9° EAST SATELLITES

The 9° East orbital location is home to two powerful satellites optimized for broadcast and broadband services.

Our EUTELSAT 9B satellite is at the heart of a fast-growing DTH neighbourhood and cable hotspot, with over 400 TV channels, 150 in HD. EUTELSAT 9B provides satellite coverage across Europe for TV channels and platforms through an extensive, widebeam coverage. Five regionally centred high-power footprints efficiently address linguistic markets.

For broadband services, the KA-SAT satellite is a powerful platform delivering high-bandwidth services to users beyond range of terrestrial networks, with speeds of up to 50 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload. KA-SAT also enables cost effective SNG, regional and local TV and corporate TV networks.

EUTELSAT 9B

CONSTRUCTOR: Airbus Defence & Space

LAUNCHER: Proton

EUTELSAT 9B significantly expands and diversifies resources at our 9° East location for high-growth video markets across Europe. Capacity is spread across five footprints, with frequency reuse significantly increasing overall bandwidth.

A pan-European footprint delivers a wide coverage for channels seeking maximum reach into satellite homes and to terrestrial head-ends, providing connectivity to cable networks across the whole of Europe. Five regional footprints address high-growth digital TV markets in Germany, Greece, Italy, and the Nordics with the Baltics and Ukraine.

Pay-TV platforms and national DTT programmes appreciate this regional footprint model which enables them to efficiently address linguistic markets, while in parallel, leverage reception from the HOTBIRD neighbourhood with off-the-shelf dual-feed dishes.

KA-SAT

LAUNCHED: 26/12/2010

CONSTRUCTOR: EADS Astrium

LAUNCHER: Proton Breeze M

KA-SAT is a powerful platform delivering high-bandwidth services to users beyond the range of terrestrial networks. Its revolutionary concept is based on a payload with 82 Ka-band spotbeams connected to a network of ten ground stations. This configuration enables frequencies to be reused, taking total throughput to beyond 90 Gbps and making it possible to deliver Internet connectivity to more than one million homes, at speeds comparable to ADSL.

The Konnect consumer broadband service operates via KA-SAT. Konnect provides an always-on service delivering speeds of up to 50 Mbps download and 6 Mbps upload, for users across Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. Professional requirements for higher volume and bandwidth are possible with speeds of up to 50Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload.

KA-SAT also enables cost effective SNG using lightweight, transportable uplink antennas, regional and local TV and corporate TV networks.
