The Satellite Mediaport Services, Ltd. (SMS) Teleport is located in Rugby, UK. is a showcase gateway teleport from Europe for satellite delivered communications to Africa.
The Rugby Teleport was originally built in late 1998 on the site of a Cold War era nuclear bomb shelter. No expense was spared to construct the finest facility of its kind at the time. Careful consideration was given to antenna placement, control center facilities, operations space and offices, all enclosed in a beautifully landscaped, country-like compound including made-man duck pond.
In 2006, the complex was acquired by an international group of satellite communications professionals dedicated to completely refurbishing and upgrading the teleport in order to meet the needs of its customers today and in the future.
For SMS, that future lies in making Rugby the premier European satellite teleport gateway to Africa. With the addition of new, dedicated satellite antennas, augmented RF transmission capacity, multiple communications platforms and expansive direct connectivity to the Internet backbone, SMS is gearing up to provide the most complete satellite communications infrastructure for Sub-Sahara African service providers on the upcoming T11-N and W2a satellites.
The Earth Station has over de 60 antennas from VertexRSI and Andrew – ASI Signal installed to provide a clear, extensive, and uninterrupted line of sight to over 120 different satellites from 65° East to 65° West.
