Spanish company Global IP will be able to provide satellite broadband service to its maritime customers in the Indian Ocean thanks to recently-signed multi-year agreements signed with Intelsat S.A.
A pair of satellites -Intelsat 22 and Intelsat 702, to be exact- plus the IntelsatOne(sm) terrestrial network will provide capacity for Global IP’s planned advanced mobility services.
In order to access Intelsat’s satellite fleet and the IntelsatOne infrastructure, Global IP will collocate its DVB-S2 high-throughput platform to Intelsat’s Fuchsstadt, Germany satellite Teleport.
Global IP will use Intelsat’s capacity to deliver Ku-band maritime SATCOM services to oil and gas customers across the world. It will also offer its services to energy providers in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific region.
For its part, Intelsat will launch the Intelsat 27 satellite on January 31, 2013. The new satellite will complete the Company’s global satellite broadband mobility platform.
