Spacecom’s AMOS-4 satellite has reached its 65° East orbital position and is due to start commercial operations early this month.
The communications satellite has Ku-band and Ka-band transponders and will service broadband and broadcast providers throughout Russia, China, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East.
AMOS-4 will provide traditional and next-generation broadcast, emerging interactive, mobile and broadband reach for satellite services, including DTH, video distribution, VSAT communications and broadband internet, according to Spacecom.
“With AMOS-4 in position over Asia our business programme in the region is progressing more quickly. The satellite will bring the AMOS brand’s tradition of providing top quality solutions to these new markets. We are expanding our presence and extending our reach in becoming a global satellite operator,” said Spacecom CEO and president, David Pollack.
