Marlink signs for Epic Pacific coverage

Marlink has signed an agreement for capacity on Intelsat’s upcoming Horizons 3e satellite, an Epic-series High Throughput Satellite (HTS) to be launched in the second half of 2018 to cover Asia and the Pacific Ocean.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Horizons 3e, a joint venture satellite owned by Intelsat and SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation, will be stationed at 169° East to deliver connectivity in the Asia-Pacific region.

When combined with the already contracted high-throughput broadband services provided by Intelsat 29e, Intelsat 33e and Intelsat 35e, Marlink will be able to offer Intelsat EpicNG performance to its maritime customers traversing across all of the world’s busiest shipping routes.

“Our customers in the Pacific Ocean are increasingly demanding more connectivity, and by adding additional Intelsat EpicNG coverage to our network we can meet the ship owner connectivity demands,” said Tore Morten Olsen, president maritime, Marlink.

“Our customers in the Atlantic depend on Marlink to enable the ongoing digitisation of ship operations, and we need to ensure connectivity always works to achieve ROI on ICT investments. Intelsat EpicNG can help us to guarantee the same high level of connectivity to our entire customer base, regardless of where their operations take them.”{/mprestriction}
