Intelsat S.A. has accepted its second Boeing 702MP (Medium Power) satellite, Intelsat 21, which was launched Aug. 18 and is enhancing Intelsat's broadcast and communications services throughout four continents.

Boeing introduced the 702MP spacecraft line in 2009 to meet customer requirements for satellites with 6 to 12 kilowatts of power.

The 702MP provides the high capability of the flight-proven Boeing 702HP (High Power) model, but with a modified bus structure and a simplified propulsion system.

"Intelsat 21 has entered service and is enabling Intelsat to expand its global mobility network for maritime and aeronautical customers," said Craig Cooning, CEO of Boeing Satellite Systems International and vice president of Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems.

"This 702MP is the second Boeing-built satellite to be accepted by Intelsat in just four months' time."

Replacing Intelsat 9, Intelsat 21 features mobility services spanning the Atlantic Ocean to Europe, Africa and South America.

Designed to provide more than 15 years of service, Intelsat 21 also hosts a leading C-band video distribution neighborhood for Latin America with connectivity from Europe and North America.

Its Ku-band service will serve direct-to-home programmers in Mexico and corporate network customers in Brazil. Intelsat's global broadband mobility platform is set for completion in early 2013.
