Paradigm Communication Systems Ltd has announced the completion of Sky News Arabia’s new state-of-the-art satellite earth station in Abu Dhabi. Designed and built by Paradigm, completion of this earth station means that Sky News Arabia is now ready to support satellite contribution and interchange of news over C, Ku and Ka-bands.
Paradigm reportedly provided a full turnkey system utilising the latest communication technologies. The delivery encompassed the network design and layout of the antenna farm, installation, testing and commissioning of a multitude of antennas systems from 1.5m through to fully motorized 4m tracking antennas, RF subsystems, as well as a fully managed extensive and flexible L-band routing infrastructure.
Designed from the outset to support the latest technological developments, Paradigm are reportedly confident that this new contribution centre will support the growth of Sky News Arabia in this exciting region.
“The primary requirement for the Sky News Arabia satellite system was flexibility. This multiband contribution hub was designed from the outset to support visibility of every suitable satellite in that region,” comments Ulf Sandberg, managing director – Paradigm. “Paradigm delivered a complete system including support for planned satellites for the next five years, the earth station is multi band compliant from the outset”.
