The Onlime Teleport was built by Deutsche Telekom in 1987 and is one of the largest in Europe. Named first as the Central European Teleport then shortened to CET Teleport in 2008, it is the technical hub of the Onlime Group. The Teleport is home to more than 50 satellite antennas from 15m diameter downwards, sitting on 160 acres of land. Since 2009 it has under gone a major program of upgrade and refurbishment in every area of operation. The facility is now state-of-the-art and is delivering quality services across the globe, with line of sight to over 200 satellites between 76.5 degrees east and 55 degrees west, covering almost entirely the earth’s landmass.
When the Teleport was constructed it coincided with the build out of the German national fibre optic network and as a result the Teleport sits on the main north-south and east-west fibre optic backbone for the country. Since 2008, further redundant fibre links have been added to the Teleport including to BT Tower in London, a major hub for European broadcasters and to colocation and data centres in London, Frankfurt and Amsterdam.
Access to such extensive fibre networks enables the delivery of high quality MPLS services and managed DSL/Internet networks globally.
The Teleport houses extensive data equipment rooms and hosts a variety of customer equipment from full satellite gateways through iDirect® hubs to single modems, routers, servers and switches. The Teleport also provides web and mail hosting for customers all of which are under strict SLAs backed by our 24/7 NOC.
In 2011 we signed a 15-year contract with an international satellite operator to build the entire supporting infrastructure and host an 11m TT&C antenna and a 9m Gateway antenna and we are contracted to provide full operational support for their service over the life of the satellite. The Teleport hosts some 30 racks of RF and IT equipment for the operation, which is monitored on a 24/7 basis from our NOC. Our engineers are on constant standby to resolve any technical issues that arise within strict time limits. As an independent Teleport Operator we are keen to develop this aspect of our business and believe our strengths and the facilities at the Teleport are well suited to provide satellite operators with similar hosting services.
We can offer Teleport redundancy and will lease any of our available antennas on a long or short-term basis. We are continually adding to our range of antennas for both C-band and Ku-band and almost all of the existing antennas have undergone a major program of refurbishment.
Onlime is also open to working with satellite operators to uplink bandwidth for specific projects or to provide independent monitoring services.
At Onlime our solutions feature the latest modem technology. We provide an end-to-end fully Managed Service, which includes 24/7 monitoring, monthly reporting and Service Level Agreements guaranteeing the highest level of availability.
