News 5 October, 2023


Telefónica Tech Corporate Security team visited TSA Teleport facilities, one of Telefónica’s emblematic centres. A visit in which they were able to learn about our satellite television solutions, vSat and the recently integrated Starlink technology.

On 28th of September, as part of Telefonica Tech programme of visits to emblematic centres, we had the pleasure of welcoming the Corporate Security team, led by Carlos Olea, to our Teleport.

A visit in which a total of 16 people participated, hosted by our colleagues Jorge Acebes, Antonio Ruiz and Sergio Sánchez.

The day began with an introduction to the history of the building and our organisation, followed by an interesting tour throughout the facilities of Guadalajara Communications Centre. During the tour, the participants were able to enjoy a complete explanation of the services offered, the operation of the Satellite Control Centre (SCC) and the equipment housed in the Data Processing Centre DPC , as well as visiting the immense field of antennas and the Energy Building, where they could see the new UPSs and generators.

Telefónica Tech team was pleasantly surprised by the solutions offered by TSA’s Earth Station, which provides satellite television services, satellite internet (vSat) and satellite solutions using the latest Starlink technology.

Starlink, owned by Elon Musk’s SpaceX, has pioneered the deployment of a network of low-Earth orbiting satellites – at an approximate altitude of 550 km – to provide a broadband Internet service with global coverage, creating a constantly growing constellation that currently numbers more than 4,500.

Thanks to this technology, TSA can now offer its corporate customers Internet access of up to 320 Mbps down and 40 Mbps up, with a minimum latency of 25 ms; a negligible value compared to the 650 ms of typical solutions based on geostationary satellites.
