grow Yahsat organically and through acquisitions to become a leading operator. Yahsat is the first company in the Middle East and Africa to offer multipurpose satellite services to the region, reaching more than 140 countries, and is preparing to launch its third satellite in 2016.

In telecommunications, Mubadala partners with mobile operators in local and emerging markets that aim to enhance quality of service and increase customer choice. The company also seeks opportunities to invest in regional and global fiber optic networks to integrate the UAE into global delivery platforms.

Finally, in data storage, Mubadala continues to build on the reliable, flexible and secure data center infrastructure and services established through Injazat and Khazna. It is also exploring opportunities to expand its investments worldwide with the aim of tapping into the exponential increase in data usage globally.
