KUALA LUMPUR, May 30 (Bernama) -- MEASAT Global Bhd Monday signed a 10-year deal with Thailand's sole private satellite operator, Thaicom Public Company Ltd, to provide bandwidth capacity and its related broadband services in Malaysia, to be called MEASAT 5.

Thaicom, the operator of the Thaicom-4 (IPSTAR) satellite fleet, announced that the agreement was signed with a subsidiary of MEASAT.

Sources said the 10-year agreement will begin this year, however, the name of MEASAT subsidiary that sealed the deal was not disclosed.

It is believed the subsidiary could be a new unit yet to be established and will be announced later.

Commenting on the deal, MEASAT Global Chairman Datuk Umar Abu said the MEASAT-5 initiative was in line with the satellite communication service supplier's mission to being the satellite operator of choice for the Malaysian Information and Communication Technology industry.

"Our partnership with THAICOM on this project will allow MEASAT to expand its support to local telecommunication companies in providing connectivity to all areas of Malaysia in line with the National Broadband Initiative project," he was quoted as saying in a statement released by Thaicom in Nonthaburi, north-west Bangkok.

It said the MEASAT subsidiary would secure a major portion of IPSTAR capacity over Malaysia allowing the MEASAT unit to become the IPSTAR National Satellite Operator with exclusive rights to provide bandwidth capacity and its related broadband services in Malaysia.

The total bandwidth capacity from the seven spot beams across Peninsula and East Malaysia on the Malaysian payload of the IPSTAR satellite is approximately 1,894MHz, capable of delivering 3.3 Gigabits-per-second of Internet Protocol connectivity.

"This amounts to seven per cent of total bandwidth capacity of IPSTAR satellite. The Malaysian payload will be marketed as MEASAT-5," it added.

In addition, MEASAT Satellite Systems Sdn Bhd will secure the existing IPSTAR gateway equipment which will be moved to the MEASAT Teleport and Broadcast Centre in Cyberjaya.

MEASAT plans to provide the bandwidth capacity on MEASAT-5 to existing and new telecommunication operators and service providers across the country for mobile backhaul services and to support government initiatives including the Universal Service Provisioning to areas with little or no terrestrial connectivity.

Both MEASAT and THAICOM have ensured continuity of service for existing IPSTAR customers in Malaysia.

The IPSTAR broadband satellite is one of the largest communication satellite ever launched, delivering broadband services to millions of users to over 14 countries in Asia-Pacific, with a bandwidth capacity of more than 45 Gbps.

It currently provides full nationwide broadband satellite services in 13 countries with 17 gateways in Australia, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, The Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
