SATELLITE OVERVIEW

ABS-4, an SS/L FS1300 satellite, is equipped with S-band and Ku-band coverage over the MENA region. It is a geostationary mobile multimedia satellite that provides direct broadcast of digital audio and video content to mobile users via two high-powered cross polarized Ku/S-band beams: West Beam and East Beam.

ABS-4 is also capable of distributing the digital data content to terrestrial repeater networks within the beam via two Ku/Ku-band beams.
