Airbus and STC Specialized partnered to make the Hajj 2018 safer. Reliable secure communications infrastructure contributed to the safety of more than 2 million pilgrims at the holy sites in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, the companies said.

House of Invention International (HOI) in Saudi Arabia also helped Airbus supply secure communications infrastructure to the security staff protecting this year’s Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.

STC Specialized is a national licensed operator in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, offering services and mission-critical solutions, as well as instant collaborative wireless communications systems to various industries. STC Specialized operates the secure mobile communication system to offer permanent connectivity to various partners in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
