Our commercial teleport facilities enable us to provide global coverage for satellite connectivity services. The teleports provide the link between the satellite constellation and terrestrial networks for reliable end-to-end connectivity at the highest service levels.
COMSAT owns and operates two commercial teleport facilities in the United States. Our Southbury teleport is located on the east coast, about 60 miles north of New York City. Our Santa Paula teleport is located 90 miles north of Los Angeles on the west coast. Each teleport has operated continuously since 1976. Both facilities provide secure equipment collocation and uplink services for Inmarsat mobile satellite services and commercial 3rd party C- and Ku-band satellites. Our teleports are provisioned with fully redundant components and diverse terrestrial connectivity.
COMSAT’s wholly owned teleport facilities in the United States are strategically positioned to provide global, secure uplink and baseband co-location services to complement our space segment offerings.
