SES broadens partnership with Pactel under new deal

MUMBAI: Leading satellite operator SES has broadened its partnership with global satellite communications provider Pactel through a multi-year capacity deal on NSS-6.

Under the new capacity expansion deal, Pactel will utilise multi-transponder capacity on two SES satellites -- NSS-9 at 183 degrees East and NSS-6 at 95 degrees East.

Pactel, a longstanding SES customer, will use the additional capacity to expand its voice and data service offerings within the Pacific region, enabling it to provide remote businesses across Australia, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste with access to reliable and affordable connectivity.

Pactel International CEO Andrew Taylor said, “With a global fleet of 51 satellites, SES covers virtually all of the world‘s population. The comprehensive coverage of both NSS-6 and NSS-9 have enabled us to expand our networks further, providing coverage to even the most remote Pacific islands. The high-powered NSS-6 beam also means our customers require much smaller antennas to stay connected, making them much easier to install, while being both cost and space effective.”

“Pactel has enjoyed tremendous success in overcoming geographic challenges to offer reliable broadband access to businesses in the region. We are pleased to have found a solution with NSS-6 for Pactel’s growing business needs and that we are able to continue playing a key role in connecting the remote businesses in the Asia-Pacific region,” said SES senior VP Commercial, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East Deepak Mathur.
