Intelsat Broadens Maritime Services in China
Intelsat is extending its maritime solution offerings in China. APT Mobile Satcom (APSATCOM) will become Intelsat‘s first maritime solution partner to offer, in China, IntelsatOne Flex for Maritime services. This agreement aims to deliver a seamless global maritime network for APSATCOM’s customers, providing better throughput and widened access to broadband services.
Under the new, multi-year agreement, Intelsat will provide IntelsatOne Flex for Maritime services, interconnection, and backhaul to APSATCOM’s data centers. The IntelsatOne Flex for Maritime platform is a managed service that offers multi-layered global coverage by leveraging Intelsat Epic NG High-Throughput Satellites (HTS) and Intelsat’s global network of wide beam satellites.
IntelsatOne Flex for Maritime aims to provide a flexible infrastructure for solution partners looking to incorporate HTS services, while avoiding forecasting throughput requirements across the various beams. APSATCOM and other solution partners are able to customize their solutions through this IntelsatOne Flex Service.
