Guatemala's Comnet leverages SES platform to deliver high-performance connectivity

Comnet, one of Guatemala´s service providers, is the first to tap into the newly launched SES Networks Enterprise+ Broadband for Latin America to enable the delivery of Quantum, a high-performance next-generation broadband service, to its end customers spanning the agricultural, tourism and mining industries, the company said.

SES has announced that in the multi-year contract Comnet will utilise the carrier-class managed services platform on the SES-10 satellite to extend reliable connectivity to underserved communities.

The turnkey broadband multi-tenant platform is underpinned by SES´s comprehensive and high-performance fleet coverage over Latin America, an extensive global teleport infrastructure, and iDirect´s ground system capabilities. By using Enterprise+ Broadband, Comnet can customise and flexibly manage connectivity for each customer.

SES is the world-leading satellite operator and the first to deliver a differentiated and scalable GEO-MEO offering worldwide, with more than 50 satellites in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and 12 in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). SES focuses on value-added, end-to-end solutions in two key business units: SES Video and SES Networks. Further information available at: www.ses.com
