A Customer Experience To Match Expectations

Not only are we future-proofing your network investments, we’re also transforming your service experience with automated, easy-access management controls and provisioning.


Powerful, simple, and cost-effective user terminals make it easy to get on and off the network.


Provisioning takes hours, not weeks. And commissioning takes minutes, not hours.


A unified portal elevates the digital customer experience.

Software-defined Satellites

Eliminate Network Bottlenecks

Intelsat has more than ten software-defined satellites planned, and two already in production. They allow bandwidth to be dynamically adapted and concentrate connectivity where demand is highest.

​​Follow-me beams react to commands from terminals and hubs, providing continuous connectivity over land, sea, and air, resulting in uninterrupted, high-quality service for aircraft and ships.


Universal 5G Standard

Enable Frictionless Roaming

Leveraging industry standards such as 5G, 3GPP, ETSI MANO, and MEF, Intelsat’s unified network facilitates mass-scalability and flexible integration with—and expansion of—global telco networks. As a result, satellite connectivity will become an integral ingredient of telco networks, enabling them to expand to mobility and remote situations that terrestrial systems cannot access.

How We Will Get There:
Building on Excellence

Building on our history of innovative firsts, we’re investing over $2B in the first stage of our next-generation managed system, supported by the strength of our existing high-performance space and terrestrial network.


Space, Ground, and Platforms

Our first two software-defined satellites are currently in production, as is ground system virtualization, a new service orchestration platform, mobile core, customer interface portal, system-wide monitoring platform, smart-edge devices, and flat-panel antenna prototypes.

Capability Introduction
and Rollout

Our first next-gen satellites come online in this phase—bringing software-defined network services with them. Continued buildout of service capabilities and rolling product launches will bridge to a truly unified, global network. Among other benefits, this will provide demand-based, high-throughput, seamless bandwidth availability, automated plug-and-play integration with partner networks.


Global SDN Deployment

We will launch our software-defined network services globally, followed by continuous product and service expansion, and integration of third-party network peering.

It’s a bold new future only we can build.
And it’s happening now.
