The Intelsat FlexMove managed service is specifically designed to support portable and lightweight terminals such as the SWARM. It enables fast, flexible and secure communications for mobility applications all over the world. In particular, it gives ground forces and emergency responders the mission agility they need to stay connected, however remote their location is, whilst only paying for the data they use.

The field-proven, ‘broadband in a backpack’ SWARM supports the need for rapid transport and setup being IATA compliant, and is PIM Powered for quick and simple pointing and optimised terminal performance.

The PIM controller provides a simple to use interface to the integrated modem, baseband switching, assisted pointing and setup functions for the SWARM and comes with a built-in visual crosshair and audio pointing device. As well as making pointing simple for any user, the PIM can support Power over Ethernet devices and provides a multitude of services to the end user - from VLAN setup and management to smart auto-selecting of AC and DC power interfaces.

FlexMove is powered by Intelsat’s award-winning global Epic high-throughput satellite (HTS) fleet, the world’s largest fixed satellite network, and the IntelsatOne ground network to provide users with a seamless global connectivity experience.

The FlexMove service delivers universal, high-speed satellite connectivity up to 20x faster than legacy MSS solutions for a fraction of the cost. A terminal can be brought online and connected in seconds with the user-friendly service portal.

Jon Godfrey, General Manager at Paradigm commented “the SWARM is easy-to-use and extremely portable, now on FlexMove its high throughput capabilities are available in the remotest locations on affordable and flexible plans.”
