CapRock Selects Intelsat

Wednesday, September 15, 2004
Intelsat signed a new long term contract for capacity on the IA-6 satellite with CapRock Communications, a leading satellite communications service provider focused on remote industrial markets - including oilfield, construction, maritime, mining, and disaster relief. CapRock has over two decades of experience delivering business class communications, including secure corporate networking and telephony services to companies with operations in hard to reach places. CapRock will provide access to the IA-6 satellite via one of their six international teleports, with fully managed services controlled through their 24/7 global network operations center headquartered in Houston, Texas. While Intelsat is a major global provider of satellite services for the oil and gas industry, the signing of this contract marks its first penetration into the North American energy market. “CapRock has been an Intelsat customer for years, using our network to serve various clients in Africa and the Middle East. It has been our strategic goal to expand that relationship by offering them excellent North American coverage using our new Intelsat Americas fleet,” said Mark Rasmussen, Intelsat’s Regional Vice President, North America Sales, speaking at the Offshore Communications trade show in Houston. “As an industry-leading provider of advanced corporate networks, CapRock brings an outstanding portfolio of services to the exploration and production industry and it’s our role to help them make that happen.” “We rely on Intelsat as one of our primary providers of space segment, a key component of the highly reliable satellite communication solutions we provide to our customers” said David Myers, Vice President, Marketing for CapRock. “Our advanced VSAT based networking services enable customers to extend their corporate telephone and data networks to their outer most points of operation – be they in the jungle, desert, or open ocean. Intelsat’s robust space segment services help us to provide the advanced communications companies have come to expect, in places that they might not ordinarily expect to find them.”
