Intelsat Signs Global Maritime Deal with KT

Intelsat has signed KT a distribution partner for the Intelsat Network Broadband Global Maritime service. KT Corporation's maritime customers will benefit from Intelsat's service that offers an always-on broadband connection and automatic beam switching technology all for a flat monthly fee. These features differentiate Intelsat's platform from most narrow band-based services or Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) solutions currently offered in the maritime industry.

Intelsat's Network Broadband Global Maritime platform, part of Intelsat's GlobalConnex (GXS) portfolio of services, utilizes C-band capacity provided via three ocean-region satellites: IS-602 at 178ºE, IS-707 at 307ºE and IS-906 at 64ºE. Intelsat's robust terrestrial network, including hubs at Fuchsstadt, Germany, and Riverside, California, complete its seamless global network.
