Performance Above All

What happened the last time your satellite service let you down? What was the fallout, and how long did it take to fix?

When connectivity is critical, ‘best effort’ is not enough. Delays and outages risk reputation, operations, and even safety. That is why we designed O3b mPOWER – our next-generation MEO constellation – to deliver ironclad performance.

This is not marketing talk. Our service level agreement is not a claim but a guarantee, delivering industry-beating throughput, latency, availability and flexibility. It is the only choice when downtime is not optional.

When connectivity is non-negotiable

Does your provider deliver the three essentials of satellite performance?


Redefining throughput

Multiple gigabits per second.
Contention should not limit ambition. O3b mPOWER guarantees the highest throughput per terminal on the market. Unlike others, SES gives you the option of uncontended bandwidth so you can confidently scale your systems at any time.


Dependable latency

150 milliseconds of satellite latency over large areas.
Know what you are getting. MEO’s wide field of view means traffic reaches O3b mPOWER in one reliable hop, providing consistency for latency-sensitive cloud services. Such predictability is impossible for erratic, multi-hop LEO journeys, which suffer jitter and packet loss.


Unique flexibility

Route and re-route your bandwidth for maximum efficiency.
O3b mPOWER puts you in control of your bandwidth. Land traffic at one of our managed gateways or a bespoke private location. Re-balance forward and return paths and port capacity between locations as your needs change.

Connectivity advantage equals competitive advantage

Outperforming with O3b mPOWER

How will O3b mPOWER transform your industry?

With O3b mPOWER, digitalisation will transform operations, data will rule decision-making, and no part of the world will be unreachable.

what makes O3b mPOWER different and better

What makes O3b mPOWER unique

Predictable low latency

Our intentional balance of global coverage and orbital distance enable the most reliable non-geostationary orbit (NGSO) system, optimized to reduce jitter and packet loss.

Unprecedented flexibility

O3b mPOWER drives efficiency in your network and helps reduce costs. Flex bandwidth between sites when and where needed and direct traffic via the most efficient route.

Industry leading scale

O3b mPOWER scales up to multiple gigabits per second per terminal, and can even scale the return path to match or even exceed the forward path, a first in satellite communications. Keep up with the global rise in demand for upload speed.

What would you do with unlimited scale and performance, anywhere in the world?
