EUTELSAT 172B is a new high-capacity satellite delivering increased capacity for fast-growing applications in Asia Pacific, including in-flight and maritime connectivity, cellular backhaul, corporate networks, video and government services.
Located at the key 172° neighbourhood, the satellite provides exceptional land and sea reach over Asia Pacific, from Alaska to Australia.
The EUTELSAT 172B satellite is a triple mission satellite with three distinct payloads:
- A trans-Pacific C-band payload delivering increased power and broader coverage to enhance the service previously provided to customers via EUTELSAT 172A as well as reach new growth markets in South East Asia;
- A regular Ku-band payload which doubles capacity at 172° East and connects five improved service areas: North Pacific, North East Asia, South East Pacific, South West Pacific and South Pacific;
- An innovative High Throughput Ku-band payload designed for in-flight broadband with multiple spot beams optimised to serve densely-used Asian and trans-Pacific flight paths.
