Piura TELEPORT Media Networks Latin America (MNLA)

Media Networks Latin America


The design, supply, installation, integration and the commissioning of a new teleport for MNLA in Piura that would serve as a backup of its main teleport in Lurín, carried out mostly by TSA.

MNLA designed a strategic plan for the back-up of the TV services, in case of an earthquake or any other emergency that could take place at the Lurín Teleport. Therefore, Telefonica Servicios Audiovisuales designed, supplied, installed, launched and integrated four transmitting and receiving antennas of MNLA back-up Teleport that it had in Lima, Peru.

The Piura Teleport, located on the outskirts of the northern city of Piura, takes part in Telefónica Group facilities where, historically, cable and telephone services have been provided. From this earth station, DTH services were managed in the white-label modality for TV channels.

In order to carry out this technological challenge for Media Networks, a subsidiary of the Telefónica Group based in Peru, they counted with the experience of the engineering team of ​​Telefónica Servicios Audiovisuales.

The Spanish Company worked on the integration of 4 transmitting/receiving antennas of 9 meters in size, and on all the works inherent to their installation: civil work, channeling and wiring, power supply, motorization, and auxiliary equipment.

Additionally, TSA turned on redundant HPAs amplifiers in a 1+1 configuration.

Piura earth station is added to other similar projects carried out by Telefónica Servicios Audiovisuales in different points of the American continent: USA and Chile.
