European satellite operator Eutelsat has opened a new teleport facility in southern Italy to strengthen its services for clients in the Middle East and Africa, the company has announced.
The new teleport in Cagliari will provide enterprise and maritime services as well as what it describes as “value-added” broadcast services.
“In parallel to the on-going expansion of our satellite fleet and the extension of its geographic reach, Eutelsat has actively pursued the development of on-ground infrastructure that optimises the potential of our in-orbit resources,” said Michel de Rosen, CEO, Eutelsat.
“The Cagliari teleport adds a new element to this ambition, sharpening our response to dynamic markets across Africa and the Middle East,” he added.
Eutelsat is already in the Middle East through a number of partners including Nilesat and Noorsat.
