Intelsat S.A recently stated that Global IP signed multi-year deals which will enable the company to deliver broadband service to its maritime customers in the Indian Ocean Region. Spain-based Global IP will use capacity on the Intelsat 22 at 72 degrees East, Intelsat 702 at 33 degrees East, and the IntelsatOne(sm) terrestrial network to launch advanced mobility services.
Global IP will assemble its DVB-S2 high-throughput platform at Intelsat’s teleport in Fuchsstadt, Germany, which will allow access to Intelsat’s satellite fleet and IntelsatOne infrastructure. With this new development, it will allow Global IP to offer worldwide Ku-band maritime services to oil and gas customers and energy providers in Africa, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. Intelsat is expected to finish its global broadband mobility platform in the first quarter of 2013, while the launch of Intelsat 27 is scheduled for January 31st.
