Yahsat & Talia sign long-term, multimillion-dollar partnership agreement

Posted 23 November 2016 · Add Comment

Yahsat, the UAE-based satellite operator has announced the start of a strategic partnership with Talia, a market-leading teleport, satellite, and terrestrial network operator.

Under the agreement, Talia is committed to capacity on Yahsat’s upcoming Ka-band Al Yah 3 satellite, located at 20°W to be launched in 2017, alongside existing services on the Y1B satellite.

This arrangement will provide Talia’s customers in the Middle East and Africa with a tightly integrated offering and a tailor-made solution to fit the changing demands of their customers.

Talia has also signed its first customer on Yahsat’s Y1B satellite. The NGO customer will be utilising the high bandwidth service with Newtec MDM6000 Satellite IP Modems and integrating the additional capacity into their hybrid network. This includes coverage across multiple satellites and terrestrial fibre - all provided by Talia.

The addition of Ka-band HTS satellite services to Talia's portfolio re-affirms Talia as a market-leading company providing hybrid solutions, using appropriate technology driven by customer demand.

Alan Afrasiab, Talia President, said: “The addition of Yahsat to our coverage builds on our strong and growing relationship with satellite operators. This further extends our infrastructure and network operations, enabling the delivery of protected and secure communications to our strategic customers.”

Farhad Khan, Yahsat’s chief commercial officer said, "We are delighted to be partnering with Talia as a long-term client. This agreement is yet another example of Yahsat’s growth strategy, which will be further enabled by the launch of our third satellite, adding 20 new markets to our existing footprint. We are thrilled Talia believes in our cutting edge technology solutions, team’s capabilities and our commitment to the delivery of customised, bespoke services.”

As part of the agreement Talia will have access to Yahsat’s latest VNO services powered by its satellite broadband service, YahClick from the Y1B satellite. Commenting on this, Khan added, “Having full control and management over their own capacity, delivers flexibility while providing them with high-speed and economical Ka-band capacity. In addition, Talia will be supported by our high-level technical team to offer far-reaching broadband coverage across the Middle East and Africa.”
