September 15, 2013 06.05 Europe/London By Robert Briel

SES has announced today its new extensive Global Access Network, consisting of SES-owned and 3rd party partner teleports, fibre-based network and points of presence, that will allow its customers to have access to SES’ global fleet and its value added services.

The fibre-based network, based on MPLS technology, is designed to transport any video or data signal from practically any city in the world to one of 19 SES-owned teleports or partner teleports via SES points of presence for transmission to SES satellites. At the teleports, customers will have access to SES Global Access Services, which include video and data uplink and downlink services, full DVB transport stream uplinks, VNO platform service, DVB data service, and SCPC data service, among others.

“Since 2012, the SES Global Access Services team has been working to extend the SES network and reach by engaging selected partner teleports and fibre providers. The new SES Global Access Network integrates SES’ existing teleports into a unified single network to provide our customers with global connectivity regardless of where they are,” said Ferdinand Kayser, CCO at SES.

“At SES, we believe by making it easy for our customers to seamlessly access our fleet through our SES Global Access Services, they can focus on achieving their business ambitions in their markets.”
