TinSky Connect (PTY) LTD announced on 2 July 2021 that it is now offering the Intelsat FlexMove managed service for ubiquitous, high-speed connectivity. With FlexMove, TinSky Connect’s customers can easily connect to the internet, private data networks and cloud services from virtually anywhere in the world, including while on-the-move (COTM) or on-the-pause (COTP) at a temporary site.
“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,” said TinSky’s Executive Director, Alan Geldenhuys. The TinSky Group is excited to partner with Intelsat to offer an industry-first, high-throughput, ubiquitous connectivity solution.”
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. In addition, it offers global, multi-layered, redundant coverage that enables even the most data-intensive applications.
“Intelsat welcomes the TinSky Group as a valued FlexMove solution partner,” said Intelsat Director for Land Mobile, Joel Schroeder. “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. Service plans are designed for recurring, seasonal, occasional and, event-based uses. Users can pool airtime and share data costs across multiple terminals, making FlexMove a cost-effective connectivity solution for organisations with large vehicle fleets and numerous remote locations. TinSky is offering a promotion on FlexMove (comms-on-the-pause) terminals supplied at no charge if the customer signs up for a qualifying monthly services plan. TinSky also provides FlexMove Kymeta (on-the-move) platforms with a significant discount on the hardware and installation cost if the customer signs up for a monthly FlexMove service.
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.
