Introducing Intelsat EpicNG


High Performance. Open Architecture.

Intelsat EpicNG offers you a major design breakthrough for increased satellite throughput and performance. This new constellation of high-throughput spacecraft marks the progressive evolution of our global network, incorporating new C, Ku and Ka spot beams into our fleet to create differentiated solutions for your applications. The high-performance platform is designed to exceed the capabilities of leading service providers, enabling throughput in the range of 25-60 Gbps per satellite, about 10 times that of traditional satellites and triple that of next-generation Ka-band solutions. Higher throughput will provide you with technical and economic benefits for a wide range of your satellite communication applications.
