Intelsat’s latest service offering Cloud Connect Media expands Intelsat’s cloud connectivity solutions with secure access to AWS for media customers.
This collaboration can provide Intelsat media customers a more efficient way to connect to their playout, video editing, and additional resources they use in the cloud while still accessing the IntelsatOne media network for centralized distribution and managed services, including uplink and/or downlink to key satellites and teleports, colocation, and much more.
“The ability to send and receive media content securely from the cloud, while maintaining broadcast-grade distribution reliability, has become a focus for many of our media customers,” said Bill O’Hara, VP and GM of media business at Intelsat.
In addition to advancing media services, Intelsat customers using enterprise and commercial aviation connectivity services will be able to take advantage of AWS Direct Connect.
“AWS Direct Connect can support Intelsat’s mission with a low latency, secure, and private connection to the global AWS network,” said Clint Crosier, director, aerospace and satellite at AWS. “The speed and agility of AWS are well suited to help Intelsat meet customer expectations for rapid, reliable global connectivity and communication.”
Currently available in the US and Europe, Cloud Connect Media expands the capabilities of Intelsat’s Cloud Connect with secure cloud connectivity for FlexEnterprise network customers.
As organizations continue to integrate cloud-based services into their operations, the Cloud Connect portfolio will aggregate the capabilities of cloud partners and Intelsat’s global networks to enable new services and extend the benefits and reach of the cloud to locations around the globe.
