As part of the ongoing refurbishment program at the Teleport, Onlime is now in a position to offer a full range of broadcast services. Situated in northern Germany between Dortmund and Hannover, the teleport can access a wide range of Atlantic, European and Asian broadcast satellites.

Onlime offers a comprehensive and fully flexible range of enterprise quality communications services and understands your critical need for reliable connectivity. We monitor, control and support 24 hours a day.

Ku and C-band transmission is offered on both Onlime’s permanently leased capacity and to other capacity within the footprint. Permanent service antennas are equipped with de-icing, step tracking and auto power balancing facilities – all the resources that would be expected in a major teleport. Cross-site connection is by fibre.

The teleport is well served by redundant external fibre connectivity and in addition to permanent circuits to Onlime POPs in London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and West Africa, Tier 1 Internet access is also available, as is direct connectivity from the London POP to the Broadcasters Switch at BT Tower. Onlime can additionally offer MPLS connectivity using either IP or ASI interfacing as required.

Onlime have been providing services to a number of major international broadcasters. We are currently supplying solutions to African broadcasters on the new AFRICASAT-1a satellite which is particularly suited for cost effective contribution services.

The Onlime broadcast portfolio of services covers;

  • SDI MPEG DVB Uplinks
  • SDI MPEG DVB Downlinks
  • ASI or SDI Turn Rounds from C-band to Ku-band/C-band to C-band/Ku-band to C-band and Ku-band to Ku-band
  • Signal collection from our POPs or the BT Tower, CBR fibre transmission to Onlime Teleport and routing to an appropriate uplink
  • Routing from an appropriate downlink via CBR fibre to a POP or BT Tower
  • MUX access for DTH services
  • Radio downlinking and internet contribution using static IP addressing
  • Managed PlayOut
  • Service Monitoring
  • Supply of Space Segment

Broadcast services can be supplied on a permanent or occasional use basis. Onlime has partnerships worldwide with Outside Broadcast and SNG Operators enabling total connectivity wherever the location. As a leading VoIP and remote Internet provider Onlime has in-house resources to supply these facilities to OB locations. This can be achieved either by utilising an SCPC carrier on an existing communications link, or by separate VSAT link.

Onlime is well equipped to provide IPTV streaming contribution services which, given the rise in content viewing on mobile devices, is seen as an expanding role in traditional teleport activity.

Currently downlinking and streaming using Adobe FMS 3.2 is available using in-house resources and content can be web published by an Onlime associate company if required.

Onlime hosts a multilingual 24/7 NOC and Space Segment Bookings operation at the Teleport, which greatly facilitates communications between staff and clients.

The Onlime IT Department is available to manage all IP based requirements.

Clients requiring space segment are additionally offered the option to use the link on the Onlime web site to the Satellite Exchange service.

Finally, Onlime offers hosting facilities at the teleport where rack space is available in a secure and air-conditioned equipment room with UPS protection. Full remote access can be supplied for control and monitoring via fixed IP addressing.
