SES Combines GEO and O3b MEO Connectivity with new SES Plus Offering
SES has launched a new satellite data network called SES Plus that melds the operator’s geostationary (GEO) capabilities with those of O3b Networks’ Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites. SES Plus brings to market customized products and solutions from both satellite systems, combining GEO wide-beams and upcoming High Throughput Satellite (HTS) payloads with MEO HTS connectivity.
SES’ first Plus product, Enterprise+ Broadband, launched across five markets in Africa this past November. The service offers up to 1 Gbps of connectivity with plug-and-play and pay-as-you-go options to ensure the service can go live quickly. SES also plans continued investments in ground infrastructure to ensure easy accessibility to space.
