51 C, Ku and Ka-band transponders to provide video, data, Internet and telecom services across Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and parts of South America. A Ku-band payload of up to 30 transponders will be connected to widebeam footprints over extended Europe and East Africa. A steerable beam will add further flexibility, with coverage possible of South America or African regions. This capacity will address video contribution, corporate networks, data and telecom markets. A C-band payload with 12 transponders connected to a pan-African beam will respond to continued high demand for capacity for telecom services. A Ka-band payload of nine transponders connected to steerable beams that are in particular expected to cover Africa and South America will meet expanding connectivity requirements for corporate networks and Internet access.
