Paris, 8 November 2023 – Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris, London Stock Exchange; ETL) has been selected by MediaMobil, a telecommunications company improving internet access to remote locations, to provide maritime connectivity to hundreds of ships and off-shore vessels around the globe. MediaMobil will benefit from Eutelsat ADVANCE solution, a global GEO network of unparalleled coverage facilitating long-distance connectivity and an innovative satellite network-as-a-service managed experience.

This deal gives MediaMobil access to the vast fleet of geostationary (GEO) satellites owned and operated by Eutelsat Group, and to its robust terrestrial infrastructure, from a set of 16 global gateways to the multiple points of presence (PoPs) positioned across the planet. Operating through this GEO infrastructure, Eutelsat ADVANCE is a cost-effective and rapidly deployable solution that provides long-distance connectivity and flexible bandwidth to a variety of market needs across maritime, government, aviation and private enterprises.

MediaMobil is a long-term user of Eutelsat capacity services, and today confirms its shift towards a service leasing agreement, a shift aligned with Eutelsat’s own strategy.

Andreas Nil, CEO from MediaMobil commented: “Our agreement with Eutelsat OneWeb brings unparalleled connectivity to our fleet of more than 100 multipurpose, tanker and offshore construction vessels operating globally today, through access to a fleet of high performance and High Throughput Satellites (HTS) around the world. The service license agreement will enable MediaMobil to further develop its position as provider of premium VSAT services while reducing the bandwidth costs for the users. The Eutelsat OSS capabilities will also facilitate MediaMobil’s development of integrated multi-orbit satellite services in conjunction with the LEO system which will bring a unique Quality-of-Experience to our customers.”

Cyril Dujardin, Eutelsat Group Co-General Manager of the Connectivity Business Unit, added: “MediaMobil’s decision to use Eutelsat’s ADVANCE network is a clear indication of the trust that industries hold in Eutelsat’s satellite-as-a-service offering, and solidifies our position as an indispensable player in the booming maritime connectivity business. This deal also signals the successful deployment of our strategy to enter into service partnerships; a model that allows us to form mutually-beneficial partnerships in place of provider-customer relationships.”

The space industry should reach $1 trillion in annual revenue by 2040, according to a report by Citibank analysts. At the same time, a recent report from Inmarsat and Globant estimates the world could reach net zero up to ten years ahead of the 2050 target if industries make the most of existing and emerging space-based satellite technology. Suffice to say, space can offer an array of solutions for sustainability, security and connectivity. Mobile communications have evolved from generation to generation, adding better capabilities, and the trend is far from being over. The sixth generation is already in the making, and the core driving factors for 6G will revolve around enhancing human communication, including immersive experience, telepresence, multimodal collaboration and interaction. 6G will also aim to enhance machine communication, with the focus on autonomous machines and vehicles capable of sensing their surrounding environment in real time (network as a sensor). This article expands on how small satellites will augment the future of communications that starts already today.
