Creating Gateway to Intelsat EpicNG Services for the Middle East

19/09/2017 15:12 AST

Intelsat S.A. (NYSE:I), operator of the world’s first Globalized Network and leader in integrated satellite communications, and Etisalat UAE, a leading telecommunications services provider in the Middle East & Africa, today detailed their plan to expand the distribution of Intelsat EpicNG services in the Middle East region.

Under a multiyear expansion, Etisalat will upgrade its network to deliver higher performance to customers in the region using the Intelsat 33e high-throughput satellite. Concurrently, Intelsat will leverage Etisalat’s teleport in Dubai as an expansion node of the IntelsatOne Flex service. The teleport acts as an extension to Etisalat’s Smart Hub services. Equipped with the latest technologies and platforms, it serves as one of the globe’s major satellite hubs, hosting more than 40 antennas. This will expand options in the region to benefit from award-winning Intelsat EpicNG high-throughput services.

“This agreement with Intelsat will introduce a new level of cooperation to our long-term relationship,” said Ali Amiri, Group Chief Carrier & Wholesale Officer, Etisalat. “Leveraging the innovative Intelsat EpicNG platform and IntelsatOne Flex managed services, we will be able to deliver new, more powerful applications to our current customers as well as address new verticals.”

“Intelsat sought to build upon its already strong relationship with Etisalat as we developed our global footprint for the IntelsatOneFlex managed broadband service,” said Kurt Riegelman, Intelsat’s Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “Etisalat will be an important distributor of Intelsat EpicNG services and capabilities for customers throughout the Middle East and into Africa and Asia. Intelsat’s innovations, including Intelsat EpicNG, are unlocking new opportunities for our customers and distributors. Our expanded relationship with Etisalat will result in new applications as well as better services for customers throughout the region.”
