Intelsat has formed an alliance with BT to expand the reach of Intelsat’s IntelsatONE terrestrial network to new locations in Europe, Africa and Asia.
The Intelsat and BT media fiber alliance interconnects Intelsat's MPLS-based IntelsatONE fiber network, which consists of fiber and points of presence (PoPs) located in major cities and teleports with BT’s MPLS-based Global Media Network (GMN).
The two networks will initially interconnect in New York and London. The alliance will develop and market seamless, next-generation managed media solutions with global terrestrial and satellite reach that operate across two complementary media networks.
BT’s GMN has PoPs and gateways in more than 20 international cities worldwide. Having access to those strategic locations enables Intelsat to extend the reach of IntelsatONE to media customers operating in new locations in Europe, Africa and Asia. Additional PoPs include Rome, Paris, Lagos, Johannesburg, Sydney, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur and Mumbai.
