Talia Offers New C-Band Services in the Americas
Talia International has announced new C-band services covering Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States. This additional service uses capacity on the SES 4 satellite at 22 degrees west and connects to the Talia Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network via the recently acquired iDirect hub located at Comsat’s teleport in Southbury, Connecticut. In addition, the new partnership with Comsat will provide teleport facilities to Talia’s existing Ku-band services running on the Eutelsat 113 West A satellite.
Talia also recently announced a new partnership with Arabsat for a new 10-channel video uplink to Arabsat’s Badr 7 satellite at 26 degrees east. The service will offer both Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) channel uplinks and will form the basis of a new high-power Ku-band neighborhood over Iraq. Content will be uplinked from the Talia teleport in Raisting, Germany and monitored for quality in the Talia Network Operations Center (NOC) in Erbil, Iraq.
“This service will start with 10 channels but we believe this will expand as more broadcasters reach the growing number of viewers in the region,” said Talia Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and President Alan Afrasiab.
