RRsat Global Communications Network

Backup & disaster recovery

With over 160 satellite dishes in 6 teleports and over 20 partner teleports plus an extensive global fiber network that is connected to RRsat’s advanced playout centers, RRsat provides the backup and disaster recovery services that allow TV channels, multi-channel platform operators and even satellite operators to stay on air during disruptions in playout, distribution or operations.

Until service is restored at our customer’s primary or secondary facilities, RRsat originates broadcasts, plays out material, inserts local advertising, distributes content over the same or other satellites and supports the customer’s operations, so that programming remains continuous and RRsat’s customers enjoy uninterrupted advertising and subscription revenues.

RRsat can monitor ongoing functionality and provide automatic synchronization or switching solutions that are tailored to each customer’s needs.

RRsat meets our customers’ backup and disaster recovery requirements for playout, distribution and operations by providing:

  • Content preservation at our facility
  • Downlink and turnaround uplinks to the same or substitute satellites
  • Fiber and IP connectivity as backup of existing connectivity or as potential workaround solutions
  • Full or partial playout including scheduled multi-language program substitution, local advertising and promotion insertion and regionalization
  • Hosting equipment with remote access maintained and monitored by our expert staff
  • Remote and mirror earth station for telemetry monitoring, tracking, and commanding (TT&C) and In-Orbit Testing (IOT) operations



We have selected RRsat after carefully evaluating all their capabilities, including their teleport services, fiber network, master control room (MCR), engineering team and coordination/booking skills. Our recent visit to RRsat's new state of the art teleport in Israel, established our confidence that we have a partner that can address our needs for the long term.
