By Jean-Philippe Gillet, Vice President and General Manager, Networks One of the primary values of satellite service has been (and will likely always be) the ability to connect businesses and communities from anywhere around the globe. That’s the value Intelsat has traditionally brought to our customers: enterprises and ISPs depend on the reach and reliability of Intelsat’s space and ground networks and integrate those with their own capabilities to deliver end-to-end solutions to enable a diverse and global set of customers. Meanwhile, those customers are increasingly realizing the benefits of a whole new set of Intelsat services – professional services that include logistics support, installation services, financing, and network optimization, to name a few. From global telecoms providers and regional ISPs to multinational enterprises, customers are spurring new business and growth with the help of Intelsat managed solutions that grow beyond capacity and reach, enabling new business models and delivering new capabilities and connections. Some examples of how customers are benefiting:
- Regional partners improve speed to market when we invest in new strategic initiatives, facilitate the shipping and staging of new equipment in new service regions, and manage their migration from one network technology to another.
- Service providers and large enterprises deliver massive capacity to users while driving a new level of user experience – performance and reliability that bests alternative satellite solutions and even rivals terrestrial alternatives – when we integrate efficiency-enhancing components with the proven reliability of our 50-satellite fleet.
- Customers will be able to deliver more relevant, secure, and agile solutions to businesses and communities – wherever they may be – as we expand the capabilities of our global MPLS network, adding cloud connectivity, security services, and application partners to our existing infrastructure of over 40 datacenters and more than 100 POPs.
