IntelsatOne IP will become commercially available as an operational service at a later date.
Intelsat has announced a new content distribution system that will use the internet to transport quality video content around the globe. The IntelsatOne IP service capitalises on Intelsats decades of satellite and terrestrial experience to deliver reliability, customer service, global reach, content backup capabilities and scalability.
Pascale Fromont, vice president of Media at Intelsat, said: IntelsatOne IP increases the reach and flexibility of the Intelsat Global Media Network and complements our existing global satellite and fiber footprint. IntelsatOne IP offers more connectivity options to broadcasters of all sizes looking for more affordable and reliable ways to transport content as well as for those seeking new ways to increase viewership.
IntelsatOne IP is designed as a global interconnected network powered by a software platform eliminating the need for hardware which makes for faster deployment.
Using Intelsats hybrid terrestrial and satellite infrastructure broadcasters are also able to access the full Intelsat Global Media Network, bringing connectivity that traditional IP providers are unable to provide. This empowers media customers with a secure, global solution equipped with full network visibility, controlled, multi-destination routing management and enhanced end-to-end video management and streaming protection.
The product is available today for customers to begin testing use cases. IntelsatOne IP will become commercially available as an operational service at a later date.
