Arabsat is delighted to announce its partnership with Level421, headquartered in Germany. Level421 is one of the leading providers of satellite communication services for Africa, Middle East and Central Asia. As part of this cooperation Level421 has installed in Q4 2012 a new 6.5 m antenna pointing towards Arabsat-5C satellite @ 20°East, capeabe to handle also extended C-Band. This platform is LIVE, now full operative and first customers have set their carriers.

From its prime teleport location in Germany, level421 provides data services, based on brand new COMTECH 840 Advanced-V-SAT technology, operating high modulated up to 32 APSK on ultra efficient level with ACM capeabilities on UP- and DOWNSTREAM. Due to its teleport location in CENTRAL EUROPE and its possibility to inject data traffic directly into the Pan European Backbone with shortest possibility, the overall performance of Internet based Services, provided by level421, is very high.

The new platform allows Level421 and their existing and future customers to provide Ultra High Efficient services and coverage via Arabsat5c throughout Africa and Middle East, at Quality "MADE IN GERMANY"

"Arabsat-5C is one of the latest state-of-art satellites within the Arabsat fleet. The satellite offers a ubiquitous coverage over Middle East, Africa & Central Asia in C-band; which are also the prime service regions of Level421. Customers of Level421 and Arabsat will from now on be able to benefit from a high power, very reliable and cost-effective solution to serve their specific communication and distribution requirements, including and any kind of VSAT application. This partnership will certainly meet and match the high demand for reliable telecommunication services in Africa and Middle East.. The longstanding and robust on-the-ground experience of Level421 will help us to deliver the most convenient turnkey solutions and a solid foundation of any kind of similar payload in the future. ”, quoted by Khalid Balkheyour, President & CEO of Arabsat.

"The satellite bandwith market is changing quickly. With upcoming Ka Band, and a strong market concentration in low cost type iDirect type services, the capability to deliver real large trunks for Internet Backbone purpose is becoming more and more important. In fact Africas infrastructure develops quickly and not requires any more an antenna at each end user. 4G services are spreading fast, searching to satisfy their quickly growing bandwith demands via infrastructural satellite backbone links, ideally operated in rainstable C-Band. Arabsat5c belongs to the most powerful C-Band satellite over the African region and is a good choice, to "connect the unconnected" of this world, at reasonable costs." quote by Dipl.Ing.
