SES-4 to bring incremental capacity over Latin America

Our Sales Vice President of Latin America & Caribbean, Dolores Martos

SES’ upcoming satellite SES-4 will bring additional capacity over Latin America. The satellite, which has been scheduled for launch in December 2011, will be the company’s 50th satellite.  

In an interview with ‘nPlay’ magazine, our sales vice president of Latin America & Caribbean, Dolores Martos, shares her team’s excitement about the upcoming launch of SES-4 satellite that is set to bring incremental capacity over the Latin American region and how the launch shows SES’ focus on emerging markets.

“SES recognises the importance of emerging economies; the telecommunication segment is growing exponentially. To satisfy the increasing demand for bandwidth and to meet the needs of our customers, we are opening new offices in Mexico and expanding our staff in Brazil,” she said.

“In 2013 we will launch another satellite, SES-6, which will bring increment capacity all over Latin America,” added Martos.

Latin America is among one of the fastest developing markets offering great potential for satellites to serve telcos to move towards satellite. The demand for cellular backhaul, HD-TV and DTH will provide room for satellite growth.

“We are creating a video community to serve the broadcasting market in Mexico,” noted Martos. “The new capacity will enable us to be ready to meet bandwidth demands when Brazil celebrates two transcendent events, the World Cup and the Olympic Games in 2014 and 2016 respectively.”

The interview took place at AndiCom in Cartagena, Colombia.
