Batelco, the region’s prime teleport services provider, continues to provide world-class teleport services to satellite and VSAT operators, with the company’s fully equipped teleport placing Bahrain on the global map of satellite operations. The satellite industry is a key catalyst for the Bahraini economy, as it services a number of verticals including maritime, oil and gas, enterprise and broadcast.

The multi-layered nature of the satellite environment makes delivering services through satellite operations a rigorous process. Batelco’s experts are fully equipped to manage and deliver such services, with Batelco’s teleport boasting a 30,000 square metre operational area with partners gaining access to the telecom’s MPLS, SDH national, international networks and internet uplinks. The teleport presents an optimum choice for satellite and VSAT operators around the globe as it can run any application on any topology.

Considering the need for the satellite industry to adapt to the rapidly changing demands of end-customers, Batelco’s diverse and resilient facility also features seamless integration with terrestrial networks and provides full support for satellite and VSAT operators to streamline their operations efficiently. Batelco encourages these operators to diversify their service offerings, as the teleport allows them the ability to offer more services to end-users. Through this, Batelco aims to facilitate the operators’ growth.

Batelco Chief Global Officer, Adel Al-Daylami, explained that with an increased demand for connectivity over a reliable infrastructure now, satellite operators have more requirements.

“As a result, we are increasingly focusing on our teleport services, and enhancing our facility to meet the changing demands of the market,” he added.

To better showcase Batelco’s capabilities and offerings, a number of Batelco executives will be attending the CABSAT exhibition and conference held at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 8 to 10 March.
