Paris, France (SPX) Aug 08, 2023

AVS, a leading Brazilian service provider and integrator in the public and private sectors, has signed multiple contracts with Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) for capacity on its EUTELSAT 65 West A satellite.

This partnership has allowed AVS to deploy public channels such as TV ALEPR, TV ALESC, TV ALEPE and TV ALBA on the EUTELSAT 65 West A satellite, avoiding interference generated by the activation of 5G, underway in the country. Brazil is implementing 5G in the 3.5 GHz band, which is currently used to support satellite TV services in the C-band.

The planned C-band of EUTELSAT 65 West A is a single frequency band with a frequency range between 4 .5GHz to 4.8GHz, operating at 800MHz above the 5G operating frequencies in Brazil. Consequently, EUTELSAT 65 West A allows for cost-effective geographic expansion for broadcasters, as filters do not need to be installed to avoid 5G interference.

Commenting on contracts, Jose Ignacio Gonzalez-Nunez, Eutelsat Senior Regional VP, Media Sales Americas, said: "We are delighted to support this partnership with AVS through EUTELSAT 65 West A. Our 'Planned C Band' solution offers a transparent and cost-effective proposition for broadcasters forced to migrate their signals out of the lower end of the C-Band spectrum, while offering them unparalleled coverage of the Brazilian territory. We will continue this support aimed at increasing AVS's business"

Joao Paulo Erthal, Engineering Manager at AVS, said: "Today there is great interest in expanding the audience of public TVs, aiming to bring the content produced to the entire population and for that, we need to guarantee a very high quality of service for our customers. Pleased to have EUTELSAT as one of our main partners to achieve this goal".
