Intelsat 907 launched aboard Ariane 44L vehicle

WASHINGTON, DC: Intelsat announced today that the Intelsat 907 satellite was successfully launched aboard an Ariane 44L vehicle at 2:00 EST . The satellite is expected to be operational this March.

The Intelsat 907 launch is the seventh in an eight-satellite campaign to replace and to enhance system capacity by the end of 2003. The 907 satellite will be deployed at 332.5?E and will offer capacity for telephony, corporate networks, Internet, video and hybrid space/terrestrial solutions to customers on its 76 C-band and 22 Ku-band transponders (measured in 36 MHz equivalent units).

The satellite will provide high power Ku-band spot beam coverage for Western Europe and West Africa and additional C-band capacity to customers in the Americas, Europe and Africa.

The high power and coverage area of the Intelsat 907 satellite makes it ideal to support corporate VSATs, broadcast content distribution and broadband applications, including high-speed Internet access, multicasting and streaming.

Intelsat CEO Conny Kullman stated:"The successful launch of the Intelsat 907 represents the completion of our IX Series launches. Launching seven satellites in twenty months is a huge accomplishment for Intelsat and for our customers worldwide who are the beneficiaries of the enhanced coverage and increased power of these spacecraft. Moreover, the Intelsat 907 will be located in a prime orbital slot to provide Africa with a robust, ever-expanding video community."

The Intelsat 907 satellite will replace the Intelsat 605, which currently holds the 332.5?E orbital slot but will be moved to a new location at 330.5?E to support additional customer demand also in the Americas, Europe and Africa.

Intelsat offers telephony, corporate network, video and Internet solutions around the globe via capacity on 26 geosynchronous satellites in prime orbital locations. Customers in approximately 200 countries and territories rely on Intelsat satellites and staff for quality connections, global reach and reliability.
