Capacity - - Five Top : Satellite Operations -

In­tel­sat was formed as an in­ter-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tion in 1964, with the first satel­lite go­ing into or­bit a year later. The com­pany has launched its first two Epic satel­lites, the lat­est of which is due to de­liver dig­i­tal data ser­vices to mo­bile and fixed op­er­a­tors in Africa by Novem­ber. In­tel­sat is work­ing with a num­ber of mo­bile op­er­a­tors, in­clud­ing Bharti Air­tel, Eti­salat, MTN, Or­ange, Sa­fari­com, Telkom and Vo­da­com, to enable them to ex­tend their net­works into ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties. Projects:

Gond­wana: Con­cluded a long-term ca­pac­ity agree­ment that will enable the iwayafrica Group to of­fer vir­tual net­work op­er­a­tor (VNO) ser­vices to tele­coms op­er­a­tors and ISPS. STC: Ad­di­tional con­nec­tiv­ity from the In­tel­sat 15 satel­lite. TIM: Brazil’s TIM be­comes first op­er­a­tor to utilise In­tel­sat’s first Epic satel­lite in the coun­try, In­tel­sat 19, to sup­port net­work de­mands and sup­port­ing 3G and 4G de­ploy­ments.
