Middle East Connectivity

|

January 21, 2016

Leading broadcast connectivity expert NEP Connect (formerly known as SIS LIVE) has significantly increased its portfolio of connectivity resources by adding key satellite capacity in the Middle East, as part of its ever-expanding fibre and satellite network.

The company has permanently leased more capacity on Eutelsat E10A, which offers prime Ku-band and C-band connectivity.

Customers from the major events and news sectors can now use NEP Connect’s occasional use booking service to secure instant, robust capacity for their connectivity requirements.

NEP Connect has recently sold seven LoStow® vehicle mounted antenna, designed and manufactured in-house, into the MENA region. LoStow combines high quality engineering in a compact, lightweight, rapidly deployable and easy to use package which can be easily integrated into vehicle systems.

John Bozza, commercial director, NEP Connect, said: “NEP Connect offers market-leading products and connectivity services and we are delighted to be expanding our offering in the Middle East. The extra capacity offered by Eutelsat E10A gives NEP Connect an added competitive edge which, together with our 24/7 booking service and the expertise and robust infrastructure we are renowned for, makes us the ideal connectivity partner for both contracted and occasional use events.”

NEP Connect will attend the CABSAT exhibition in Dubai from 8th – 10th March. CABSAT is the Middle East, South Asia and Africa’s biggest cable, satellite, broadcast and communications event.
