MEASAT Global Berhad (“MGB”) was incorporated under the name of Malayan Tobacco Company Ltd. (“MTC”) on 28 September 1956 under Section 15(1) of the Malaysian Companies Ordinances, 1940 to 1946, with primary operations focused on the manufacture, importation and sale of tobacco products.
MTC disposed of its entire tobacco manufacturing business and its marketing and distribution operations on 2 November 1999. On 8 May 2002, following a reverse takeover exercise, MTC became an investment holding company upon the completion of the acquisition of MEASAT Satellite Systems Sdn. Bhd. (then known as Binariang Satellite Systems Sdn. Bhd.).
Subsequently, on 23 July 2003, MTC changed its name to MGB to reflect the core business of the Group as the owner of Malaysia ‘s sole licensed regional satellite system.
Quality Satellite Solutions from the Centre of Asia
Since 1996, MEASAT has been providing premium satellite solutions to customers across the Asia Pacific region, and now has a reach that covers over 150 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe, Middle East and Australia, representing 80% of the world’s population.
The MEASAT satellite fleet includes the state-of-the-art MEASAT-3, MEASAT-3a and MEASAT-3b satellites co-located at 91.5°E, supporting Asia’s premium DTH and video distribution neighbourhood; MEASAT-5 at 119.5°E serving the broadband needs in Malaysia; and, AFRICASAT-1a at 46.0°E.
The MEASAT fleet supports leading DTH platforms in Malaysia, Brunei, India and Indonesia, providing DTH multi-channel television services to over 20 million subscribers. The fleet is also used by many leading international channel operators to distribute television programming to pay television platforms, and by telecommunications operators to support remote connectivity, cellular backhaul, IP trunking and corporate VSAT networks.
In Africa, the AFRICASAT-1a satellite at 46.0°E provides satellite capacity across the African continent, with connectivity to Europe, the Middle East, Malaysia and Singapore. The satellite is able to provide a complete range of satellite solutions including VSAT services, disaster recovery, co-location, uplinking, broadband, IP termination services and HD/SD video playout solutions.
The MEASAT fleet will be further strengthened with the addition of MEASAT-3d at 91.5°E in 2021 which will enable 100% coverage for high speed consumer broadband across Malaysia households; serve the growth requirements of 4G & 5G mobile networks in Malaysia; increased distribution capacity for video across the Asia Pacific region; and provide in-orbit satellite redundancy.
Leveraging infrastructure at the MEASAT Teleport and Broadcast Centre, and working with a select group of world class partners, MEASAT also provides a complete range of broadcast and telecommunications solutions. The state-of-the-art teleport facility located just outside of Kuala Lumpur provides 24/7 monitoring and customer support for services including UHD/4K, HD and SD video play-out, video turnaround, co-location, uplinking, broadband and IP connectivity services.
