Facilities Expanded by Santander Teleport

Santander Teleport is expanding its facilities as the company continues to grow their Teleport Operations and Technical Services business.

The company recently acquired 8,500 sqm (about 2.1 acres) of land, of which approximately half is being converted into an extension of the teleport's antenna field.

Civil works are well advanced for the new area which will initially accommodate four, new, 8 and 9 meter antennas in different frequency bands as well as a new shelter to host RF and baseband equipment. These new antennas are expected to become operational this summer. The new antenna farm will also accommodate third-party antennas for hosting contracts.

Additionally, construction works in the main office building are well advanced and include: a complete revamp of the office space and Network Operations Centre facilities, a larger and newly refurbished social area, and a new state-of-the-art technical lab and training room. Earlier this year, Santander Teleport appeared in the first position of The Fast 20 Teleport Operators ranking release by the World Teleport Association.
