EUTELSAT KONNECT satellite successfully launched aboard Ariane 5 rocket. View from the beach of Anse, Cayenne (French Guiana)

On 16 January 2020, Eutelsat launched its new-generation High Throughput Satellite offering unprecedented operational flexibility. The all-electric satellite is the first to use Thales Alenia Space's new Spacebus Neo platform.

 

This high-capacity broadband satellite will deliver significant resources for broadband services across Europe and Africa and set a new benchmark for flexibility in High Throughput Satellites.

 

Providing 75 Gbps of capacity across a network of 65 spotbeams, which together provide quasi-complete coverage of Sub-Saharan Africa, the satellite will address direct-to-user consumer and enterprise broadband services using dishes from approximately 75 cm. It will also be used for community networks connected to Wi-Fi hotspots, mobile phone backhauling and rural connectivity.
