VSAT Network Expands over North Sea and Europe

Astrium Services, the global innovative provider of satellite enabled telecom solutions, is expanding its VSAT coverage with 100MHz of Ku-band capacity on the Intelsat 907 satellite, to serve customers on the North Sea and across European waterways.

As previously announced by Intelsat, the coverage agreement will enable Astrium to address significant demand from the company's core maritime transport and customized Ku-band VSAT segments, including customers in the North Sea oil and gas sector, where an increasing number of specialised vessels are pushing the boundaries of maritime VSAT usage. In 2013, Astrium Services' direct sales channel Marlink provisioned services aboard vessels in the North Sea with high capacity requirements, in some cases up to 12 Mbps, from ship to shore.

"It's vital that we continue to provide Ku-band broadband services backed by superior customer support to our North Sea and European partners," comments Tore Morten Olsen, head of maritime for Astrium Services. "With usage patterns changing and the demand for bandwidth rising, our Ku-band capacity ensures we are well positioned to provide the high level of reliable connectivity that the maritime market requires today and in the future." 

“Intelsat continues to work closely with Astrium Services to provide capacity and throughput for leading maritime customers, enabling the company’s use of sophisticated tools and processes to support safe and efficient offshore operations,” said Kurt Riegelman, Intelsat SVP of global sales. “Our infrastructure investments, including the completion of our global broadband mobility network, position us to support our customers’ unique requirements, today and well into the future.”
