Teleport Offers Commercial and Government Organizations Access to C-, Ku-Band and Secure X-Band Services from a Single Location

MIRAMAR, Fla. – April 26, 2011 – MTN Satellite Communications (MTN), the global provider of communications, connectivity and content services to remote locations around the world, and ERZIA, the leading provider of VSAT maritime communications in Spain, today announced that their joint venture to develop a teleport in Santander Spain has been completed and is officially open. It now serves as a centralized gateway for MTN’s VSAT communications with coverage over the Americas, Europe, and Asia. The facility is located in Santander, North Spain at 43°27’46’’N, 3°48’18’’W.

The new facility is one of the first in the world to provide C- and Ku-band commercial service as well as secure X-band service for government customers at a single location. The Santander teleport can see all of the satellites in the GEO orbit from 60W to 65E, thus covering a region from Western Australia to North America, Mediterranean Sea, Indian and Atlantic Oceans. Importantly, the new teleport is strategically located in the intersection of the coverage of Xtar satellites, therefore able to uplink and downlink from both X-band satellites.

“The combined resources of MTN and ERZIA within the Santander teleport offer efficient and innovative managed networking technologies from a new and far reaching international satellite gateway,” said Richard Hadsall, CTO at MTN. “Our intent is that this new facility will lift the whole industry to a far more competitive position by creating attractive opportunities for not only MTN but for Spanish and European service providers, enterprise and even consumer subscribers.”

The Santander teleport provides a significant improvement in network efficiency, reliability, and customer service that augments the MTN worldwide infrastructure of redundant teleports and dedicated fiber optic links. In addition, it has a fully manned 24/7 network operations center providing European time zone coverage and local language operators to deliver quality service to global customers.
