The fifth of Intelsat’s Epic high throughput satellites, Intelsat-37e represents a significant evolution of our award-winning platform. IS-37e features enhanced power sharing technology which enables assignment of power between shaped, fixed and steerable spot Ku-band and Ka-band beams. This allows satellite operator Intelsat to optimize services to the requirements of in-demand applications, by region, delivering efficiency improvements for mobility and government customers in the Americas, Africa, and Europe.
IS-37e is the first satellite to offer interconnectivity between three different bands. The next-generation satellite delivers high performance in C-, Ku- and Ka-bands for use in wireless backhaul, enterprise VSAT and mobility networks.
The satellite was successfully launched on September 29th, 2017 on an Ariane 5ECA rocket booster operated by launch operator Arianespace from the Kourou Space Port in French Guyana.
