Following the successful launch of HYLAS 2 satellite in August, Avanti and Cyta are pleased to announce that the HYLAS 2 Gateway at Makarios Teleport in Cyprus has become operational. The facility supports the satellite control and traffic requirements of HYLAS 2 that operates in Ka band and provides broadband services in Europe, Africa, the Caucuses and the Middle East. The Gateway combines state of the art hosting facilities with diverse international fibre connectivity.
David Bestwick, Technical Director of Avanti commented: « We are delighted that this critical element of our network is fully operational. HYLAS 2 will play an important role in the development of broadband connectivity in the Middle East and the Cyta gateway will also support our enterprise and government data services clients across the region. »
«The operation of the HYLAS 2 Gateway in Cyprus is a key milestone for Cyta’s satellite services. It uses extensive resources and brings cutting edge technology to Makarios Teleport. More importantly, because of the wide bandwidth capabilities of HYLAS 2 in Ka band, the Gateway also requires international fiber connectivity at a large scale. The HYLAS 2 Gateway is a major step in Cyta’s efforts to strengthen its telecommunications node in the Eastern Mediterranean», says Yiannis Koulias, Cyta’s Director National and International Wholesale Market.
