Once in orbit, the AMOS-5 satellite will feature a fixed pan-African C-band beam and three steerable Ku-band beams — all covering Africa with connectivity to Europe and the Middle East and supporting multiple transponders in both C-band and Ku-band.
The AMOS-5 satellite will offer Spacecom customers a wide range of satellite services, including:
- Direct-to-home (DTH) broadcasting
- VSAT communications and broadband Internet
- Telephony services
- Data trunking
- Cellular backhaul
- Video distribution
Together with the AMOS-2 and the AMOS-3 satellites co-located at Spacecom’s 4°W orbital “hot spot,” the AMOS-5 satellite will give customers coverage over many of the world’s fastest growing and highest-demand satellite markets in the Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Africa.
