O3b mPOWER is SES’s second-generation MEO constellation. It is built on the proven track record of SES’s current O3b constellation of 20 MEO satellites. The O3b system has been delivering high-performance communications services since 2014 to customers operating in nearly 50 countries today.

Our Customers

The O3b mPOWER system is capable of delivering reliable connectivity services with guaranteed high-throughput, ranging from 50Mbps to multiple gigabits per second to mobile network operators, cruises, energy companies, as well as governments and institutions across the world.

Technology Ecosystem

We work with various technology partners ranging from satellite manufacturer and launcher to software companies and modem partners to from an ecosystem designed to deliver unprecedented performance.


Watch as we countdown to the launch with our partners.

SES has partnered with teleport providers in different regions to host as many as eight O3b mPOWER ground stations across the world (some co-located with Microsoft’s Azure data centres). Depending on our customers’ needs, more gateways can also be built.

Together with partners such as Kythera, Amdocs, Amartus and Amphinicy Technologies, we are developing a cutting-edge software that spans across O3b mPOWER’s infrastructure to unlock the system’s full potential and bring new levels of flexibility, automation and frequency allocation depending on our customer’s needs.

More than a decade ago, SES made an initial investment into O3b Networks and marked its first step into lower earth orbit constellations. Today, building on the success of our O3b Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites, we began to launch our next-gen communications system – O3b mPOWER. With every milestone, we're reimagining how we connect the world!
