AsiaSat’s teleport services from our Tai Po Earth Station in Hong Kong act as gateways between AsiaSat satellites and our customers’ ground networks and user terminals.
Our world-class teleport facility includes 18 C, Ku and Ka-band antennas not only for performing Telemetry, Tracking and Control (TT&C) activities of AsiaSat’s satellite fleet, but also for supporting a wide range of value added services to video and data customers, including signal downlink, turnaround and uplink, fibre connectivity, transmission platforms and related services.

AsiaSat’s teleport also serves as connectivity hub, providing links with both major local service providers including PCCW, HGC, WTT, HKBN and Towngas Telecom, as well as to overseas countries via fibre with international carriers such as BT, Tata Communications, PCCW Global and Telstra.
Other value-added service including equipment hosting, playout services are also available for customers to enjoy one-stop, end-to-end managed service, as well as disaster recovery services to meet customers’ emergency and ad hoc requirements.
