TP together with VertexRSI and Radyne Commstream bid and was awarded the ArabSat Standard B Earth Station project. The earth station was damaged in the war and is part of the Iraq reconstruction program.
The ArabSat consortium provides voice communications between all member states. The project , based around an 11 meter Standard B dish antenna, provided ITPC with 40 E1 (2.048 Mbps, G.703) trunk circuits with at least one E1 circuit per member state.
The system utilizes compression techniques to convert the forty trunks circuits to ten bearer circuits. The bearer circuits are then connected to a microwave system for transmission from the customer demarcation location to the earth station location at a transmission frequency of 23 GHz. This project was handed over in August 2005.
