GDS expands VectaStar network in Lebanon

Lebanon’s largest private data carrier GlobalCom Data Services (GDS) is doubling the size of its VectaStar network to serve the growing demand for high speed corporate network services.


GDS initially deployed VectaStar equipment provided by Cambridge Broadband Networks (CBNL) in 2008, with the aim of providing enterprise customers with high capacity Ethernet LAN connections and fast internet access services.

The latest installations will be deployed to meet the growing demand on GDS’s corporate network services and will see their VectaStar network coverage expand to serve 500 customer sites across Beirut and other regions in Lebanon.  VectaStar will continue to operate in the 26Ghz frequency band.

“Our network continues to grow quickly and we are committed to meet our customers’ needs with maximum speed and with the very highest quality of service,” said Dr Habib Torbey, President of GDS. “The scalability and ease of deployment of VectaStar enables us to rapidly respond to our customer demands and quickly roll out high capacity corporate network services.”

By creating a sector of multipoint coverage, VectaStar is able to backhaul multiple customer sites from a single hub site. The flexible quality of service (QOS) capabilities allow operators to define tiered service offerings (including dedicated bandwidth to selected customer sites) and reliably provide those to customers within the coverage area.
