Talia increase capacity on Arabsat 5C Ka across the Middle East
Today Talia Limited expanded its successful partnership with Arabsat by leasing multiple transponders on the Ka-band High Throughput Satellite (HTS) of Arabsat’s 5C satellite, located at 20 Degrees East.
This multi-year agreement continues to strengthen the relationship between Talia and Arabsat. Talia will offer high-quality IP VSAT services in Ka-band to Iraq and Afghanistan that utilise the smaller, more affordable 75cm VSAT antennas.
The Middle East is already cited by the ITU as being the second least Internet-connected region in the world with 58% of the population being off-line.
Alan Afrasiab, President and CEO of Talia Limited added; “Talia has operated high-quality VSAT and terrestrial services across these regions for the past 15 years. These new Middle East Ka-band services complement our existing satellite coverage on Ka, Ku and C band in both the Middle East and Africa. By using the Arabsat HTS Ka-band platform we will bring new opportunities to the region with lower hardware costs and a more affordable service.
Utilising services such as this will give more people the opportunity to get online and help bridge the digital divide”.
On this occasion, Khalid Balkheyour, President & CEO at Arabsat, cited; “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Talia who are recognized worldwide for their reliable satellite and terrestrial networks solutions. The demand for connectivity in this region has seen a continuous growth and this agreement will further cement our partner’s confidence in Arabsat to provide high-quality and reliable services.”
