SES World Skies in new capacity deals with Global Crossing

MUMBAI: SES World Skies has announced three new capacity deals with Global Crossing, a global IP, Ethernet, data center and video solutions provider, to meet growing connectivity demand across Latin America.
The agreements represent the latest expansion in a longstanding alliance between SES World Skies and Global Crossing?s Latin America unit, which now utilises about 290 MHz of capacity aboard SES satellites to serve markets across the region.

On the heels of last year?s 90 MHz renewal on NSS-10, Global Crossing secured an additional 12 MHz of C-band capacity on the spacecraft to enable the implementation of a new VSAT network to meet growing demand for corporate connectivity in Brazil. 
Global Crossing also has contracted for a full 36 MHz transponder of Ku-band capacity aboard AMC-4 to provide corporate voice, video conferencing, Internet access and other offerings in the Andean region using a newly installed hub in Colombia.

Under the third deal, the telecom innovator is increasing its corporate network capacity with an additional 10 MHz of Ku-band on NSS-7 to meet the communications needs of mining and manufacturing companies, multinationals and other firms across Argentina and Chile.

Global Crossing Latin America and the Caribbean executive VP of network operations Matias Heinrich said, "The reach and reliability of SES World Skies supports Global Crossing?s ability to offer enhanced communications services to the corporate world across Latin America and the Caribbean. Bringing new Ku-band capacity such as the AMC-4 to the region helps us to provide everything from voice and internet access to virtual private networks and video conferencing via satellite to enterprises that need reliable communications to support
their development and economic growth in the region."
Global Crossing delivers corporate and video solutions across Latin America on a network that includes four SES World Skies satellites.

AMC-4 was relocated to the 67? West orbital slot in 2010 under a long-term agreement with the Andean Community of Nations. AMC-4 is a Ku-band satellite that provides expansion capacity to Latin America & Caribbean to satisfy the region?s growing DTH, corporate, broadband and government inclusion programmes.

NSS-10 is a high-powered C-band satellite at 322.5? East, which offers new and distinct advantages to telecom providers, Internet Service Providers, government agencies and others. NSS-7 is a powerful Ku- and C-band satellite located at 338? East over the Atlantic Ocean. NSS-806
provides broad C-band coverage of the Americas and Europe from the 319.5? orbital slot and hosts the Latin American video community.
