[Via Satellite 03-10-2015] UAE-based teleport operator du awarded Globecomm a multimillion-dollar contract to build a new teleport for the company to relocate. The new facility, also located in the UAE, will host more than 50 Earth stations supporting C, Ku and Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) frequencies with satellite antennas ranging from 2.4 to 9 meters in diameter.
The augmentation also incorporates the provision of all supporting systems, such as baseband, network management, turnaround services, fiber optic and others. From the company’s current teleport, du links the majority of Direct to Home (DTH) TV platforms in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region.
The project’s timeline will result in a phased transfer of du’s satellite transmission services to the new teleport. Globecomm expects the project will migrate live traffic without interrupting critical services.
