Batelco, the leading telecom services operator in Bahrain, said it has obtained a key certification from Eutelsat as its approved teleport operator.

As region’s prime teleport services provider, Batelco continues to provide world-class teleport services to satellite and VSAT operators, with the company’s fully equipped teleport placing Bahrain on the global map of satellite operations, it stated.

With this new certification, the company is now listed as an approved teleport operator to provide services to customers of Eutelsat.

Eutelsat’s customers in return can benefit and make use of Batelco’s teleport facilities in Bahrain which provides seamless integration with national and international terrestrial and submarine networks and provides full support for satellite and VSAT operators to streamline their operations efficiently.

Batelco said it was awarded the certification after going through a comprehensive process, working closely with Eutelsat, to ensure the teleport meets the global standards of Eutelsat and is properly equipped to meet the global standards.

Batelco Bahrain CEO Muna Al Hashemi said that the new certification added further weight to Batelco’s global services portfolio.

Batelco chief global business officer Adel Al Daylami said that Batelco, as the Middle East’s prime teleport services provider, provides world-class teleport services to satellite operators.
