October 10, 2023 – Eutelsat announces that Marlink has signed a multi-year multi-million commitment for GEO High Throughput Ku-band capacity on its EUTELSAT 10B satellite, covering Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, as well as critical maritime routes. This new agreement comes in addition to existing partnerships previously signed between Marlink and Eutelsat Group for maritime connectivity across the globe. This new agreement provides Marlink with targeted, dense and highly flexible bandwidth over the vast sailing areas and offshore locations covered by the multi-mission high-capacity EUTELSAT 10B satellite. In service since July 2023 at the 10°East orbital position, the satellite carries two multi-spotbeam High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) Ku-band payloads: a payload covering the North Atlantic corridor, Europe, the Mediterranean basin, and the Middle East, offering significant throughput in the busiest air and sea traffic zones, and a second payload extending coverage over the Atlantic Ocean, Africa, and the Indian Ocean. In partnership with Eutelsat Group, Marlink will increase the capacity and coverage of its maritime hybrid network offering customers with truly differentiated, high quality, reliable, and secure connectivity solutions worldwide. This agreement also provides Marlink with access to Eutelsat Group’s ground infrastructure, delivering robust and secure uplink capabilities. Maritime broadband connectivity is booming across all market segments, driven by the increasing number of connected vessels and the surge in usage from remote access to corporate applications, operational data and crew welfare. This agreement unlocks evermore connectivity opportunities and solutions for clients at sea throughout the vast EMEA region.
