Media Broadcast Satellite (MBS), is exhibiting at this week’s Satellite 2018 event, taking place in Washington, D.C. This premier event for the global satellite industry is expected to attract over 14,500 communications professionals from all over the world and will expand their knowledge of satellite communications and space technology through discussions, conference sessions and on the exhibition floor.
During the event, MBS will give visitors the opportunity to come and discuss their ideas and requirements with its knowledgeable team and to learn more about its comprehensive industry experience and its extensive infrastructure. The 15,000,000 sq. ft. facility, located in Usingen, near Frankfurt, Germany, offers a complete range of teleport services on a global scale, in Ku, C, Ka and X-band with a great deal for room for growth.
“We are very excited to be exhibiting at Satellite 2018 and we are looking forward to meeting existing and new customers this week to see how we can best support them,” says Sven Sünberg, Managing Director, MBS. “We offer security, quality and trust: security on the physical and redundancy level, whether that is in terms of IP, RF or power; quality in terms of high availability, precision engineering support and an interference-free environment; and trust as we have 40 years of excellence in communications.”
As the trend towards data-centricity accelerates, this brings new challenges in terms of the provision of high-speed yet affordable connectivity that allows access to mobility services for maritime, aero and land mobile applications and for secure, mission-critical governmental communications. MBS' agility and status as an independent and technology agnostic teleport places it at the forefront of this changing market, enabling the delivery of agile services and pure connectivity and also fully managed, hybrid services that encompass different types of communications networks and fixed and mobile sites. MBS is also equipped to support increasing demand for cloud and data services out of its Data Centre in Usingen. MBS' technology infrastructure is enabling the transition to mobile networks that deliver the services so in demand today, whilst complying to regulations and standards. MBS is ISO 27001 certified and MAC 2 compliant and is able to support all requests, both governmental and commercial.
"We recognise that the industry is evolving and we want to spearhead this ongoing change through our flexible infrastructure,” says Sünberg. “We are seeing great developments in terms of new small satellite constellations that will enable the ubiquity of mobile data. As part of this evolution, we can offer critical interoperability in GEO, MEO and LEO and distribution across our global network.” Media Broadcast Satellite already hosts 135 active antennas and has large areas of land available with pre-built foundations. Customers can choose to co-locate their infrastructure or take infrastructure as a service and also have the option of a fully-managed service.
“Media Broadcast Satellite is home to a team of innovators that are constantly looking forward and this helps us to react rapidly to customer requirements,” says Sünberg. “As the satellite industry moves into a different era, our customers can be assured that we are prepared to meet their changing and very special requirements,” he concludes.
