SES and Azure ExpressRoute

Global reach at cloud scale

SES Networks

Enterprises adopting intelligent cloud and intelligent edge technology need to be able to fully capitalise on the benefits – regardless of where they are located. SES has joined forces with Microsoft to bring the Azure cloud platform to any global endpoint, whether in the air, at sea or on land.

More about SES and Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute

Our role as an ExpressRoute-over-satellite launch partner means Azure customers everywhere are just one hop away from their most essential cloud services and applications.

Unrivalled connectivity for cloud computing solutions

We operate the industry’s only multi-band, multi-orbit fleet, which means we afford Azure customers unrivaled flexibility to maximise performance of cloud workloads and applications. Enterprise and government sites can match their own unique mix of cloud and edge services to the right level of connectivity, whether MEO or GEO. We can deliver robust service level agreements covering availability, throughput and latency that can extend from Azure data centers or edge compute nodes to any customer endpoint.

As the first satellite operator to adopt ONAP on Azure, we are designing an agile, cloud-scale operational environment in which ExpressRoute customers can activate high-impact virtualised network functions (VNFs) quickly and easily.
