Intelsat adds China VSAT partnership

Satellite operator Intelsat has announced a new partnership with Shenzen-based APT Mobile Satcom Ltd, which will see APT become the first Chinese provider of maritime Ku-band VSAT services running on the IntelsatOne Flex platform.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Under the multi-year agreement, Intelsat will provide satellite interconnection and backhaul to APT’s data centres via the IntelsatOne Flex managed service, leveraging the company’s latest generation EpicNG high-throughput satellites (HTS) as well as its global network of wide beam satellites.

APT will be able to customise VSAT packages for its Chinese customers and other potential users in Asia Pacific using this platform alongside a 1-metre antenna, providing its own value-added applications for maritime customers for business operations and crew services.

“To support the growing communications requirements of our maritime customers we needed a high-powered, reliable managed services platform,” said Jason Li, CEO of APT Mobile Satcom.

“IntelsatOne Flex for Maritime provides us with the throughput, flexibility, and redundancy we need to deliver a consistent level of service and availability wherever our customers need it. This enables them to enhance the efficiency of their business operations while at sea and provide fast, reliable Wi-Fi connectivity that improves crew morale and loyalty.”{/mprestriction}
