Intelsat Launches New End-to-End Managed Service
Intelsat introduced Mobile Reach Manage, a new end-to-end managed service that enables Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to quickly and cost effectively deploy their 2G/3G/4G network infrastructure into areas once considered unreachable.
In the past, many MNOs faced business and geographic challenges when looking to expand coverage across hundreds of sites located in regions outside of the main cities and adjacent suburban areas. Mobile Reach Manage removes the cost, geographic hurdles and complexity faced by traditional backhaul solutions. It provides a high-performing, space-based cellular backhaul solution that offers MNOs an end-to-end connectivity service from any Radio Access Network (RAN) site to the MNO Core with a guaranteed Service Level Agreement (SLA). In addition, Mobile Reach Manage does not require MNOs to invest in any space or ground infrastructure. This enables MNOs to close their business case and make reliable, quality coverage available to more communities throughout the world.
“With Mobile Reach Manage, Intelsat is eliminating the difficulty and expense often associated with expanding network infrastructure in the more remote and rural areas of the world,” said Jean Philippe Gillet, Intelsat’s vice president and general manager, Networks. “By including Mobile Reach Manage in their network planning strategy, MNOs will get an end-to-end, cellular backhaul managed service solution that meets quality of service requirements and delivers increased flexibility and speed when it comes to network deployments. As a result, they will be able to increase customer satisfaction, profitably grow their business and reduce churn. Space-based platforms are essential to closing the digital divide, and with Mobile Reach Manage, MNOs will be able to demonstrate to governments and regulators that they can close the coverage gaps and attain their Universal Service obligations.”
Mobile Reach Manage is available today in countries across Asia-Pacific, North America and Latin America and will be rolled out globally.
