Lurín Teleport

Media Networks Latin América (MNLA)


Design, supply, installation, commissioning and integration of most of the transmitting and receiving antennas of MNLA’s main Teleport in Lurín, Peru.

Lurín Teleport, located 40 kilometres from Lima, is one of the largest and most important in Latin America. This ground station, inaugurated in the late 1960s, has been operated by Media Networks since 2006, and from there private brand TV, DTH, OTT and IPTV services are managed for more than 750 television channels.

To carry out this Media Networks technological challenge, a Telefónica Group subsidiary based in Peru, these projects were relied on the experience of Telefónica Servicios Audiovisuales‘ engineering department.

The Spanish company was responsible for the integration of a total of 14 transmitter/receiver antennas with sizes ranging from 4.5 to 9 metres, and all the work inherent to the installation of the complex: civil works, ducting and cabling, power supply, motorisation, amplification systems and modulation.

Additionally, TSA implemented the alarm management system to monitor the equipment associated with the antennas, almost all of them equipped with redundant HPA amplifiers in a 2+1 configuration, in addition to implementing the Carrier Control management system.

Lurín Ground Station joins other similar projects developed by Telefónica Servicios Audiovisuales in other locations in the American continent: in the USA and Chile.
