“RuSat” started to master one more segment of the telecommunications market| 31.10.2008
Thursday, October 30, company “RuSat” has announced that it has completed the construction of the receiving teleport is designed to receive television and radio programs.
According to General Director of “Rusala” Sergei alymova, the company started out as a classical VSAT operator. Then because of the competition on this one, while small, the market, the company decided
enter other segments of the telecommunications market. At first the operator started to provide services to the asymmetric access to the Internet, then engaged in lifting the TV signal to the satellite (up
link). Last year, the company decided to develop another new market segment – to organize the collection of TV content and its transmission in the optics. And Vice versa. And in Moscow, where the main
potential consumers of such services. In fact, requests to third-party companies and operators about the possibility of collection of a television signal and its transmission to the optician became one of the main
the reasons for the start of the project for the construction of the teleport in the collection of television content.
We will remind, about the beginning of works on the project “RuSat” announced in October last year. Then the satellite operator planned to build at its Moscow site antenna field of the antennas 12-15
produced by Andrew which would make the signal in the range of 14/11-12 GHz band from satellites having orbital positions from 0 to 103 degrees East longitude.
The cost of the project, completion of which is planned by the end of 2007, the company was estimated at 3 million rubles of the Possibility of teleport “RuSat” planned to use for service of broadcasters.
Namely to gather on the teleporter ordered their TV signals (thousands of television channels) from different satellites.
However, companies had to change their plans. Both for technical and for economic reasons. So, one of the reasons was that to accommodate the antenna field of a dozen or more
antennas require large area.
As a result of “RuSat” decided to use when creating the receiving teleport one, but Simulsat multibeam antenna manufactured by ATCi. This device allows you to receive signals from 35
satellites from orbital positions between 15 degrees West to 55 degrees East longitude. Under these conditions fall within the spacecraft: “Yamal-202”, “Express-AM1, Express-AM2”, Sirius
2, ABS 1, Hot Bird, Eutelsat W2, etc.
To date, to create teleport “RuSat” spent about 8 million rubles For further development of the teleport operator plans to spend about 15 million rubles. These funds company
going to spend on the installation of additional antennas that will receive signals from all satellites visible in Moscow, for the purchase and installation of the receiving
equipment, etc. (By the way, currently the operator is testing the appropriate equipment of different manufacturers.)
Services teleport “RuSat” intends to offer broadcasters television and radio programs, aggregators of television programs, the operators of broadcasting services on the DVB-T/DVB-H. the company Itself, according to its
head, to obtain a broadcasting license and to engage in such activities are planned.
