CNH and Intelsat collaborate to improve web connectivity in remote locations

April 30, 2024

CNH and Intelsat, operator of integrated satellite and terrestrial communication networks, announced a collaboration that will provide farmers ubiquitous access to the internet via a satellite communications (SATCOM) service.

Based on a new memorandum of understanding, Intelsat will provide multi-orbit internet access to connect CNH equipment working in remote locations and easy-to-use satellite terminals ready to handle the challenging environment on a farm.

With 60 years’ experience in SATCOM, Intelsat’s capabilities span geosynchronous and low-Earth orbits, offering Case IH, Steyr and New Holland customers SATCOM coverage via a rigorously tested terminal that connects easily and is proven to withstand extreme weather conditions and the vibration and shock produced by farming equipment and activity.

This offering will be first available in the second half of 2024 to farmers in Brazil where Case IH and New Holland dealers will install and support Intelsat’s hardware and service activation. Subsequently, the companies plan to expand their collaboration to the U.S., Australia, and other regions.

“Intelsat’s collaboration with CNH will unlock new capabilities in the most remote locations through our global communications platform,” said Dave Wajsgras, CEO of Intelsat. “We’ve proven that ruggedized, built-for-purpose terminals that can access multiple satellite orbits from anywhere on Earth offer the highest network reliability, greater throughput and the best user experience.”
