SES has announced new partnerships today at CommunicAsia that will help developing and developed APAC and Middle East economies leverage Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite solutions. Through expanded agreements with leading mobile network operators in the regions, SES promises faster and improved mobile and Internet services for people, businesses and communities, even in the most remote or inaccessible regions.
SES announced a partnership with Our Telekom, a major operator in the Solomon Islands’. The telco leverages SES’ GEO fleet to bring connectivity services to even the farthest ends of the islands. The comprehensive GEO coverage adds a layer of greater reliability – complementing the fibre-like Internet speeds already enjoyed by the local population on SES’ MEO network.
It has also announced an agreement with Wateen Telecom to bring enhanced voice and data signals in remote mountainous areas in the north and inaccessible southern regions of Pakistan, delivered via SES Networks’ high performance GEO connectivity.
Earlier this month (20 Jun), Office des Postes et Telecommunications of French Polynesia (OPT) and SES Networks inked a deal to bring improved mobile broadband and Internet services, reaching the sprawling Polynesian archipelago of 118 islands in the South Pacific and beyond.
