Digital Networks will leverage Intelsat's teleport services and capacity on the Galaxy 3C satellite to expand its network in the United States and Canada.
"This agreement will enable Digital Networks to quadruple its available throughput for delivering integrated voice, data and real-time applications for our energy customers," said Digital Networks CEO Curtis Blankenship. "With the energy services sector in North America expanding quickly, Intelsat was able to provide a solution that could help us support our customers' strategic growth plans, positioning us well for the future."
