Dish colocation service description
The Serverius dish colocation service offers secure square meters to host its client own personal dish hardware. Serverius does not own the hardware, users need to bring their own equipment to the datacenter where they can use additional services like colocation and connectivity to convert and transport the signals over the internet to their home.
The Serverius engineers can perform basic installation like dish placement, cabling, installation of colocation hardware, simple aligning, etc. but advanced aligning a user should do himself. If needed, we can forward you some external dish companies who can perform this kind of tasks.
If you are not able to sent your hardware to the datacenter, Serverius can assist by purchase equipment for you. For this you can sent your requirements to the firstname.lastname@example.org department.

This is not possible as Serverius does not have hardware that is compatible with TBS cards. You will have to buy your own equipment and send it to the DC.
What signals can I receive?
You can receive almost any signal that you want, depending on the size (and distance) of the dish that you want to place. Best signals to receive are: Astra 19.2E – Hotbird – Thor5 – Astra 28.2 – Hispasat 30W
Do I need to install the dish myself?
You can send the equipment to one of the datacenters and we can install the dish for you. However, this option will cost you extra (setup fee). You can also visit the datacenter yourself (or send your engineer) and install the dish yourself to safe some additional costs.
What type of rack colocation do I need for this?
When condidering taking a dish colocation at Serverius, you need your own private cabinet for your equipment. This can be our smallest cabinet starting from 14U – middle 20U private rack or largest 45U private rack. It all depends on how many servers you want to place inside the cabinet.
How much bandwidth do I need?
Bandwidth depends on which signals you want to receive and transmit. If you are planning on sending a lot of HD channels, the total bandwidth is also important.
Most of our Clients start with 1G unmetered bandwidth on 1Gbps uplink but grow fast in a short time to 10G, 20G and some even up to 40G unmetered.
Based on your requirements, we can offer you the best network connection within the Netherlands and towards other countries like Germany by our private peering with DTAG.
