Intelsat allies with BT to expand reach

March 15, 2011

Intelsat has formed an alliance with BT that expands the reach of its IntelsatONE terrestrial network to new locations in Europe, Africa and Asia.

The Intelsat and BT media fibre alliance interconnects Intelsat’s MPLS-based IntelsatONE fiber network, which consists of fibre and points of presence (PoPs) located in major cities and teleports with BT’s MPLS-based Global Media Network (GMN). The two networks will initially interconnect in New York and London.

The alliance will develop and market seamless, next-generation managed media solutions with global terrestrial and satellite reach that operate across two complementary media networks.
