du has announced a new teleport facility to meet the expanding requirements from du customers, as well as benefit regional broadcasters.

The facility will be located in Al Qudra, where it will cover an area of 75,000sq metres and it is built to accommodate 50 earth station antenna systems, with the room to expand.

The facility aims to deliver a superior service with a focus on service reliability and close control and monitoring of services uplinked from there. The number of TV channels being uplinked by its current teleport facility has grown by 600% since it started operations in 2004, and now with the new site, du will be able to meet the growing demands of satellite TV offerings.

Ahmed Al Muhaideb, vice president, Broadcasting and IPTV Services, said: "In order for du to meet the growing requirements of customers in the region and internationally we have come up with our new Teleport facility.

"As broadcast requirements continue to proliferate, we will endeavour to innovate and offer our customers new broadcast solutions that will deliver on superior quality of service."

The initial planning of du's new teleport site began in 2010 and after intensive checking in terms of the location, the technical design phase started, which included civil and electromechanical works and satellite transmission systems.

The facility will be scaled up even further to cover all broadcasting operations, including TV signal processing and TV Playout services, to ensure service fulfilment for du's  TV broadcasting partners.
