Fixed satellite service provider Intelsat now is touting its new terrestrial network, dubbed IntelsatONE. The Cisco-powered venture consists of an IP/MPLS-based network, fiber, teleports and points of presence.
According to Intelsat, by using IntelsatONE, cable and broadcast customers can create “a global next-generation media networking community, accommodating new and emerging content delivery requirements” like:
- Multiple applications over a single circuit, including high-quality HD, 3D, SD, streaming video, store & forward, confidence return links, data and voice;
- Optimized support of MPEG-4 HD transmissions on satellite MCPC platforms, incorporating DVB-S2 8PSK modulation that offers 40-percent higher throughput versus comparable DVB-S platforms;
- Accelerated provisioning time for new services; and
- Improved user controls, including user-scheduled feeds as well as enhanced self-monitoring and trouble-shooting capabilities, helping to ensure visibility of services from the production studio to the final destination.
Intelsat is demonstrating this new offering in Booth SU1417 at NAB this week in Las Vegas.
