Santander Teleport is providing X-band teleport services for In-Orbit Testing of a recently launched commercial satellite in collaboration with a major satellite operator. The satellite was successfully launched on a Proton rocket from Baikonur Cosmodrome last December and will be delivering next generation broadcast, VSAT and broadband services in Europe, Middle East and Africa
Spanish Antarctic expedition uses VSAT services provided by Santander Teleport and Erzia to enable remote communications to scientists on board an oceanographic research vessel. The latest modem, traffic acceleration and data compression technologies have enabled the best use of the space segment on XTAR-LANT satellite, reducing bandwidth costs to the customer.
This X-band satellite service is fully managed by the Santander Teleport 24/7 Network Operations Centre.
Santander Teleport, along with Satcom Direct and MTNGOV, has successfully completed a live demonstration of a satellite transmission using five different aeronautical antennas. These unprecedented tests were carried out at our Spanish teleport facilities and will support our partners and customers in their ambition to provide first-class satellite services for the aero industry.
Manufacturers involved include: GD Satcom, L-3 Communications, Rantec Microwave Antennas, Tecom and Thinkom Solutions.
