TinSky leverages Intelsat FlexMove, for universal satellite connectivity

Satellite hardware and technical services provider TinSky Connect has partnered with satellite connectivity giant Intelsat, to offer the Intelsat FlexMove managed service for ubiquitous, high-speed connectivity.

According to a statement to the media, with the availability of FlexMove, TinSky Connect’s African customers can now easily connect to the internet, private data networks and cloud services from virtually anywhere in the world, including while on-the-move, or on-the-pause at a temporary site. 

Alan Geldenhuys, Executive Director at TinSky said, “With the Intelsat FlexMove service, we can help our customers quickly and easily deploy mission-critical communications and maintain a seamless connection to the people and applications they rely on.”

The “always-on” FlexMove connectivity solution from TinSky Connect is up to 20 times faster than current mobile satellite solutions (MSS) for a fraction of the cost, noted the statement. It offers global, multi-layered, redundant coverage that enables even the most data-intensive applications.  

Also commenting, Joel Schroeder, Director for Land Mobile at Intelsat said, “Intelsat welcomes the TinSky Group as a valued FlexMove solution partner. With the global, high-throughput FlexMove service, TinSky’s diverse African customers can seamlessly connect with confidence ― even in the most remote or challenging locations.” 

TinSky Connect is now offering FlexMove service plans that are sold by the gigabyte (GB). These plans are seamlessly integrated with a portfolio of qualified satellite terminals empowering even non-technical personnel to set-up and connect to the internet in just minutes, added the statement.

Users can pool airtime and share data costs across multiple terminals, making FlexMove a cost-effective connectivity solution for organizations with large vehicle fleets and numerous remote locations.

FlexMove services for COTM applications use a flat-panel compact, vehicle-mounted satellite terminal that automatically acquires a connection and maintains communication while the vehicle is moving.

The FlexMove COTP service uses a highly compact and portable satellite terminal with an automatic or assisted pointing function to connect to a satellite. Connectivity choices include a public internet connection or a private IP solution to access a customer’s network, concludes the statement.
