Commercial satellite services provider Intelsat has confirmed its upcoming launch schedule for four satellites, part of a $1.3bn fleet investment programme in the Asia-Pacific region.

The programme is designed to refresh and expand satellite capacity available for media programmers and communications providers offering services in the region. It will also deploy a significant portion of Intelsat’s global mobility beams, a Ku-band network designed to deliver broadband services for maritime, aero and other mobility services.

Intelsat’s four new satellites - Intelsat 18, 19, 20 and 22 - will be launched in 2011 and 2012.

“Today’s successful media companies are continually seeking to maximise the audience for their content,” said Kurt Riegelman, Intelsat’s senior vice-president of global sales.


“With our global network of over 50 satellites, the IntelsatONE terrestrial infrastructure, and refreshed capacity from our upcoming launches, Intelsat can provide highly efficient distribution into a single region or throughout the globe, supporting customer growth.


“The constantly growing need for broadband connectivity is vital to network operators in the Asia-Pacific region. For example, we are establishing a regional distribution network to provide maritime services on our Ku-band mobility beams, which are customised to provide broadband connectivity to heavily used shipping routes.”
