Ovzon Expands Reach Through Agreement with Intelsat

Intelsat and Ovzon have entered into a multi-year agreement whereby Intelsat will provide service to Ovzon via two powerful steerable beams on Intelsat’s planned new satellite, Intelsat 39, expected to launch in the third quarter of 2019. Intelsat 39 will provide services for network, video distribution and government customers in Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

The Intelsat-enabled service will add to Ovzon’s existing capacity, thereby expanding coverage for Ovzon’s customers. Combining the power, resiliency, and flexibility of Intelsat 39 with Ovzon’s managed service and ultra-small laptop-sized terminals will provide up to 5 times the throughput capability to small teams conducting disaster response, intelligence gathering, and other operations, delivering mission-critial information at the tactical edge. Such capabilities have traditionally required 2.4 meter or larger terminals. “This agreement plays an important role in enabling Ovzon to serve customers with global requirements for high-bandwidth services. It also strengthens our partnership with Intelsat to the benefit of both companies,” said Per Wahlberg, CEO of Ovzon.

“The combination of Ovzon’s high-speed service to ultra-small terminals, Intelsat’s innovative steerable beam technology and the global coverage provided by the Intelsat fleet creates a powerful innovation in connectivity. Our partnership with Ovzon is an important step toward empowering remote users with the communications innovations they need,” added Samer Halawi, Chief Commercial Officer of Intelsat.
