Northport Teleport Acquired by Talia Limited

Talia Limited, a leading communication provider serving the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the Americas, has acquired Northport, a licensed broadcast teleport operator in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

As Talia looks to continue expansion within the country and support of existing broadcast customers, the acquisition of Northport represents a commitment to the firm's ongoing presence within the region. With Talia’s strong technical team in Iraq and recent partnership with satellite operators, including the recent announcement with Arabsat to deliver both SD and HD channels to the region, Alan Afrasiab, CEO and President of Talia stated that continued growth and interest in the region for additional capacity within the broadcast sector means the company has been looking for an opportunity to open a bespoke and dedicated facility for some time. The acquisition of Northport will enable Talia to provide broadcast services to regional and international clients more efficiently and affordably by integrating into the company's global MPLS and satellite network.
