Welcome to the ‘EpicNG’ Era

The first of the Intelsat EpicNG satellites reached orbit in January and officially began operations March 28 2016, providing service to customers such as Harris CapRock, Panasonic Avionics, EMC (formerly MTN), Axesat and leading national telecom operators in Latin America

Following Intelsat 29e, we successfully launched Intelsat 31 in June. This media satellite will provide DTH services for DirecTV Latin America, providing depth of service for Intelsat 30 and resilience that reflects DirecTV’s commitment to providing its subscribers with the highest reliability in the region.

In the coming months, two satellites are scheduled for launch that will impact customers across all of our vertical applications and a broad geographic span…especially in Africa. The launch of the second Intelsat EpicNG satellite, Intelsat 33e, will provide high throughput services to customers such as Marlink, Orange, Panasonic Avionics, TRBNA, as well as leading broadband and wireless network providers throughout the Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia regions.  Intelsat 36 will provide Ku-band DTH service for Multichoice as well as C-band restoration for Intelsat 20 media customers, expanding the availability of high definition media content for consumers across Africa.
