EUTELSAT 117 WEST B is a geostationary satellite operating along the equator at 116.8 degrees West longitude, where it will join a sister spacecraft launched in 2013. Equipped with 48 Ku-band transponders, Eutelsat 117 West B's four distinct regional beams will provide premium coverage of Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, South America and the Southern Cone. The satellite will strengthen video capacities at 117 degrees west and offer key services to telecom operators and government service providers in Latin America. The spacecraft's capabilities will also serve the direct broadcast market in Latin America. Eutelsat 117 West B also hosts a navigation beacon for the Federal Aviation Administration, adding a replacement node to a fleet of GPS augmentation payloads carried by commercial satellites in geostationary orbit.
