Yahlive, Alef partner with SVS on DTH platform

October 29, 2014

Yahlive, Alef Technology and SVS Satellite Systems announced their collaboration by which SVS will design and integrate a new DTH platform based in Kabul, Afghanistan. The DTH platform will be operated by Alef Technology and will consist of a BSS RF and baseband system, supporting the transmission of SD and HD television channels over the Yahsat 1A satellite. This strategic partnership is expected to support Alef Technology in delivering uplink services for channels exclusively to Yahlive and boost the DTH platform services available to Yahlive from Afghanistan. The platform is also capable of supporting multi-transponders with indoor rack-mounted electronics including SVS‘s own Dynamic NMS network monitor and control system.

Magnus Simons, Senior Director of Business Development at Yahlive, commented: “We are pleased to have found a collective uplink solution in Afghanistan, enabling better signal quality for the Afghani broadcasters, which previously used just a single carrier per channel (SCPC) to uplink their channels. The solution has been welcomed by our customers, which will not only provide the terrestrial stations with a strong signal but also provide an excellent signal to all households wanting to receive a great DTH offering.”
