Organization Structure

Network System

Satellite Telecommunication System

CAT provides different kinds of satellite telecommunication services throughout Thailand as well as in other countries all over the world, such as the satellite television broadcasting service, the high speed circuit service, and international call service.  At the present time, CAT is capable of providing satellite telecommunication services either domestically or internationally, such as THAICOM, ABS, ASIASAT, MEASAT, VIANASAT, PALAPA, AGILA, INTELSAT, and NSS.


In addition, CAT also provides mobile satellite broadcasting services. These enable the live-broadcasting for international sport events, such as SEA GAMES, golf, football and other sport events requested by customers; international conference broadcasting services, such as ASEAN conference, broadcasting news of various leaders of other nations visiting Thailand; broadcasting news for foreign news agencies- CNN, NHK, Asia works; as well as communication for helping people in the areas experiencing different disasters.
Satellite Stations

CAT has 3 satellite telecommunication stations for providing services both domestically and internally, to include:

Sri Racha Satellite Station: The Sri Racha Satellite Station is located at Tung Sukla Sub-District, Sri Racha District, Chon Buri Province. This is the first satellite station of Thailand. It started providing international telecommunication services in 1968.

Nonthaburi Satellite Station: Nonthaburi Satellite Station is located at Muang District, Nonthaburi Province.   It started providing international telecommunication services in 1998. This station has been guaranteed in accordance with the ISO 9001 standard certification for satellite television broadcasting and high speed data transmission service.
         
Sirinthorn Satellite Station: Sirinthorn Satellite Station is located at Sirinthorn District, Ubon Rachathanee Province. It was established to enhance the capability and the readiness of Thailand in order to be a telecommunication hub in Southeast Asia. This station started providing international telecommunication services in 2000.

Communication System via Land Signal Transmission System

Nowadays, CAT has the land optical fiber signal transmission network for connecting domestic signal transmission networks and for data transmission service stations/internet.  The entire distance is approximately 32,000 kilometers covering both the central area and the provincial areas throughout the country, including district areas and some sub-district areas.  Moreover, it connects our neighboring countries: Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Malaysia for serving the AEC.

With the Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing – DWDM technology, which can now transmit signal with the speed of over 100 Gbbs, and the ASON technology, which can cope with the multi-failure occurred to the implements and the cables, they will enable the land optical fiber   signal transmission network to serve the DWDM work.  They also have high reliability and can provide various classes of services to meet with the requirements of different customers. Besides, the Next Generation Synchronous Digital Hierarchy – SDH technology which is used to provide the DWDM Leased Circuit; and the Ethernet Circuit, are capable of providing services to the high band width with high stability and efficiency.  Now, the DWDM system is the main basic system for providing different CAT services, to include the telephone service, the MY mobile telephone service, the data transmission service, and the internet service.

Communication System via Submarine Optical Fiber Cable
CAT has invested in constructing different submarine optical fiber cable systems both domestically and internationally for serving the overall telecommunication items, for acting as the international Gateway for international communication, and for serving as the main as well as the reserved telecommunication systems along with the satellite communication.
