Telenor Satellite Broadcasting (TSBc) has installed a fully redundant SatLink Hub 9400 LE from STM Group to provide services with two forward links from a new location in Cyprus.
With its new hub, TSBc says that it will be able to offer expanded coverage of the Middle East region with quality-enhancing features from STM, such as Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), which intelligently adjusts modulation parameters to compensate for varying weather.

Other features attributed to the SatLink hub include support for up to 500 VSATs, increased bandwidth efficiency with Adaptive Carrier Selection (ACS), advanced MF-TDMA resource control, and bandwidth management tools to optimise resources in the network.
TSBc is building its offering of SatLink technology, with its teleport in Nittedal, Norway already providing services through another SatLink hub with three forward links. “TSBc appreciates the continuous advancements STM is making with its SatLink platform," said Jan Hetland, Director of Datacomms Systems at TSBc. “Our SatLink Hubs provide the flexibility and reliability that we need to remain attractive to our customers."
"STM is pleased to provide TSBc with the advanced technology available with SatLink Hubs," added Bjorn Platou, VP of European Operations at STM. "With features like ACM and ACS, TSBc will be offering high quality communications services to its customers."
