FREMONT, CA: SES, a provider of telecommunications services, announces partnership with Gilat, a telecommunications services provider, to launch the SES Enterprise + Hybrid Broadband solutions in Asia, powered by Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c Libra.

By integrating SES’s satellite network for download traffic and using the existing terrestrial network for upload traffic, customers will be able to realize increased download speeds in regions previously having poor connectivity. The service delivered through Gilat’s hybrid terminal leverages the existing network for the return channel while allowing downloads via SES’s satellites.

The SES Enterprise + Hybrid Broadband solution includes SES-9’s capacity and Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c Libra hybrid terminal which aims to provide broadband internet connectivity to areas which are underserved and also improve download speeds. The solutions will offer download speeds of up to 20 Mbps.

The services aims to target mobile network operators wanting to offload congested traffic network and provide customers higher data transfer speeds. It is also suitable for DTH providers who want to deliver triple play services of the internet, television and telephony to customers.

“We believe the satellite-cellular-terrestrial hybrid approach represents a huge opportunity in Asia,” says Ferdinand Kayser, Chief Commercial Officer at SES. “DTH providers will be able to use their existing satellite infrastructure and distribution channels to offer triple-play services to improve customer loyalty and reduce churn. In addition, MNOs can offer the hybrid broadband service leveraging their cellular networks and boost them with more capacity, thus significantly improving broadband penetration to underserved areas.”

“We are excited to be partnering with SES again on our novel satellite-cellular hybrid initiative,” adds Ron Levin, Director of Strategic Accounts at Gilat. “The endorsement of one of the world’s largest satellite operators is testament to our innovative technology.”
