28 C-band (failed) and 24 Ku-band 36 MHz transponder units to deliver wireless backhaul, broadband and television programming to part of Europe, Middle East, Africa and Sub-Saharan regions. Shortly after the launch Intelsat determined that the satellite’s C-band antenna reflector had not successfully deployed most likely due to a malfunction of the reflector sun shield. As a result, the sun shield interfered with the ejection release mechanism and thus prevented the deployment of the C-band antenna.
