Panasonic Avionics Announces Agreement With Intelsat To Support In-Flight Wi-Fi, Mobile Phone Services And Global Television On Flights Over One Of The Fastest Growing Air Travel Regions In The World

Stocks in this article: I

Panasonic Avionics Corporation announced today an agreement with Intelsat S.A. (NYSE:I), the world’s leading provider of satellite services, for capacity on the high performance Intelsat Epic NG platform. Panasonic has selected the Intelsat 33e satellite to provide coverage and capacity for its Global Communications Services over one of the fastest growing air travel regions in the world.

The agreement will enable Panasonic to deliver the industry’s highest bandwidth service to airplanes traveling from Europe to South East Asia and Europe to North Asia. It also provides capacity and coverage for intra-region routes including missions over Russia and the Middle East.

This new service region complements the U.S. and North Atlantic services that will be provided by the first announced Epic satellite, Intelsat 29e. Intelsat 33e is the second of five announced Epic-class satellites, and is expected to launch in 2016.

Like Intelsat 29e, Intelsat 33e delivers high power Ku-band spot beams that offer extremely high data throughput for Panasonic’s Global Communications Services, which include eXConnect in-flight Wi-Fi and eXPhone mobile phone services. It also offers wide beams that support Panasonic's unique global eXTV live television. The combination of coverage provided by Intelsat 33e and Intelsat 29e will provide spot beam service for heavily traveled air routes that account for more than 50% of the world's commercially scheduled flight hours.

"This is the second major commitment by Panasonic to the high throughput Intelsat Epic NG platform, and it will enable us to continue to provide unparalleled aeronautical broadband service to airline customers that fly missions all across the globe," said Paul Margis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Panasonic Avionics Corporation.

The Epic design, fully integrated with the Intelsat network, makes intelligent use of spectrum, delivering more bandwidth over the regions with the highest requirements while also achieving global coverage.
