The remote farmland throughout Brazil will be connected by ruggedized, multi-orbit satellite terminals of Intelsat and the farm equipment of CNH, during the third quarter of the year. 

In Brazil, less than a quarter of farmland is close enough to a cellular tower to make connection possible, Intelsat explained in a press release.

Also, connected smart farms or “precision farming” requires robust connectivity to stream data among farm equipment and from the equipment to the cloud.

In this respect, Intelsat FlexMove satellite network is giving end users the reliable connectivity needed to adopt connected equipment and to bring on the next great agricultural revolution.

The ruggedized, built-for-purpose terminals that can access multiple satellite orbits from anywhere offer the highest network reliability, greater throughput, and the best user experience, explained Dave Wajsgras, CEO of Intelsat. 

“As the first satellite communications company to provide multi-orbit connectivity to farmers around the world, Intelsat’s collaboration with CNH will unlock new capabilities in the most remote locations through our global communications platform,” said Wajsgras.

Essentially, Intelsat is investing in infrastructure to provide a new level of service throughout the country.

Intelsat’s Brazil Network Operations Center (NOC) has grown in staff to deliver better support for regional customers and has launched two satellites positioned over Brazil and Latin America to provide reliable connectivity.

“Satellite technology helps solve the complex connectivity challenges for hard-to-reach farms, but not all providers are equal. Intelsat stands out for their depth of experience as well as the quality and reliability of their service and industrial terminal offerings. We look forward to serving customers around the world with their solution,” said Marc Kermisch, Chief Digital and Information Officer at CNH.
