Satcom Direct (SD), has become the first solution partner and master distributor to market FlexExec to the business aviation sector, following its partnership with Intelsat.
FlexExec’s broadband services are now accessible via Intelsat’s global, high performing, multi-layered Ku-band satellite fleet. Designed specifically to cover high-traffic business jet routes, FlexExec rides on the Intelsat global network, which integrates layers of high-throughput satellite platform (HTS) coverage from the company’s proven Intelsat EpicNG fleet with the company’s wide-beam satellites to deliver added resiliency and redundancy.
“We are delighted that Satcom Direct has chosen FlexExec to be a part of their SD Xperience platform,” said Mark Rasmussen, Intelsat’s vice president and general manager, mobility. “With FlexExec, Intelsat is reinventing the communications experience for business jet operators and passengers. Business travel is demanding and with the global, committed, multi-layered coverage of FlexExec, our service providers can ensure that every business passenger has access to the same high speed, reliable broadband connectivity in the sky as they would at home or in the office. Importantly, the flexibility, throughput and improved economies of scale of FlexExec enables our service providers to differentiate their service offerings and meet the evolving streaming and broadband demands of their passengers over the long-term.
“Whenever it is needed, the power and throughput of FlexExec and SD Xperience will ensure that the business and entertainment needs of their passengers will be met.”
Jim Jensen, Satcom Direct’s founder and CEO, added, “Given the demands of business aviation, FlexExec will provide the maximum flexibility, efficient use of bandwidth, and seamless connectivity service needed for an industry where routes and passenger requirements constantly shift. FlexExec is unique in the sense that the network is committed to the business aviation sector. As a result, we can deliver a highly reliable, and consistent passenger experience anytime globally. It is a significant addition to the SD customer offering.”
