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.

Adding to its achievements in this field, Batelco has obtained a teleport certification from Eutelsat and is now listed as an approved teleport operator to provide services to customers of Eutelsat.

Eutelsat’s customers in return can benefit and make use of Batelco’s teleport facilities in Bahrain which provides seamless integration with national and international terrestrial and submarine networks and provides full support for satellite and VSAT operators to streamline their operations efficiently.

Batelco was awarded the certification after going through a comprehensive process, working closely with Eutelsat, to ensure the teleport meets the global standards of Eutelsat and is properly equipped to meet the global standards.

Batelco Bahrain CEO Eng. Muna Al Hashemi said that the new certification added further weight to Batelco’s global services portfolio.

“Such recognition demonstrates the commitment of Batelco towards service excellence and promoting Bahrain as a global hub for services,” she added.

Batelco Chief Global Business Officer Adel Al-Daylami added that Batelco, as the Middle East’s prime teleport services provider, provides world-class teleport services to satellite operators.

The teleport presents an optimum choice for satellite and VSAT operators around the globe as it can run any application on any topology,” said Mr. Al-Daylami
