From now on we provide an additional upgrade for all of our dedicated servers and colocation solutions at our data center in Nuremberg: The satellite feed.
If you select this feature, you will be able to receive feeds of two satellites (in HD) on your server: Astra 19.2°E and Eutelsat Hot Bird 13.0°E.
We use a separate network card to send the signal to your server via Ethernet, where you can then process it further. This means that your standard uplink is by no means restrained by the signal traffic, thus you may use it at the maximum speed.
In addition, you are free to switch between Astra and Hot Bird, however, you can not receive both signals at the same time. In order to do so you would have to purchase the upgrade twice.
Just like with a regular tuner, you can receive one channel at a time. You can switch between channels, of course. If you would like to receive more than one channel simultaneously, you can simply order this upgrade multiple times. For each upgrade, you will be able to receive one simultaneous channel. Should you have multiple upgrades of this type, you can receive channels of both Astra and Hot Bird at the same time, of course.
The price for the upgrade is set at only 39.99€/month, no setup fee is charged. All necessary hardware is provided by us and of course we also take care of the technical implementation.
Existing customers can order this upgrade as well as long as your server is located at our data center in Nuremberg. An order can be placed per e-mail. It never has been easier to use a satellite feed on your server!
