Intelsat, Ltd., the world's leading provider of commercial satellite services, announced that Mobil Satellite Technologies has signed a multi-year contract for satellite capacity that will enable the network operator and communications provider to expand its services offering throughout the United States, Canada, Central America and the Caribbean.
Mobil Satellite Technologies uses capacity on Intelsat's Galaxy 26 and Horizons 2 satellites to provide broadband connectivity for its customers serving offices, homes, mobile vehicles, disaster recovery mobile command centers, first responders and the military.
"Although our target markets are currently domestic, Intelsat's infrastructure gives us the ability to expand globally, which was a key factor in selecting them as our satellite partner," said Bud Burton, President of Mobil Satellite Technologies. "Mobil Satellite Technologies is an innovative company that is a proven success at delivering quality, reliable services which address unique mobility needs."
"By capitalizing on Intelsat's global satellite network, Mobil Satellite Technologies continues to maintain its industry leadership in providing mobile satellite broadband solutions to agencies and institutions for which mobile communication services are critical," said Mark Rasmussen, Intelsat's Vice President of North America Sales, Network Services. "Our Network Broadband GXS solution gives our clients the ability to manage their customers' networks across multiple satellites and regions using just one hub and provides them with an unparalleled ability to offer enterprise-grade, broadband connectivity, anywhere in the world."
