Eutelsat Communications (OTC:EUTLF) has entered into a service partnership with MediaMobil to offer maritime connectivity to hundreds of ships and offshore vessels worldwide. The deal, leveraging Eutelsat's ADVANCE solution—a global geostationary (GEO) network providing long-distance connectivity—will allow MediaMobil to benefit from a unique satellite network-as-a-service experience.

MediaMobil will now have access to Eutelsat Group's extensive GEO satellites fleet and robust terrestrial infrastructure, which includes 16 global gateways and several points of presence (PoPs) worldwide. This transition to a service leasing agreement aligns with Eutelsat's strategy and further strengthens MediaMobil's position as a premium VSAT services provider while reducing bandwidth costs for users.

Andreas Nil, CEO of MediaMobil, highlighted that the agreement would provide unparalleled connectivity to their fleet of more than 100 multipurpose vessels operating globally through high performance and High Throughput Satellites (HTS).

Eutelsat's OSS capabilities will also aid MediaMobil in developing integrated multi-orbit satellite services in conjunction with the LEO system, thereby enhancing the customer experience. Cyril Dujardin, Co-General Manager of Eutelsat Group's Connectivity Business Unit, expressed that MediaMobil's choice underscores the trust industries place in Eutelsat's satellite-as-a-service offering and fortifies their role in the maritime connectivity business.

This partnership is indicative of Eutelsat’s strategic shift from traditional provider-customer relationships towards service partnerships. Formed through the merger of Eutelsat Communications and OneWeb in 2023, Eutelsat Group became the first fully integrated GEO-LEO satellite operator with a fleet of 36 Geostationary satellites and a low Earth orbit (LEO) constellation of over 600 satellites. The Group serves customers in video distribution—distributing more than 6,500 television channels—mobile connectivity, fixed connectivity, and government services. With its headquarters in Paris, Eutelsat Group employs more than 1,700 people across over 50 countries and is committed to delivering safe, resilient, and environmentally sustainable connectivity.
