CETel will leverage the O3b fleet’s low latency and high throughput capabilities for big data applications required by the exploration and production industry. With round trip latencies below 150 milliseconds, MEO-enabled networks are on par with standard fibre connections, and are more reliable and faster to deploy than other infrastructure.
The inking of this MEO deal with SES Networks empowers CETel to serve new applications where lower-latency connectivity matters, and to complement the comprehensive and versatile business applications it currently serves today.
Guido Neumann, Managing Director of CETel, said, “CETel is delighted to be one of the first European service providers to use SES Networks’ MEO fleet and is proud to add fibre-like connectivity to our existing service and product portfolio. This is yet another example of a successful collaboration between SES Networks and CETel in the delivery of managed end-to-end communications solutions. Once again, CETel demonstrates that we are ready to adopt latest technology. We see MEO connectivity as an ideal extension that complements connectivity delivered by established GEO satellites. The fleets have their own unique capabilities and are suited for different applications that will help meet the growing demands of content and data delivery.”
Simon Gatty Saunt, Head of EMEA Fixed Data Sales at SES Networks, said, “CETel has been a long-term strategic partner of SES since 2005, and we are excited to extend CETel’s array of connectivity solutions with this latest agreement. Depending on their customers’ needs, CETel will be able to deliver the ideal solution in a cost-effective manner.”
SES is the world-leading satellite operator and the first to deliver a differentiated and scalable GEO-MEO offering worldwide, with more than 50 satellites in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and 12 in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). SES focuses on value-added, end-to-end solutions in two key business units: SES Video and SES Networks. The company provides satellite communications services to broadcasters, content and internet service providers, mobile and fixed network operators, governments and institutions. SES’s portfolio includes ASTRA, O3b and MX1, a leading media service provider that offers a full suite of innovative digital video and media services. SES is listed on the Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange (ticker: SESG). Further information available at: www.ses.com
