O3b mPOWER: TECHNOLOGY
The innovation driving unparalleled flexibility, performance, and scale
Designed for today’s data
O3b mPOWER is specifically designed for a data-dependent world. Building on the commercial success of our current O3b MEO system, we’ve harnessed innovations in space, ground, and software systems to deliver unparalleled flexibility, performance, and scale.
Designed with Boeing, software-defined satellites respond dynamically to user demand. Electronically steered phased-array antennas support thousands of beams per satellite, each scaling from 40Mbps to 10Gbps. The constellation’s multi-terabit capacity means it is ready for tomorrow’s data needs.
We constantly innovate with our ground technology partners to set new standards of performance and reliability. New terminal systems enable bandwidth with a wide variety of antenna sizes and form factors. Meanwhile, users can choose to land traffic at a managed or private gateway, or a cloud data centre.
The Adaptive Resource Control (ARC) system is your network’s control centre, synchronising space and ground systems to allocate bandwidth when and where needed. It delivers traffic via the most efficient route, including (when needed) to our next generation of GEO satellites for added resilience.
