SES-9 ready to enter commercial service

SES has announced that its new SES-9 spacecraft is entering commercial service. SES-9 has successfully completed its testing and reached its orbital position at around 108.2 degrees East where it has joined SES-7 and will replace NSS-11.

SES-9, built by Boeing Satellite Systems International, is the largest SES satellite to serve the Asia-Pacific region, with 57 high-power Ku-band transponders – equivalent to 81x36MHz transponders, out of which 53 are incremental.

The new spacecraft will provide significant expansion capacity to serve the fast-growing video and mobility sectors across India, Northeast Asia, South Asia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

The satellite will also be capable of supporting a range of enterprise and government applications.

SES-9 has already secured business in advance of the satellite’s entry in commercial service.

SES will co-market SES-9 capacity with Indonesia’s largest satellite telecommunications services company, PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, to the Indonesian market.

In addition, Sky Cable, the largest cable television provider in the Philippines, signed a multi-year, multi-transponder agreement for broadcasting direct-to-home (DTH) satellite TV channels.

This week SES also partnered with Gilat Satellite Networks, a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, to launch the SES Enterprise+ Hybrid Broadband in Asia.

This innovative, hybrid broadband solution will use capacity from SES-9.
