SES: building the multi-orbit network of the future

We do the extraordinary in space to deliver amazing experiences everywhere on Earth.

Delivering smart connectivity to the network edge

The collaboration between SES and Orange opens up new horizons in your smart connectivity journey, a single partnership for digitization. SES’s medium Earth orbit (MEO) O3b constellation enables private cloud connectivity, IoT and business applications with high throughput and low latency. Empower surveillance systems, videoconferencing, automated industry and sensor fleets anywhere on the globe. Our partnership optimizes our solutions for your specific requirements.

Take your story anywhere with our multi-orbit fleet

With satellites in both MEO and geosynchronous (GEO) orbit, SES offered the market’s first non-geosynchronous communication satellites, and is still the only operator who offers services from two orbits. With SES and Orange, you can take advantage of the benefits of GEO satellites’ wide coverage and reliability, and the SES O3b MEO constellation, which can offer fiber-like low latency and multiple gigabits of throughput by being closer to the earth. Wherever opportunities take you – in the most remote locations, at sea or in the air – you can get connected to the data that matters to you.

Global, cloud-scale connectivity everywhere

By collaborating and working together, we offer low-latency MEO O3b system (<150ms) connectivity to support real-time data sharing with optimized cloud connectivity to cover mine requirements anywhere.

This highly-reliable, fiber-equivalent connectivity enables access to high-tech applications, such as cloud applications, IoT, SAP and real-time transfer of exploration data, surveillance systems, video streaming of exploration, inspections, repair and salvage missions, and tracking of wireless sensors for assets, helping you achieve efficiency savings in real time. You will enjoy a similar user experience to that of terrestrial.


SES is the only satellite-enabled operator with MEF CE 2.0 certification, adhering to the same, robust MEF-compliant SLAs used by the world’s leading telcos, making our network a seamless extension of yours.

We were also the first satellite operator to adopt the Open Networking Automation Platform (ONAP) and among the founding members of the Microsoft Azure Orbital partnership.

A world-leading, integrated, satellite-enabled solutions provider

Orange Business and SES have been working together for many years and have developed a partnership that is proven, trusted and successful in delivering reliable connectivity solutions in Africa.


We have been doing the extraordinary in space since 1985. From our headquarters in Betzdorf, Luxembourg and our 20+ offices across the globe, our 1,900 employees operate, maintain and market our global connectivity solutions anywhere on land, at sea or in the air.
