The station consists of a 5.5m S/X-Band antenna system and a network infrastructure, as well as IP connection to two backbone optical lines.
Azercosmos CEO and Chairman Rashad Nabiyev said, “We feel very happy about having a Japanese space communications infrastructure company Infostellar among our partners.
