ChinaSat to Become CyberStar Ground Services Agent in the Chinese Market

Loral CyberStar, a global provider of
high-quality data, video, content, and Internet services, today announced
that it has signed an agreement with the China Telecommunications Broadcast
Satellite Corporation (ChinaSat), the state-owned enterprise that provides
satellite telecommunications broadcast services throughout China. ChinaSat
will offer CyberStar’s entire range of services including the ClearStream
broadband services. Loral CyberStar is a subsidiary of Loral Space &
Communications (NYSE: LOR).

“Through our partnership with ChinaSat, CyberStar now has immediate ability
to sell its unique IP-based Internet services to customers throughout the
Chinese market,” said Neil Bauer, president, CyberStar. “We are very pleased
to initiate this relationship with ChinaSat and look forward to addressing a
sophisticated Chinese market that demands high-quality desktop solutions.”

Dedicated to providing advanced, reliable, excellent, and fast
telecommunications services throughout China, ChinaSat will market CyberStar
products to government agencies, national corporations and multinational
enterprises. ChinaSat will also become CyberStar’s in-country ground
services agent, working to secure necessary licensing authorizations,
conducting site surveys, procuring satellite capacity, and installing and
testing customer site equipment.

“We entered into this agreement with CyberStar because of its reputation for
quality satellite and fiber-based services and its proven track record of
success in the international marketplace,” said Zhou Zehe, president,
ChinaSat. “CyberStar’s expertise will ensure that we can build the best
possible satellite and fiber infrastructure for our customers. CyberStar’s
ability to broadcast high-quality data, video and audio will ensure that our
customers receive the first-rate broadband transmissions that their
businesses demand, from training needs to corporate communications to
content distribution.”

With CyberStar’s services, ChinaSat has the ability to offer enterprises a
private, satellite-based network that can bypass most of the terrestrial
Internet to avoid congestion and deliver broadband applications to multiple,
geographically dispersed sites regardless of the existing infrastructure.

ChinaSat also will offer its customers CyberStar’s ClearStream product
suite, allowing organizations operating across China’s vast geographical
regions to provide standardized and comprehensive corporate communications
and training services.

ClearStream Live, CyberStar’s flagship streaming media application, uses
open standards digital video broadcast (DVB) technology, a standard Web
browser and the Windows Media Player, to deliver high-quality video and
CD-quality audio communications live to the desktop or conference room
monitor. By multicasting 300 Kbps video streams onto the local area network
(LAN), ClearStream Live offers a bandwidth-efficient method of viewing live
video and enables enterprises to reliably deliver high impact,
time-sensitive live communications to multiple sites without fear of
unpredictable video performance due to Internet congestion.
