ITC Global signs agreements with Intelsat for broadband capacity

Dec 28, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- ITC Global, a provider of satellite communications services, has signed two multi-year agreements with Intelsat SA, a provider of satellite services, for broadband capacity.

In the first agreement, ITC Global will leverage Intelsat 18 at 180 degrees East to provide C-band services to its mining customers in eastern Russia. ITC Global will integrate its services into a sophisticated network, incorporating carrier-in-carrier technology, to achieve optimal efficiency in delivering high-throughput broadband Internet to remote locations, Intelsat said.

ITC Global also signed a contract for capacity on Intelsat 906 at 64 degrees East, enabling broadband service to a natural resources provider in Western Australia.

"Intelsat's premiere C-band capacity provides an essential element of our newest customized communications offering," said Michael Spytek, ITC Global vice president of Engineering. "Operational excellence is a hallmark of our service, and one that our clientele in the mining, energy, and maritime sectors require. Intelsat's track record of performance and reliability enables us to move forward confidently in designing the right solution for some of the most challenging locations in the world." "ITC Global's customers have come to expect unparalleled reliability in difficult environments that often render other communications platforms unworkable," said Intelsat SVP of Global Sales Kurt Riegelman. "Intelsat is ideally positioned to offer ITC Global an effective solution that is capable of meeting the varied requirements of their customers."
