AMOS-17 satellite Ku-band Ku-1 beam footprints over Africa - for televiison broadcasting and distribution, for data, internet and networks

AMOS-17 satellite Ku-band Ku-1 beam footprints over Africa - for televiison broadcasting and distribution, for data, internet and networks

With two high-power footprints , AMOS-17 Ku-band beams serve broadcast, data and telecom markets for SOHOs, SMEs and consumers in Africa and across the northern region of the Indian Ocean.


17 degrees east is a leading broadcast position for central and western Africa, with AMOS-17 Ku-1 beam providing extensive coverage stretching from south DRC to north of Senegal, with many TV platforms.


AMOS-17 Ku-2 beam provides excellent peroformance for maritime applications.


Simplification of the broadcasting chain is key to our customers, and AMOS-17 offers a unique benefit of using one Uplink to broadcast to both beams simultaneously.
