Intelsat for telecoms
Intelsat announced that Brazil’s Mareste will use Intelsat satellite service to deliver communications solutions for maritime customers.

Mareste, a privately held company in Rio de Janeiro, will offer Ku-band communications services delivered by the Galaxy 28 satellite for the leisure, fishing and coastal sectors in Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay.

Mareste will package the satellite services with its Ello product, which includes antennas and hardware, to provide a cost-effective satellite communication system designed to serve smaller coastal and regional vessels.

“With access to Intelsat’s satellite fleet and services, Mareste will be able to grow into a market that has traditionally been underserved,” said Marcio Esteves, president of Mareste.

“Satellites are delivering next generation broadband services to the maritime sector.  Intelsat is focused on simplifying the process of acquiring the services and integrating them into existing operations,” said Carmen González-Sanfeliu, Intelsat’s Managing Director, Latin America & Caribbean, Sales.

Intelsat delivers accelerated time to market, ensured availability and secure delivery of bandwidth for network operators and service providers. Intelsat offers connectivity from across the Intelsat fleet, including the Intelsat EpicNG platform and IntelsatOne Flex for Maritime service.
