With cloud adoption increasing worldwide, SES Networks is collaborating with IBM to help ensure that applications and solutions can be deployed on the IBM Cloud to markets that currently have limited connectivity due to unreliable or non-existent terrestrial networks. SES Networks’ O3b Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite network delivers improved resilience and always-on managed connectivity services to IBM Cloud customers.

The O3b constellation is the only non-geostationary satellite system today that delivers broadband connectivity with fibre-like performance. O3b broadband solutions are the only satellite-enabled services that are MEF CE 2.0 certified. The certification in all CE 2.0 service types recognises SES Networks’ ability to offer MEF-compliant service level agreements for key attributes such as latency, jitter and throughput.

With SES Networks' connectivity and IBM Cloud’s global data center footprint and services, clients will be able to build and run a wide range of applications and use cases for the digital era. This includes low-latency cloud services, optimised IoT and AI solutions, dedicated private or remote connectivity, rapid deployment of connectivity services and continuous emergency preparedness strategies, among others.

“Together with our Direct Link service providers, IBM is helping enterprises securely and reliably connect to the cloud and take advantage of high value services including AI, IoT and analytics,” said Gabe Montanti, Global Offering Executive, IBM Cloud. “The collaboration with SES Networks can help customers connect to the cloud globally especially those in underserved regions of the world.”

“As cloud services become a cornerstone of the digital era, ubiquitous high-capacity, low-latency connectivity to the cloud from virtually anywhere in the world is paramount to everything from enterprise productivity and revenue growth to consumer end user satisfaction,” said John-Paul Hemingway, CEO of SES Networks. “We are excited to team with IBM Cloud to meet these growing cloud connectivity demands. With performance that rivals the terrestrial fibre connectivity, our standards-based O3b fleet is designed to make satellite a seamless ‘plug-and-play’ connectivity option for robust solutions for cloud leaders like IBM Cloud.”
