TDF Relies on POST Telecom for Comprehensive Broadcast Services

For a Redundant Satellite Uplink that is Cost-Effective and 99.95% Available

Télédiffusion de France (TDF) is one of Europe’s premier operators of terrestrial and satellite broadcasting networks. A visionary company using leading-edge technologies, TDF developed a multi-format and multi-support terrestrial platform for managing and distributing audio, video and data content to all types of receivers. Holding the contract for the transmission of many French radio channels to FM receivers throughout France, TDF took steps to ensure service would be available to all customers at all times.

“Our two companies have an excellent partnership and have achieved perfect synchronization of the two systems.”

Guillaume Rincé, TDF Deputy CTO

TDF delivers content from its own land transmission network and satellite uplink facility in Nantes. To ensure non-stop availability of service, TDF required a redundant DVBS2 channel to the satellite Eutelsat 5WA (AB3).

“TDF turned to POST Telecom to provide this critical redundant satellite uplink because our high quality service is also very complete and cost-effective.”
