This is done in collaboration with Intelsats India-based partner, Cloudcast Digital Limited (CDL).

Additional Flex services will include FlexEnterprise and FlexExec which provide maritime, enterprise, business jet and media services to customers in India

“As an established industry leader, we will leverage our experience and investment to drive expansion for our customers. We welcome like-minded players such as Planetcast as strategic partners while providing services to newer business segments in India,” said Gaurav Kharod, regional vice president of Intelsat, Asia Pacific.
