WESTERN UNION FIRST TO USE INTELSAT BUSINESS SERVICE

By CBR Staff Writer

Western Union Corp has become the first telecommunications company to use the new Intelsat Business Service to provide high-speed commercial trans-Pacific digital transmission service to Japan in partnership with Kokusai Denshin Denwa Co: the first connection is being made for NEC Corp, which wants a leased circuit link between its Mountain View, California, offices and its corporate headquarters in Tokyo; using its own T-Carrier digital facilities, Western Union carries NEC’s transmissions from Mountain View to the Comsat Technical Operations Center in downtown San Francisco, and the signal is then sent to an IBS earth station at Niles Canyon in the Bay area, uplinked to one of Intelsat’s Pacific Ocean satellites, and downlinked to the earthstation in downtown Tokyo.
