The collaboration has formalized through the signing of two Memoranda of Understandings (MoUs) at a ceremony held at the National Aerospace Science and Technology Park (NASTP) in Rawalpindi.
The IoT-focused MoU establishes a technical framework for integrating DynaSys’ IoT platform and end-user devices with PTCL’s Cloud, cybersecurity infrastructure, as well as wired and wireless transmission networks. This collaboration aims to create a fully integrated IoT service, a pioneering initiative in Pakistan, to made available to customers across the country. The shared vision of both organizations is to jointly become Pakistan’s largest IoT service provider with a target of achieving one million active end-user subscriptions.
Aamer Ejaz, Group Vice President, Carrier Services, PTCL & Ufone 4G, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, “We are excited to establish a partnership with DynaSys to support the IoT and satcom needs of our business partners.

Ali Akhtar, Founder and CEO of DynaSys Networks, emphasized the significance of the collaboration, saying, “The framework that DynaSys and PTCL have formally signed today is a giant leap towards realizing IoT in Pakistan. The missing piece of the puzzle so far has been the platform, which we have now solved. In the months ahead, we will be working closely to materialize Pakistan’s first full-fledged IoT service. In the realm of satellite communications, it is natural that the talent of both organizations would gravitate towards each other to create a high-impact market presence. We are taking solid steps to dominate this space in Pakistan and expand to the broader region.”
The second MoU aligns the technical and commercial expertise of DynaSys’ satellite communications team with PTCL’s extensive satellite communications infrastructure and rich history of satellite services in Pakistan.
