LUXEMBOURG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. October 2022–
With unprecedented demand for high-performance mobile connectivity in the Amazon’s most isolated communities, SES announced today that it has signed a multi-year capacity extension with Claro Brasil through Embratel, its enterprise solutions division, to deliver enhanced 4G/5G Ready services across its O3b mPOWER network, SES’ next-generation Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) communications system, serves the telco in at least eight of 23 cities across the region via SES’ multi-orbit satellite network.
Under the terms of the renewal agreement, Embratel could leverage 4Gbps over SES’ O3b mPOWER network to extend its high-performance mobile backhaul service with this cutting-edge technology, serving more than 260,000 residents across eight Amazonian cities. SES will continue to serve other communities in the region with SES geostationary (GEO) satellite-based backhaul capacity.
Embratel has relied on an increasing number of SES satellite services over the past five years to meet the universal service requirements of the Brazilian National Telecommunications Authority (Anatel) in support of communities in the Amazon – the most remote region of Brazil. Embratel has increased its SES capacity requirements from an initial 250Mbps serving four cities to 5.5Gbps GEO and MEO bandwidth to support 23 cities. For example, thanks to the flexibility offered by O3b, SES’ current generation MEO system, some sites have grown to over 500 Mbit/s.
By leveraging SES’ mPOWERED mobile backhaul service, a solution provided through O3b mPOWER, Embratel would also be able to support the high throughput demands of 5G networks with a solution scalable to multiple gigabits per second per site.
According to Embratel, SES’ new O3b mPOWER technology will enable us to expand the company’s network platform and offer a whole new level of mobile services to our customers in some of the most remote villages and cities in the Amazon.
“Our mPOWERED Mobile Backhaul service offers unmatched scalability and flexibility, allowing leading telcos like Claro Brasil to land traffic with unmatched flexibility – either on land or directly to the cloud – and can be easily expanded to accommodate data growth from to cope with Claro’s mobile customers. offers an excellent experience even in some of the most remote areas of Brazil,” said Omar Trujillo, vice president of network sales for Americas at SES. “SES is excited to extend our partnership with Embratel and Claro in Brazil and the Amazon, where they are the first telecom company to partner with O3b mPOWER to further narrow the connectivity gap for a growing number of people and communities.”
