Bringing the Globalized Network to Life: Government

As government and defense organizations continue to face budgetary constraints, an increasingly sophisticated threat environment and greater competition for dominance in space, commercial satellite operators have an important opportunity to play a key role in their success.

Last week we made two announcements that demonstrate how Intelsat is evolving as a leader in the industry to meet the needs of government customers through next-generation satellite communications provided by our Globalized Network.

These contracts and partnerships are addressing some of today’s most pressing connectivity challenges – to establish reliable communications in remote or war-torn areas of the world, and deploy increasingly sophisticated, airborne systems that can support global operations more intelligently, while mitigating risk.

The bandwidth needed to transmit operational data in the age of IoT and mobile devices to move troops and equipment, detect emerging threats or drive disaster recovery efforts requires truly end-to-end, global reach and extremely high-performance and secure communications.

With the capabilities of our Globalized Network – offering the world’s largest satellite backbone combined with terrestrial infrastructure, managed services and the Intelsat Secure Operations Center (ISOC) – we are well positioned to support the most demanding government communications with solutions that deliver greater throughput, resiliency and flexibility, along with the highest levels of information protection and mission assurance.

To learn more, be sure to contact us if you plan to visit the AFCEA NGA Industry Day 2016, March 16 in Springfield, VA or TechNet Air, March 22-24, in San Antonio, TX.  You can also follow our SatCom Frontier blog, which covers the ongoing challenges, opportunities and news affecting our military, commercial and government customers.
