Marlink Signs Agreement for HTS Services on Horizons 3e
[Via Satellite 11-18-2016] Intelsat announced that Marlink signed an agreement for high-throughput connectivity from its Horizons 3e satellite. Horizons 3e, a joint venture satellite owned by Intelsat and SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation, will be stationed at 169 degrees east to deliver connectivity in the Asia-Pacific region. The satellite is scheduled for launch in the second half of 2018 and, when combined with the already contracted high-throughput broadband services provided by Intelsat 29e, Intelsat 33e and Intelsat 35e, Marlink will offer Intelsat EpicNG performance to its maritime customers traversing the world’s busiest shipping routes.
Complementing the global Intelsat EpicNG services, Marlink will also leverage IntelsatOne uplink and virtual network operator services, including those from Intelsat’s teleport in Napa, California.
