New ‘Gateway Earth Station’ in Turkey to manage Turkish internet traffic for HYLAS 2 satellite
Leading global telecoms operator, Profen, has announced the establishment of a Turkish Gateway Earth Station (GES) to manage internet traffic in Turkey. The GES – locally referred to as a ‘Teleport’ – will manage traffic for Avanti Communications’ HYLAS 2 satellite, which provides 100% coverage over Turkey. Avanti Communications is the only international Ka-band satellite operator to secure a GES inside Turkey.
The major infrastructure partnership guarantees data security within Turkey, providing secure, high-quality data connectivity for a captive government, enterprise and retail customer base. The GES will be owned and operated by Profen, in addition to retaining part ownership and operation of HYLAS 2 capacity and services in Turkey. Services will also be available to Avanti Communications’ Turkish customers.
We are pleased to be taking a significant lead in the telecommunications market with this move. Ka-band services have enormous potential in Turkey. Our operation of the GES will ensure provision of highly secure, quality data connectivity to government, enterprise and retail customers in Turkey.”
