Examples of End Customer Applications

Connecting the caribbean
Connecting the Caribbean

  • Connect the Caribbean Objective: “Connecting the Unconnected by 2015”

  • Caribbean Geography Demands Satellite Connectivity

    • Small Island States

    • Subject to weather related disasters which stress terrestrial based infrastructure

    • Rural and remote areas with limited connectivity

    • Low cost applications

Broadband access
Broadband Access

  • Large projects aimed at closing the “Digital Divide”

  • Internet cafés – Hot spots

  • Remote GSM and WiMax sites

  • Incomplete coverage of existing terrestrial fiber, copper or wireless networks

  • Rural networks

  • Multi tenants – condominiums

  • Add value to future DTH and IPTV systems

Examples of current networks
Examples of current networks

  • GSM Backhaul Network in the South Pacific Islands

    • Digital circuits connecting cell sites in Samoa, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu and Fiji

    • 10 sites

    • C-band

  • Rural Telephony Network in the Dominican Republic

    • Voice network for pay-phones

    • 500 sites

    • Ku-band

  • Market Status:

    • Expansion of commercial shipping and recreational maritime segments

    • Resuscitation of Aeronautical market

  • What SES NEW SKIES does today

    • Work with our customers MTN-SeaLink, Broadband Maritime, Telenor etc. to provision broadband solutions to ocean-going vessels

  • Future Opportunities

    • Continue to work with customers and value-chain customers to support the growth of truly global mobile broadband networks

  • Market Status:

    • DMB-S has had success in Japan/Korea

    • DVB-H is being adopted in Europe and several other Emerging Markets

  • What SES does today

    • Exploratory SOLARIS JV with Eutelsat to explore S-band payload to support DVB-H services in Europe (feeder and direct-to-handset)

  • Future Opportunities

    • We see strong potential in Satellite feeder links to 3G base-stations and DVB-H repeaters

What s needed
What’s Needed…

  • All satellite operators need spectrum to deliver their services

  • Our evolving technology uses it more efficiently and cost-effectively

  • Regulatory environment must be predictable

  • Regulators must safeguard the delivery mechanisms of satellites…

  • …as for other critical infrastructure

Example c band use in the caribbean
Example: C-Band Use in the Caribbean

  • 3.4 – 4.2 GHz

  • Backhaul services for telecoms networks

  • Point-to-point trunking

  • Government and strategic communications

  • High-volume data and broadcast transmission

  • Rural telephony services

  • Avionics

  • Maritime services

  • ‘Lifeblood of the satellite industry’

Can satellites share c band with other technologies
Can Satellites Share C-band With Other Technologies?

Example: WiMax…

  • …150km exclusion zone needed

  • Exclusion zones are dependent on terrain type and may need to be much bigger

  • Many users are not listed so creating exclusion zones is often impossible


  • SES New Skies: committed to increasing service over the Caribbean

  • Significant expansion of its fleet planned in the next 3 years

  • Caribbean customer growth foreseen for long term for…

  • …Broadband, government, and safety services

  • Satellite use of spectrum must be preserved to ensure continued connectivity

  • Satellite use of C band should be safeguarded in particular

  • New technologies must be implemented in a way that preserves existing services
