Using a variety of antennas from 3.7m to 18m in size, Castor Networks offers up- and downlink services allowing customers to use our strategically located Teleport facilities, terrestrial backbone network, fiber based Internet connectivity with the Amsterdam Internet Exchange and support services without the required investments and costs to set-up and maintain such an infrastructure.We provide uplink service of TV bouquets for Direct-to-Home distribution via satellite and Broadcasters use Uplink and Turnaround services to transmit programming to a satellite, from which the programming is distributed either to a professional head-end (cable head-end, FM transmitter, satellite television facility).
The unique geographical location of our two Teleports in The Netherlands combined with excellent fiber connectivity and access to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange, the largest Internet Hub outside the USA, allows us to transmit via satellite directly to the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
Optionally we provide encoding and multiplexing services as well as collocation services in our datacenters at our Teleports to host customer owned equipment with remote hands support.
