The antenna farm at the teleport is extensive. We can get up-to or down-from more satellites in the region than any other Middle East teleport.

Steerable antennas dedicated for occasional services can be used for other satellites as per your requirements. The availability of the satellites provides you with near-global coverage out of Dubai.

We are set to expand our capabilities with a new teleport facility. Let us know what your future requirements are and we can create a bespoke solution for your broadcast needs.

Total control over end-to-end services, running through the teleport with proven infrastructure, provides customers with full support and back-up, remote monitoring and network management. A dedicated team of trained personnel offer 24X7 support from our Customer Care.

To meet the communication requirements and business plans of our end customers, we have a network that reaches a wide range of international locations. It can meet higher volume traffic requirements of both the world’s traditional business centre and emerging economies. This is based on delivering high quality global connectivity services to ensure that our network achieves maximum availability.
