SES WORLD SKIES + Axesat... Capacity Provisioning (SATCOM)
SES WORLD SKIES, a division of SES S.A. (Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange: SESG), has a new capacity deal with Axesat that's aimed at meeting escalating corporate service demand across Latin America and the Caribbean. Axesat is using two transponders aboard SES’ AMC-4 satellite at 67 degrees West to provide business voice, data and internet access services to companies in Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Ecuador, Central America and the Caribbean. SES deployed the AMC-4 spacecraft to the 67 degrees West orbital slot in September 2010, as part of an agreement with the Andean Community of Nations (CAN) to deliver much needed high power Ku-band capacity to the Andean region. This new capacity is enabling the immediate expansion of many voice, data, Internet and video networks in the Andean countries, Central America, México and the Caribbean.
