The rocket is loaded with two space vehicles: Eutelsat Konnect for the operator Eutelsat, and GSAT-30 for the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).
According to the French-based space company, Eutelsat Konnect will be the 34th Eutelsat satellite launched by Arianespace since its first mission for this operator, which deployed Eutelsat-1 F1 in 1983.
The cutting-edge vehicle is designed "to provide Internet access services for companies and individuals alike at up to 100 Mbps. The satellite will help to fight against the digital divide by bringing broadband Internet across 40 countries in Africa and 15 countries across Western Europe".
India's vehicle GSAT-30 is a telecommunications satellite that will "provide high-quality television, telecommunications and broadcasting services over Indian mainland and Islands".
The 107th Ariane 5 mission, which also marks the company's 40-year anniversary since its creation, will be broadcast live.
