Thaicom signed an agreement with a subsidiary of MEASAT Global Berhad (“MEASAT”) for the Malaysian payload of the Thaicom 4(IPSTAR) satellite.

According to the agreement, the MEASAT subsidiary will secure a major portion of the IPSTAR capacity over Malaysia allowing the MEASAT subsidiary to become the IPSTAR National Satellite Operator (“NSO”) with exclusive rights to provide bandwidth capacity and its related broadband services in Malaysia.

The total bandwidth capacity from the seven spot beams across the peninsula and East Malaysia on the Malaysian payload of the IPSTAR satellite is approximately 1,894MHz, capable of delivering 3.3 Gbps of IP connectivity. This amounts to seven percent of total bandwidth capacity of the Thaicom-4 (IPSTAR) satellite. The IPSTAR Malaysian payload will be marketed as MEASAT-5.

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