Founded in 2004, ASIX has started its operation as a “Teleport Operator in Asia” in the year 2005 with only one 9.0M antennae on C band from a location called Chung Hom Kok near Stanley in Hong Kong Island. The journey started with a lot of struggle and investment to serve the South Asia, East Asia, Africa, Middle-East majorly for “Satellite IP Bandwidth Services.” As a Teleport Operator in Asia,” ASIX has provisioned a good number of big size antennae towards most of the hot-bird in Asia to get access to satellite content for IPTV providers. ASIX was majorly involve to offer the “Satellite IP Bandwidth Services” using C and Ku band from popular satellites like APSTAR, PanamSat, Intelsat, Agila2, Asiasat, Chinasat, JSCAT etc. By the year 2010, ASIX had to install close to 17 antennae’s in different sizes such as 4.5M, 6.2M, 7.3M, 9.0M and 11.0M on C and Ku band and become competitive “Teleport Operator in Asia.” From the very beginning, ASIX was very lucky to offer “Teleport Hosting Services” to the majority of satellite operators. The global and regional satellite operators such as Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS,) Apstar, JCSAT, Intelsat and SES starts hosting their operational antennae’s into ASIX teleport which was one of the major breakthrough ASIX has had between the year 2012 to 2017. At one point of time, ASIX could offer a wide spectrum of service as the “Teleport Operator in Asia” which includes Access to satellite content for IPTV providers, Antennae hosting for “Satellite IP Bandwidth Services”, Antennae hosting for satellite maneuver, MCPC uplink services, TV turn-around etc.
