Intelsat is now serving more than 10,000 vessels with its FlexMaritime service.

Intelsat says it has more than 2,000 of its terminals in key maritime markets since November 2021, that include merchant shipping, fishing, leisure and offshore energy.

Launched in 2017, FlexMaritime is powered by a global, multi-layered, high-throughput satellite (HTS) network capable of delivering high density bandwidth and extremely high levels of service flexibility and reliability.

Vessel owners benefit by leveraging next-generation shipboard technologies, smart shipping and other, in-demand, maritime connectivity applications that include remote monitoring and performance diagnostics, video streaming, real-time software upgrades, and essential, always-available connectivity for crew members.

“Intelsat is proud to enable our partners and their customers’ success through our enterprise-grade communications network that supports the next-gen solutions and services the maritime industry needs both at the port and at sea,” said Intelsat’s SVP of Mobility, Mark Rasmussen. “Our growth in this sector is a testament to the power of FlexMaritime and our global network, as well as to Intelsat’s continuous innovation, including a committed launch plan for a next-gen software-defined network.”
