Dejero has partnership with Intelsat. The collaboration provides broadcasters with a new blended cellular and Ku-band IP solution for live television coverage from remote locations.

Dejero CellSat leverages Dejero's patented network blending technology to combine cellular connectivity from multiple mobile network carriers with Ku-band IP connectivity provided by Intelsat. This gives CellSat users the required bandwidth and greater confidence to go live from virtually anywhere. If the bandwidth available from cellular connections dips due to network congestion or other factors, CellSat automatically blends in Ku-band IP satellite connectivity to boost bandwidth to the requested level for the live shot.

The Dejero CellSat solution includes pre-certified encoding and receiving equipment, network blending software, connectivity services to the CellSat network, cloud management, and 24/7 technical support.

Most satellite vehicles with existing Ka-band or Ku-band satellite equipment can be upgraded for compatibility with Dejero CellSat. Dejero CellSat is available in the United States and Canada, with rollout to other regions planned for 2018.

The Dejero CellSat solution communicates with the satellite terminal auto-acquire system to simplify the satellite connection process. There is no need to schedule satellite time, saving crews valuable time and removing the constraint of broadcasting within a certain time window. In addition to managing the fluctuating bandwidth of individual cellular connections, CellSat software dynamically allocates satellite bandwidth for optimal performance.

'Today's broadcasters are challenged with quickly producing high-quality, reliable television coverage in environments that run the gamut from sparsely populated in extremely remote areas to overcrowded with a congested network. Coupling Intelsat's high performing, ubiquitous Ku-band IP connectivity with Dejero's blended cellular technology will give broadcasters greater assurance when covering live events. Dejero CellSat was designed with simplicity in mind so crews can focus on setting up quickly and getting the live shot back to the broadcast facility and on the air.'
