Batelco, the region’s prime teleport services provider, continues to provide world-class teleport services to satellite operators, with the company’s fully equipped teleport placing Bahrain on the global map of satellite operations. As a testament to this, ABS, a global satellite operator, has extended its agreement for teleport services with Batelco. The agreement, signed in 2011, saw the two companies forming a strong alliance, with ABS gaining a full suite of telecom services provided by Batelco at its Teleport.

Batelco’s teleport boasts 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.

The 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 said that the extension of the partnership is a testament to the strong relationship between Batelco and ABS.

“This is a result of Batelco’s reliable connectivity and bespoke solutions that fully support ABS’ operations worldwide,” added Mr. Al-Daylami.

“We are extremely pleased to extend our partnership agreement with Batelco as we continue to build our operations in the Middle East and Africa regions,” said ABS Chief Technology Officer Ken Betaharon.

“The premises is one of the most impressive in the region and provides a high level of security and optimal operating conditions to ensure business continuity,” he added.
