Staying connected no matter where you are or what you’re doing is now a way of life. That doesn’t change for businesses, first responders and other professionals who work in the field or on the road, and who need to stay connected anywhere their jobs take them.
Recent advancements in satellite connectivity are making it possible to use high-throughput satellite (HTS) connectivity in combination with terrestrial wireless services, creating a “network of networks” hybrid solution that can provide organizations with remote operations and on-the-move employees with easy-to-deploy communication options that can help quickly scale operations where and when they’re needed most.
These advances couldn’t be any more timely, as NSR predicts that demand for HTS capacity for land mobility is expected to reach 24 Gbps by 2028, up from less than 1 Gbps in 2017.
Intelsat recently surveyed nearly 350 professionals across global mining, oil & gas, rail, commercial goods and transport, and first-responder industries to learn more about the current operational connectivity challenges they face, and any roadblocks that may prevent the adoption of more effective hybrid space-terrestrial connectivity solutions.
Here are some of the insights we uncovered:
Intelsat FlexMove was designed to provide a flexible HTS connectivity solution that works in tandem with cellular and terrestrial broadband to keep remote workers, first responders and other mobile end users seamlessly connected. The end-terminal, fully managed service makes it easy and affordable to connect to the Internet, private data networks and cloud services from virtually anywhere in the world, including while on-the-move or on-the-pause at a temporary site.
Intelsat FlexMove service packages offer simple plans sold by the gigabyte (GB) and are paired with a portfolio of qualified, industry-leading terminals available through Intelsat’s global network of solution partners. And, as the only commercial satellite operator with an independent third-party Service Organization Control 3 (SOC 3) cybersecurity accreditation, end-users can rest assured that Intelsat’s space and ground network is secure.
