O3b Networks Earns Via Satellite “Satellite Operator of the Year” Award at SATELLITE 2016
O3b Networks today announced that the company has been recognized as “Satellite Operator of the Year” in the 2015 Via Satellite Excellence Awards during SATELLITE 2016.
The Via Satellite Excellence Awards recognize innovative companies, technologies, campaigns, and people who shape the success of the global satellite industry. The Operator of the Year Award recognizes the satellite operator that made a significant impact in 2015 and plays a key role in keeping the industry thriving.
O3b Networks has dramatically broadened the satellite market, providing modern high-performance connectivity to areas that had previously thought such service was only possible with terrestrial fiber. To date, the company has 12 satellites in orbit that provide service to more than 40 customers in 31 countries. Recently, O3b ordered 8 more satellites to support growing demand.
The ultra-low latency, high throughput network, facilitated by O3b's Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite constellation provides connectivity to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to expand 3G and 4G/LTE services, enables Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to provide broadband internet to subscribers in remote locations, brings high-speed mobile and data connections to ships at sea, and allows Oil and Gas companies to reduce costs and improve efficiencies on deep water installations. O3b technology is also used worldwide to enable new business, government, education, and e-health initiatives.
“Today, access to the internet is fundamentally important, and we are proud to support our customers in providing the core connectivity that is driving social and economic development around the globe,” said Steve Collar, CEO of O3b Networks. “As a company, O3b has been fiercely dedicated to providing the best solutions for reliable connectivity in areas of the world that are beyond the reach of fiber. We are honored to be named Operator of the Year, and thank Via Satellite for this distinction.”
