Alcomsat-1 satellite: 33 transponders, including 9 for digital TV and radio broadcasting  

ALGIERS-The Alcomsat-1 satellite, launched into orbit by Chinese launcher Long March 3B, is equipped with 33 transponders, including 9 dedicated to the broadcasting of digital TV and radio, said the Algerian space agency (ASAL).

Designed part of a partnership with China, especially dedicated to telecommunications, television broadcasting and internet, the satellite has 33 transponders, 9 of which are intended for the broadcasting of digital television channels and radios, stated the source.

The satellite will allow the diffusion of internet on the KA band at a very high speed (20Mb/s), which covers the entire Algerian territory, and providing users in North Africa with medium speed internet (2Mb/s) via the Ku-band that will cover, in addition to Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania, Western Sahara, Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, Libya, Tunisia, northern Chad and North Sudan.

The Alcomsat 1 satellite, which also transmits on the L-band and covers a large part of the northern hemisphere of Earth, will allow optimizing the signal quality of geo-location satellites (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo) and reducing the risk of interference or deliberate deterioration of signals.
