Intelsat’s Galaxy 17 satellite operational

Intelsat, global provider of commercial satellite services, has confirmed that its new Galaxy 17 satellite is fully operational and providing services. The satellite, built by Thales Alenia Space and launched by Arianespace on 4 May, arrived at 74.05ºW on July 5th and Intelsat took control of the satellite from Thales Alenia Space on July 6th.

Galaxy 17 will eventually be located at 91ºW and will join Intelsat’s North American cable community within its Galaxy fleet comprised of 15 other satellites that cover North America, Central America and the Caribbean. Once on station, the satellite will offer fresh capacity with its 24 C- and 24 Ku-band transponders for Intelsat’s video, corporate and consumer broadband customers in North America and in the Caribbean.

Regards Satdude.
