Satellite services provider Intelsat has implemented the ScheduALL Connector to allow customers to manage their occasional use (OU) capacity needs.

Utilising the solution, Intelsat says that strategic sales partners (SSPs) and media customers that use ScheduALL to manage their own assets can view available capacity and match it to their needs and reserve it directly from within their own system. The automated interface is claimed to enable media customers to manage bandwidth more effectively to quickly adapt and meet changing capacity needs during peak and off-peak cycles in demand.

In addition, it is said to improve operational efficiency by reducing the need to manually transfer data between different systems, as well as to reconcile booking and billing records. It is also attributed with helping customers better manage bandwidth fluctuation during satellite-based mission-critical disaster relief activities and major sports and entertainment events.

"As part of improving and automating our booking and scheduling process for OU services, ScheduALL Connector offers our strategic sales partners and customers an option to link directly with Intelsat's ScheduALL system to access real-time Intelsat capacity," said Peter Ostapiuk, head of media services, Intelsat. "This provides media customers the unique ability to directly locate and select the resources best suited for their needs. This is especially important during times when there is a huge peak in demand and additional capacity is needed."
