SES's O3b mPOWER communications system comprises an initial constellation of 11 high-throughput and low-latency satellites as well as extensive ground infrastructure. To be launched in 2021, the global terabit-level scalable constellation will operate in the medium earth orbit (MEO) that is 8,000km away from earth, and will generate thousands of dynamic beams.
The fully-funded O3b mPOWER system is capable of delivering connectivity services ranging from 50Mbps to multiple gigabits per second to telecommunications, maritime, aeronautical, and energy, as well as governments and institutions across the world.
O3b mPOWER is SES’s next-generation MEO constellation. It is built on the proven track record of SES’s current O3b constellation of 20 MEO satellites. The O3b system has been delivering high-performance communications services since 2014 to customers operating in nearly 50 countries today.
