There are many remote locations around the globe that fiber and terrestrial wireless networks can’t reach, and where ground infrastructure is at risk of disruption by natural or man-made events. That’s where integrated connectivity solutions, like those from
Traditional Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) solutions come with a high price tag and don’t have the features or bandwidth necessary to power the data-intensive applications that end-users are increasingly demanding. FlexMove offers data rates 20 times faster than these traditional MSS solutions at a fraction of the cost per byte. As the only commercial satellite operator with an independent third-party Service Organization Control 3 (SOC 3) cybersecurity accreditation, end users can also rest assured that Intelsat’s space and ground network is secure.
Virtually anyone can set-up the FlexMove service and connect to the internet in minutes. FlexMove services for Communications-on-the-Move (COTM) applications use a flat-panel compact, vehicle-mounted satellite terminal that automatically acquires a connection and maintains communication while the vehicle is moving. The Communications-on-the-Pause (COTP) service uses a highly compact and portable satellite terminal with an automatic or assisted pointing function to connect to a satellite. Connectivity choices include a public Internet connection or a private IP solution to access a customer’s network.
Intelsat FlexMove service packages offer pre-set data rates sold by the gigabyte (GB) and can be used on qualified terminals available through a global network of solution partners, including Intelsat’s FlexMove launch partner GRC.
“GRC are delighted to be selected as an Intelsat FlexMove partner and as a testament to the services, features and cost-effective gigabyte plans, we've already got customers signed up from both the Defense and Government sectors,” said GRC Managing Director
Intelsat’s easy-to-use service portal enables FlexMove solution partners to provision, configure and quickly monitor network access in real-time through an online interface or integrated APIs.
