Satlynx signs capacity deal for Arabsat-5A

By Robert Briel | April 5, 2009

Satlynx, a provider of satellite telecommunications, has announced it has reached an agreement to buy capacity on the Arabsat-5A satellite, available for commercial service early in 2010. The satellite will deliver capacity over the entire Africa and Middle East (MEA) regions, as well as most of Central Asia.

The action aims to strengthen Satlynxs market position over these key regions, as an ongoing realisation of a long-term strategy to grow through geographical expansion.

Satlynx plans to offer a variety of satellite communications technologies including SCPC, iDirect and DVB-based.

Ronny Svang, President and CEO of Satlynx said in a statement, Despite the economic environment there is a great deal of inertia in the markets we serve and demand continues apace. It is crucial now more than ever that, as a major international value-added satellite services provider, and as part of the GE group, we secure critical space segment inventory that will enable us to execute on our aggressive geographic expansion growth strategy.

He concluded After an initial deployment of networks on Arabsats BADR-6 and BADR-4 throughout the Middle-East & North Africa (MENA) region, we are now comfortable enough to make a solid commitment in expanding our capability over the whole of Africa with Arabsat-5A to enhance our multiregional connectivity.

Khalid Balkheyour, President & CEO of Arabsat, declared We are very pleased to continue to build a strong relationship with a serious and reputable service provider like General Electrics Satlynx. Their trust in our forthcoming pan-African Arabsat-5A satellite, soon-to-be the best available option on the market, will guarantee reliable service delivery capability for their customers over the entire African continent.

Satlynx said it is already actively working with customers today to scope, design and begin the build phase of projects across the MEA region in advance of the launch of the satellite.
