O3b mPOWER newsroom: Driving a new era in cloud-scale connectivity
Written on 30 Mar 2020
SES's O3b mPOWER communications system comprises an initial constellation of seven high-throughput and low-latency satellites and extensive ground infrastructure. The global terabit-level scalable constellation, when launched in 2021, will operate in the medium earth orbit (MEO) that is 8,000km away from earth.
The fully-funded O3b mPOWER system generates thousands of dynamic beams to enable delivery of data connectivity services to telecommunications, maritime, aeronautical, and energy, as well as governments and institutions across the world. It will enable dedicated services up to 10Gbps more dynamically than any other existing system.
