SES-12: Elevating Experience in Asia

Discover the heart of opportunity in the world’s most dynamic region

The demand for data in the Asia-Pacific region is at an all-time high, according to PWC. It’s providing new opportunities for growth for a huge range of businesses. From telcos and mobile network operators to governments and mobility providers, those who act fast will reap the rewards from a huge market that’s waiting to be served. SES-12, our new and most advanced Geostationary satellite, can help you to meet this demand.

Thriving Sectors

Fixed Data

With over 3 billion mobile connections, 4G will become the lead mobile network technology in 2019 and will continue to dominate until 2025. Enterprises such as banks can combine the High-Throughput (HTS) payload and wide-beam coverage of SES-12 to achieve greater efficiency.


With IFC revenues of $1bn forecast for airlines in 2018, SES-12 is here to empower service providers to address soaring connectivity demands in the aviation sector. Over 4m cruise passengers in Asia in 2017 means that there's opportunity in the maritime sector, too.
