Intelsat Delivers New Reliable Broadcast Connectivity Service
Intelsat, operator of one of the world’s largest integrated satellite and terrestrial networks and leading provider of inflight connectivity (IFC), today announced a new content distribution system that will use the internet to transport quality video content around the globe. The IntelsatOne IP service capitalizes on Intelsat’s decades of satellite and terrestrial experience to deliver reliability, customer service, global reach, content backup capabilities and scalability.
“IntelsatOne IP increases the reach and flexibility of the Intelsat Global Media Network and complements our existing global satellite and fiber footprint,” said Pascale Fromont, vice president of Media at Intelsat. “IntelsatOne IP offers more connectivity options to broadcasters of all sizes looking for more affordable and reliable ways to transport content as well as for those seeking new ways to increase viewership.”
IntelsatOne IP is designed as a global interconnected network powered by a software platform eliminating the need for hardware which makes for faster deployment.
Using Intelsat’s hybrid terrestrial and satellite infrastructure broadcasters are also able to access the full Intelsat Global Media Network, bringing connectivity that traditional IP providers are unable to provide. This empowers media customers with a secure, global solution equipped with full network visibility, controlled, multi-destination routing management and enhanced end-to-end video management and streaming protection.
The product is available today for customers to begin testing use cases. IntelsatOne IP will become commercially available as an operational service at a later date.
Intelsat’s global team of professionals is focused on providing seamless and secure, satellite-based communications to government, NGO and commercial customers through the company’s next-generation worldwide network and managed services. Bridging the digital divide by operating one of the world’s largest and most advanced satellite fleet and connectivity infrastructures, Intelsat enables people and their tools to speak over oceans, see across continents and listen through the skies to communicate, cooperate and coexist. Since its founding six decades ago, the company has been synonymous with satellite-industry “firsts” in service to its customers and the planet. Leaning on a legacy of innovation and focusing on addressing a new generation of challenges Intelsat team members now have their sights on the “next firsts” in space as they disrupt the field and lead in the digital transformation of the industry.
