Global IP to introduce Ku-band maritime services to oil, gas and energy customers across the vast Indian Ocean region.

Intelsat S.A., a  provider of satellite services, announced today that Spain-based Global IP, a provider of satellite communications for maritime, energy and corporate customers, has signed multi-year agreements allowing it to provide broadband service to its maritime customers in the Indian Ocean region. Global IP will use capacity on Intelsat 22 at 72° East, Intelsat 702 at 33° East, and the IntelsatOneSM terrestrial network to introduce advanced mobility services.

 
Global IP will collocate its DVB-S2 high-throughput platform at Intelsat's teleport in Fuchsstadt, Germany, enabling access to the IntelsatOne infrastructure and Intelsat's satellite fleet. The agreements enable Global IP to introduce worldwide Ku-band maritime services to oil and gas customers, as well as energy providers, in Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.

 
"These agreements add multiple strategic beams to our global network that are highly optimized for advanced mobility applications in the Indian Ocean region," said Jesus Barber, general manager for Global IP.  "Collocating our hub in Fuchsstadt gives us access to IntelsatOne and the world's largest satellite fleet, enhancing and extending our services to our oil, gas and maritime customers."   

 
"Our unique and flexible hybrid solution is the ideal platform for Global IP to rely on for meeting the communications needs of its mobility customers in the Indian Ocean region," said Jean-Philippe Gillet, Intelsat RVP of sales for Europe and the Middle East. "As demand for fast, reliable broadband access across multiple formats continues to increase, our mobility offering provides best-in-class service in remote and underserved environments, including ships and energy platforms."

 
Intelsat is scheduled to complete its global broadband mobility platform in the first quarter of 2013 with the launch of Intelsat 27, scheduled for January 31.
