EUTELSAT 3B, tri-band capacity for maximum flexibility
EUTELSAT 3B is a tri-band satellite for markets in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and South America. Located at 3° East, the satellite is optimised for customers operating broadband, data, telecom and video services in a vast footprint spanning from Brazil to Central Asia.
With up to 51 transponders, EUTELSAT 3B offers satellite resources in Ku, C and Ka-band connected to fixed and steerable antennas for maximum flexibility. This enables users to select the most relevant frequency band for different types of service.
Ku and C-band capacity is optimised for broadcast and data markets.
High throughput beams in the Ka-band are ideal for innovative applications in bandwidth-demanding markets.
The EUTELSAT 3B satellite was launched in May 2014. It replaced the EUTELSAT 3D satellite which has been copositioned with EUTELSAT 7A at 7° East to provide expansion capacity and enhanced in-orbit security for data, telecom and video markets in Europe, Turkey and Africa.
Built by Airbus Defence and Space, the EUTELSAT 3B satellite is based on the Eurostar 3000 platform.
