Telstar 11N

Launched in February 2009, Telstar 11N is a powerful Ku-band satellite built for Telesat, the world's fourth largest fixed satellite services operator. Telstar 11N connects three continents: North America, Western Europe, and Africa. In addition, its unique Atlantic Ocean beam supports growing demand for mobile broadband from maritime and aeronautical markets. The reach of Telstar 11N across the Atlantic meets the needs of commercial and government customers seeking solutions for IP networking and transport of video content. The satellite is equipped with 39 active Ku-band transponders, a portion of which can be switched to meet changing market demand over the satellite's 15-year design life.
