- Qatar Amateur Radio Society
With the launch of Es’hail-1 (2013) and Es’hail-2 (2018), we at Es’hailSat started providing much-needed facilities for the growing demand for broadcast services (particularly HD and Ultra HD TV) in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
Our satellites operate from the key orbital positions of 25.5°/26° East, covering the entire MENA region.
And our Broadcast Services now bring scalable technology platforms and solutions to the broadcast community through our state-of-the-art Teleport in Doha, Qatar. Supporting multi-channel operators as well as single-channel operators in the broadcast sector, We provide the following services through our Es’hailSat Teleport:
DTH / Broadcast Distribution
We at Es’hailSat provide a global communications network to our customers, broadcasting Audio and Visual content through the Teleport in Doha. Our satellites’ geostationary orbital positions of 25.5° / 26° East is the hotspot for Direct-to-Home (DTH) services in the MENA region, allowing viewers to receive a wide selection of local and international TV programs via a small, easily mounted satellite dish. Using high-powered Ku-band payloads, our satellites support applications such as Video over the MCPC platform, Pay TV, Video-on-demand, and Interactive TV in Standard-Definition (SD) and High-Definition (HD) qualities.
Broadcast Contribution Services
Communications links are a vital part of any broadcast network, from gathering news and events to distributing the final content. Our satellite technology provides reliable and secure transmission links to our customers. Our satellite network also provides flexible contribution services, with the flexibility of providing them either full-time or on occasional use basis wherever and whenever they are needed, no matter how remote the location. And with more global events being covered in HD and in UHD, our satellites use high-powered Ku-band payloads and offer extra capacity with speed and ease. This is invaluable to our customers for activities such as:
● Backhauling material from studios for redistribution.
● Gathering news from multiple areas to studios or broadcasting centers.
● Satellite transmission from outside broadcasts.
● Overcoming connectivity gaps in remote or rural areas.
In addition, we have cost-effective solutions as our teleport is well equipped to receive and transmit video and audio content using various transmission protocols over the internet when the satellites are not required or necessary. Our IP contribution hub can support 100’s of channels and video sources seamlessly and simultaneously.
Leveraging our new high-tech teleport and established partnerships within the region, Es’hailSat provides complete end-to-end playout solutions including video playout, compression, encryption, uplink and distribution services. We offer a wide range of playout services catering from basic standalone playout to a complete playout system equipped with storage, media asset management, secondary event and capable of handling multiple playouts. All the broadcasting services that Es’hailSat provides are supported by our dedicated Broadcast Center located at our Teleport, which is available 24x7 throughout the year to assist our customers with any technical inquiry.

Es’hailSat’s iPOST service provides customers with flexible bandwidth for internet connectivity by linking remote sites to a multi-homed internet backbone. Through iPOST, Es’hailSat is able to offer a scalable solution tailored to the customer’s bandwidth requirements to meet current and future demands.
For government users, Es’hail-1 enables mission-critical communications that can be established quickly and securely.
Es’hail-1 carries a multi-transponder Ka-band mission dedicated to these users with coverage across the whole MENA region.
This makes it possible to establish secure and dedicated telecommunication services including:
- Broadband internet access,
- Corporate networks, and
- Similar services using small fixed or mobile antennas.
As continuity of services and expansion are important for business communications, Es’hail-1 will soon be followed by Es’hail-2, bringing additional capacity to support the expansion of services at the 25.5°/26° East orbital position.
Es’hail-2 will also provide greater capability for anti-jamming protection as well as redundancy and back-up for Es’hail-1.
Es’hailSat’s world-class Teleport built on the outskirts of Doha, Qatar, provides hosting services with a Tier 3 infrastructure.
The new Es'hailSat state-of-the-art Teleport of the massive 50,000 sqm built in Doha provides a range of teleport services including back-up studios for TV channels and disaster recovery.
Es’hailSat has a large antenna farm that can host an extensive number of antennas of various sizes. Adequate space has been allocated for the expansion of the antenna farm if needed in the future.

Qatar Amateur Radio Society
In order to promote and foster space technology development in Qatar, Es’hailSat has initiated the development of new technology for the Qatar Amateur Radio Society.
With the provision of two transponders on the Es’hail-2 satellite for an Amateur Satellite Radio payload, this ground-breaking project is expected to provide an exciting new phase of activity for radio amateurs in the 21st century.
Es’hail-2 will provide the first Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT) geostationary communication capability that connects users across the visible globe in one single hop and in real-time. It will also allow the AMSAT community to validate and demonstrate their DVB standard.
