The most popular capabilities at our teleports are:
- Uplinking – Providing large antennas and RF equipment at a secure earth station that enable the transmission of a communications service to one or more Telesat satellites (earth-to-space). Typical uplink services support mobile broadband for maritime and aeronautical markets, video broadcasting and enterprise VSAT networks.
- Co-location Services - Telesat provides rack space, conditioned power, security and support for servers and solutions that customers can manage remotely – from an office or while in transit. Customers can even add remotes, change performance parameters and security levels on their own, or utilize Telesat support as needed.
- SCPC Service - Dedicated IP bandwidth to terrestrially challenged remote areas around the world, typically using SCPC modems provided by Telesat at the teleport end. Traffic can be transported to the Internet or a customer’s private backhaul.
Hub-based services – Telesat operates hub platforms from respected leaders in satellite broadband – iDirect worldwide and Hughes in Canada – that can simultaneously support many high performance networks, using DVB-S2/ACM and other transmission technologies, across multiple satellites in either C-band, Ku-band or Ka-band. High levels of redundancy are integrated into all critical components to assure maximum availability. The most popular hub based service today is:
- VNO (Virtual Network Operator) and Hosted VNO Services - Telesat provides all the iDirect hub hardware required at our teleport locations to support VNOs. With a Hosted VNO, customers provide their own line cards, protocol processors and NMS and realize the benefits of low costs, scalability and rapid deployment.
