intelsat-logo-250With more than a decade of experience providing critical satellite capacity to the global maritime industry, Intelsat is keenly aware of the challenges faced by service providers who deliver satellite connectivity across all the maritime sectors we serve. Those sectors include commercial shipping, cruise, oil and gas, superyacht, fishing and leisure – each of which has its own unique requirements and customer demands. Intelsat’s customers, the satellite service and solution providers, are demanding specialized tools as they work to integrate higher-capacity satellite solutions into their operations. These include tools for seasonal fluctuations in capacity needs, reactive purchasing, the ability to forecast future bandwidth demand for each region, and applications to ensure the highest possible return on any investment in new technology.

The award winning IntelsatOne Flex for Maritime platform provides those tools. It lets service providers integrate capacity from across the Intelsat fleet – including our next-generation EpicNG high-throughput satellites (HTS), the IntelsatOne global ground infrastructure, and the HTS-optimized iDirect Velocity® platform – into a simplified, unified ecosystem.

When designing the IntelsatOne Flex for Maritime platform, our main goal was to enable simple access to Intelsat’s mobility network while allowing our customers to maintain full control over their service differentiation – something that is not possible with other HTS service platforms. Continue>
