Telespazio Brasil to offer Intelsat FlexMove, the industry-first managed service for ubiquitous, high-throughput satellite (HTS) land mobile connectivity

(29 July 2020 - Telespazio Brasil) Telespazio Brasil today announced it is now offering the Intelsat FlexMove managed service for ubiquitous connectivity.

With FlexMove, Telespazio Brasil’s customers can easily connect to the internet, private data networks and cloud services from virtually anywhere in the world, including while on-the-move, or on-the-pause at a temporary site.

“With the Intelsat FlexMove service, we can help our customers quickly and easily deploy mission-critical communications and maintain a seamless connection to the people and applications they rely on. Telespazio Brasil is excited to partner with Intelsat to offer an industry-first high-throughput, ubiquitous connectivity solution,” said Marzio Laurenti, CEO of Telespazio Brasil.

The “always-on” FlexMove connectivity solution from Telespazio Brasil is up to 20 times faster than current mobile satellite solutions (MSS). It offers global, multi-layered, redundant coverage that enables even the most data-intensive applications.

“Intelsat welcomes Telespazio Brasil as a valued FlexMove solution partner,” said Intelsat Director for Land Mobile, Joel Schroeder. “With the ubiquitous, high-throughput FlexMove service Telespazio Brasil’s customers can seamlessly connect with confidence ― even in the most remote or challenging locations.”

Telespazio Brasil is now offering FlexMove service plans that are sold by the gigabyte (GB). These plans are seamlessly integrated with a portfolio of qualified satellite terminals empowering even non-technical personnel to set-up and connect to the internet in just minutes. Service plans are designed for recurring, seasonal, occasional and, event-based use. Users can pool airtime and share data costs across multiple terminals, making FlexMove a cost-effective connectivity solution for organizations with large vehicle fleets and numerous remote locations.

FlexMove services for Communications-on-the-Move (COTM) applications use a flat-panel compact, vehicle-mounted satellite terminal that automatically acquires a connection and maintains communication while the vehicle is moving. The FlexMove Communications-on-the-Pause (COTP) service uses a highly compact and portable satellite terminal with an automatic or assisted pointing function to connect to a satellite. Connectivity choices include a public internet connection or a private IP solution to access a customer’s network.
