Intelsat Introduces “FlexMove” Managed Service for Land Mobility
Intelsat has debuted FlexMove, an end-terminal managed service that it said allows people to connect to the Internet, private data networks, and cloud services from virtually anywhere in the world, including while on-the-move, or on-the-pause at a temporary site.
FlexMove is powered by Intelsat’s Epic High Throughput Satellite (HTS) fleet, a fixed satellite network and the IntelsatOne ground network. The company said FlexMove faster data rates than other Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) solutions at a lower cost. The company aims for anyone to be able to set up the FlexMove service and connect to the internet in minutes. FlexMove services for Communications-on-the-Move (COTM) applications use a flat-panel compact, vehicle-mounted satellite terminal that is designed to automatically acquire a connection and maintain communication while the vehicle is moving.
