Eutelsat, The Switch partner for global satellite and fiber network

Satellite operator Eutelsat has partnered with The Switch to provide a new, independent offer delivering a satellite and fiber video contribution network. This will provide content producers and distributors with the ability to transmit feeds on a minute-by-minute basis to and from large parts of the globe.
Simultaneously, broadcasters and content producers within Eutelsat’s satellite footprint will gain access to The Switch’s extensive global fibre network, including 53 physical points-of-presence, as well as connections to U.S. tech leaders, major global broadcasters and more than 180 sports organizations, venues and rights holders.
This partnership leverages the resources of three Eutelsat satellites covering Europe, Africa and the Americas. In a press release, Eutelsat said that further satellites may be added in the future to extend the reach of the solution.
