Marlink reports that it has renewed its agreement with Intelsat for the supply of Ku-band capacity to power global VSAT services for maritime and other industries.
The agreement includes the future use of satellites with a software-defined operating system, which can improve the precision of signal delivery and stability of quality-of-service levels.
It also covers global distribution of capacity within the Marlink network and joint development initiatives to prepare users for software-defined satellite (SDS) services.
“We are delighted to extend our close and long-standing agreement with Intelsat which enables us to provide our clients with predictability and quality within our smart hybrid network,” said Erik Ceuppens, Chief Executive Officer, Marlink.
