PanAmSat upbeat at Singapore Expo

SINGAPORE: It's got a pat on its back from the leading Telco mag in Asia and it is just about completing a decade in business in Asia. US satellite operator PanAmSat Corp executive vice president for global sales and marketing Mike Antonovich has every reason to be pleased. Panamsat is exhibiting at Communicasia 2004 in Singapore's Singapore Expo.

Says he, "As the company enters its second decade in the Asia-Pacific marketplace, PanAmSat continues to be recognised as the best satellite operator by customers, partners and now officially by the industry," said Antonovich. "By developing value-added, end-to-end solutions, extending our global network and building new agreements with key customers in the region, we continue to demonstrate our leadership. Most importantly we continue to improve the ways we service our customers on every continent with solutions that transmit broadcast programming, worldwide breaking news and critical business data anywhere, anytime."

The company has in recent times signed agreements with Japan's NHK to deliver live high-definition (HD) sporting events and breaking news via the company's global hybrid satellite and fiber network. It has launched PanAmSat On-Demand Asia service under which customers can hire satellite bandwidth - a satellite on demand. Facilitating the lowering of bandwidth costs, the product provides customers with the flexibility to pay for and utilise the satellite capacity on a per-usage basis. It has also inked a new fiber interconnectivity agreement with ST Teleport, a leading full-service satellite communications solution provider based in Singapore. The agreement extends the reach of the PanAmSat global network from Singapore to California, increasing the company's ability to deliver its customers' programming via satellite and fiber to and from the Asia-Pacific and North American regions.

To cap it all, it was also declared the satellite operator of 2004 by Telecom Asia magazine with the judging being done by The Yankee Group and a panel of experts. The award was based on the basis of financial performance, market leadership, technology innovation and corporate governance.
