The company will discuss its accomplishments over the last 10 years at CABSAT.

The Space Agency of the Republic of Azerbaijan (Azercosmos) is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and will speak about a number of accomplishments and its vision for the future at CABSAT. More importantly, it is looking to extend its reach in MENA and sub-Saharan Africa to ensure better connectivity in the region.

As the first and only satellite operator in the South Caucasus region, the company has a rich service portfolio and offers reliable video, data and teleport services and solutions via its telecommunication satellites. Azercosmos offers C- and Ku-band coverage. As a government partner, it reportedly “guarantees secure transmission of video content to anyone living in Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Central and South Asia”.

“Our cost-efficient video services and solutions include video contribution, video distribution, occasional use and many more,” a statement said.

Through the provision of critical IT infrastructure, Azercosmos offers secure and reliable telecommunication and data services and solutions to enterprise and government customers for a comprehensive range of applications, including aviation, maritime, government and disaster recovery. It meets the growing global demand for bandwidth and ensures the provision of high-quality broadband, VSAT, IP trunking, mobile backhaul and other services.

The newly developed Azconnexus satellite internet service also offers better connectivity solutions for businesses located in remote areas. The highly specialised, agile and multilingual technical team’s assistance makes the experience with Azercosmos seamless and enjoyable.

With regard to teleport services, the company, together with its partner teleports, can deliver a broadcaster’s services to Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia over Ku-band, and Africa over C-band. Its WTA-certified (Tier 4) teleport solutions include broadcasting, communications, hosting and consultancy services.

With over 50 African and Middle Eastern countries covered, Azercosmos provides reliable video and data services, reaching millions of households in the region. We have been participating in CABSAT since 2014 and we continue to expand our client and partner base in the Middle East and Africa,” commented Mark Guthrie, CCO at Azercosmos.
