Intelsat is the leading provider of Fixed Satellite Services (FSS) worldwide. Intelsat needed to provide its global workforce with LAN-like application access so that they could enhance customer service and responsiveness. At the same time, the company underwent profound changes: it expanded its footprint with the acquisition of PanAmSat, and completed a global IT consolidation project as well. After looking at other products and also considering bandwidth upgrades, Intelsat chose to deploy Steelhead appliances to its 20 locations worldwide. Steelhead appliances not only provided the best performance compared to the alternatives, but also the easiest integration and ongoing management.
