Driven by the growing demand for Voice over IP (VoIP), broadband and cellular backhaul services via satellite, Intelsat announced today that it has secured rights, through The Brazilian National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL), to begin offering a wide range of its GlobalConnex(SM) Managed Solutions to businesses and government agencies throughout Brazil. Working jointly with its partner corporate services providers in Brazil, Intelsat will target businesses that include multinational corporations, multi-site retailers, agribusiness companies, financial services firms, offshore communications providers, and manufacturing companies.

Intelsat’s GlobalConnex Managed Solutions are intended to complement its partners’ service offerings by bundling space segment with teleports, points of presence and ground network infrastructure. They are designed to provide end-to-end support for media, trunking, broadband Internet, VoIP, WiFi hotspots, distance learning, and point-of-sale transactions. Other components of Intelsat’s Managed Solutions offering include connection to Tier 1 backbone, satellite hub station, end-user premises equipment (VSAT terminals) and 24/7 network service support. Intelsat’s local partners, in addition to sales and marketing support, will provide in-country installation and maintenance.

“Securing approval to provide our flexible and innovative managed solutions here gives us the chance to offer Brazilian companies and government agencies the same growth opportunities afforded to companies in other parts of the world,” said Carmen Gonzalez-Sanfeliu, Intelsat’s Regional Vice President, Latin America Sales. “Intelsat has been successful in providing packaged communications services in many regions and we are proud to offer Brazilian enterprises the same scaleable and cost-effective means of doing business.”
