SES Extends Global Reach of Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute with Multi-orbit Satellite Systems

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 12 settembre 2019

SES today announced it will provide dedicated, private network connectivity from any vessel, airplane, enterprise, energy or government site in the world to Microsoft Azure via its unique multi-orbit satellite systems.
As a partner of Azure ExpressRoute, SES will provide global reach and fibre-like high-performance to Azure customers via its complete portfolio of Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites, Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) O3b constellation, global gateway network, and core terrestrial network infrastructure around the world. SES will offer Azure customers opportunities to leverage its satellite-enabled managed services to connect locations and sites in rural, remote and underserved locations, as well as vessels and airplanes out at sea and in the skies that previously did not have access to cloud services.In addition to its global fleet of over 50 GEO satellites, SES also delivers managed data services over its proven O3b MEO satellite system, the only successful non-geostationary orbit (NGSO) broadband constellation. SES’s 20 O3b satellites comprise the only operational system today that can deliver fibre-equivalent, MEF-certified data connectivity services, and certified cloud connectivity services. The systems’ intelligent GEO- and MEO- orbit resilience that facilitate edge compute capabilities are key enablers in the seamless integration of high-performance satellite connectivity into Microsoft’s and their customers’ sites.In addition, Azure customers also will be able to tap into SES’s groundbreaking next-generation MEO communications system, O3b mPOWER. Launching in 2021, O3b mPOWER will deliver ten times the throughput of the existing O3b constellation with unprecedented flexibility and dynamic control to help drive global cloud adoption everywhere.

SES and ESA Set Up New Government Satcom Platform

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 24 novembre 2017

Satcom PlatformSES leads a European consortium of industry partners to sign an agreement with the European Space Agency (ESA) to set up Pacis-1, a new satellite communication platform for governments that is aimed at making secure satellite communications accessible and available to governments and institutions.
Pacis-1 is part of the ESA’s Govsatcom Precursor programme and is the first step in demonstrating how the European space industry can support the EU’s Govsatcom initiative and leverage governmental and commercial satellite services to provide secure access to satellite communications for a wide range of governmental applications. The project will demonstrate in-field usage of the system for civil protection, border control, humanitarian missions, maritime surveillance, among other applications.
Under the agreement, SES will put in place the architecture and service concept of Pacis-1, leveraging the space assets and ground infrastructure of the stakeholders involved in the project.Under the Pacis-1 public-private partnership, the members of the consortium will be providing specific technological contributions, including engineering, satellite capacity, commercial, project management and other services. Other industrial partners that have joined the SES-led consortium are Redu Space Services, GovSat, Newtec, QinetiQ and Tekever.“Pacis-1 is an excellent example of how a Public-Private Partnership at the national level – between a commercial operator and a Member State – can evolve in a wider European setting with the support of ESA, to prepare for EU Govsatcom. The pooling & sharing demonstrations are hosted in a European Centre of Excellence for space cyber security services, and may provide the Centre with the opportunity for an operational role in governmental secure Satcom at EU level,” said Carlo Elia, Head of the Telecommunications Technologies, Products and Systems Department, ESA.“The Pacis-1 project is a unique and truly innovative way to approach a partnership between the industry and ESA, and will pave the way for governments to have flexible access to secure satellite communications, in a cost-efficient way,” said Gerhard Bethscheider, Managing Director of SES TechCom Services, SES Networks. “As pioneers in the government satellite communications area, we are very proud to be part of Pacis-1 and we are very much looking forward to the demonstrations of the capabilities and end-to-end solutions which will take place as part of this project.” (photo: Satcom Platform)
