Airbus Defence and Space reports that it doubled its maritime VSAT sales in 2014 compared to the previous year, connecting more than 600 vessels with VSAT communications throughout the period.
Intelsat says it has successfully completed a series of tests on the compatibility of its EpicNG digital payload with existing ground equipment platforms.
Intelsat and satellite antenna developer Kymeta Corporation have announced an agreement to design and produce flat, electronically steerable, Ku-band mTenna satellite antenna systems optimised for the Intelsat EpicNG high throughput satellite (HTS) platform.
Intelsat today announced that it has established a strategic agreement to provide access to its C- and Ku-band network to SpeedCast, a satcom and maritime service provider.
Airbus Defence and Space has launched a new Pharostar Plus VSAT package with increased throughput and volume limits, available to new customers but which will also offer customers on the company's existing bundles the option to move to the package and double their throughput or capacity at no additional cost.
Astrium Services has announced that it is expanding its VSAT coverage with 100MHz of Ku-band capacity on the Intelsat 907 satellite, to serve customers in the North Sea and across European waterways.
NSSLGlobal has announced the further expansion of its Ku-Band VSAT network to include an additional two satellite beams covering the South Atlantic and Indian Ocean region.
Further details on the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) investigation into allegations of anticompetitive behaviour in the satellite industry have been released in a Federal Register Notice, outlining some of the specific areas the Commission is examining.
The US Federal Communications Commission has launched an inquiry to determine whether incumbent satellite operators are operating in ways that inhibit competition, following a complaint by resellers that Intelsat prevented them from obtaining capacity on its satellites.
Intelsat has begun its initial public offering (IPO) of 19,323,672 common shares on the New York Stock Exchange, priced at $18.00 per share – lower than the $21.00 - $25.00 bracket it was contemplating two weeks ago in its preliminary prospectuses.
