March 24, 2009 - PRLog -- Gaithersburg, MD, USA – UltiSat, Inc., a leading provider of global satellite communication infrastructure and services, announced its purchase of the mobile and fixed satellite assets of TDC (NASDAQ OMX: TDC), headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. UltiSat is a privately held satellite service provider and systems integrator based in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

The acquisition of TDC’s satellite assets includes the teleport infrastructure at the Blaavand earth station in Western Denmark along with customer contracts spanning C- and Ku-band fixed satellite services (FSS) and Inmarsat and Iridium mobile satellite services (MSS).

Abutaleb, Chief Executive Officer of UltiSat. “UltiSat already provides seamless networking to our customers in more than 120 countries and the Blaavand teleport will further expand our global reach and enhance our ability to provide highly reliable, customized solutions to remote and hard-to-reach locations on any continent.”

"Satellite communication is a very specialized service and UltiSat’s focus and expertise in this area will ensure that TDC’s satellite business will flourish,” said Carsten Dilling, Chief Operating Officer of TDC.
