Intelsat boosts India Ocean capacity

Chris Forrester

The region around the Indian Ocean is one of the worlds hottest of DTH broadcasting hot spots, and Intelsat is to build a new craft, Intelsat-22, to help fill what is increasingly looking like a major capacity gap.

Intelsat-22 will go to 72 deg East, already an important Intelsat orbital slot, and add a number of transponders to its existing portfolio of high growth demand.

Intelsat said: The satellite will supply 48 C- and 24 Ku-band 36 MHz equivalent transponders to network services and media customers in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, providing incremental capacity for commercial and government applications. The Intelsat 22 satellite will feature custom-tailored beams to meet traffic patterns in these high-demand regions including C-band capacity for Africa and Asia, and an ability to cross-connect between the two regions.

Intelsat-22s Ku-band payload will provide coverage of the Middle East and East Africa, with connectivity into Europe. The Ku-band payload will include a mobility beam bridging South East Asia, the Indian Ocean and the coastline of Africa.

Boeing will manufacture the satellite. The launch provider has not yet been announced. Launch date is given as Q1/2012.
