Oilcomm 2015

Join us at the annual OilComm Conference and Exhibition on November 4-5, to discuss with our experts how the SES global satellite and teleport network can support your business and challenges.

Oil & Gas production and exploration often happens in the most remote places and extreme conditions on Earth, making reliable, flexible and secure communications critical. But despite all these challenges,  satellite communications are key to the oil and gas industry. SES constantly adapts our fleet and services to extend our reach in regions that require offshore connectivity.

OilComm is the only event dedicated to the communications challenges faced in the oil and gas community throughout the lifecycle of the platform and no matter where the drill site is located. The conference will attract more than 1,300 attendees and more than 145 exhibitors in the Oil and Gas industry. This is an opportunity you won’t want to miss - learn from experts, and explore cutting-edge communications and network solutions.

SES is investing in a hybrid architecture to better serve our customer needs. Together with O3b, a company in which SES holds 45 per cent, we offer an essential advantage to customers with the combination of the satellite fleets at two orbits, the Geostationary Orbit (GEO) and the Medium Earth Orbit (MEO).

SES owns and operates more than 50 satellites in GEO. Combined with innovative High Throughput technology, this wide-beam GEO fleet is the ideal and proven infrastructure to cover large geographies efficiently with high-quality linear broadcast and with broadband and data solutions. O3b operates a dozen satellites in the lower MEO, where high speed data and broadband connections are possible with low latency and fiber-like speed.



About the satellite



With a scheduled launch in the second half of 2016, SES-10 will replace AMC-3 and AMC-4 to provide substantial capacity expansion over Latin America, with enhanced coverage of the Caribbean and South America, full coverage of the Gulf of Mexico and capability to switch the capacity between the three coverages. SES-10 will be ideal for a range of applications including DTH platforms, VSAT and government services, GSM backhaul and mobile broadband.



With complete coverage of the Gulf of Mexico, this satellite supports enterprise services, offshore maritime communications, in addition to DTH and broadcast services in the Caribbean.



The satellite provides a high-powered Ku-band beam and comprehensive C-band coverage over the US, Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico. This allows Oil & Gas companies to benefit from AMC-9’s wide and powerful coverage.



SES-15 is scheduled to be launched in the first half of 2017 will be located in a new orbital location to serve North America, Latin America and the Caribbean. SES-15 will enable SES to serve its leading aeronautical customers and serve other traffic-intensive data applications such as government, VSAT networks and maritime, with a combination of wide beams and HTS (High Throughput Satellite) multi-spot beams.



SES-14 will replace SES's satellite NSS-806 in the last half of 2017 and support new capacity over the Americas and the North Atlantic Region. The Ku-band wide beams will bring augmented capacity to serve growing video neighborhoods in the Americas and support existing VSAT services. The HTS (High Throughput Satellite) Ku-band multi-spot beams are ideal for traffic-intensive data applications such as mobile backhaul, maritime and aeronautical services.



The SES-12 satellite will expand SES’s capabilities in the last half of 2017 to provide direct-to-home (DTH) broadcasting, VSAT, Mobility and High Throughput Satellite (HTS) data connectivity services in the Asia-Pacific region, including rapidly growing markets such as India and Indonesia. The satellite will replace NSS-6 positioned at 95 degrees East, and will be co-located with SES-8.

With an established fleet of more than 50 satellites, SES provides a full range of satellite telecommunications, broadcasting and Internet services throughout the world. We are adding new satellites, new services and new networks to our existing repertoire, making SES your first choice for connectivity for mobility.
