Pactel signs capacity expansion deal with SES

Telecom Lead Asia: Satellite communications provider
Pactel has signed a capacity expansion deal with SES.


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 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.


Andrew Taylor, CEO, Pactel International, 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.


Deepak Mathur, senior vice president – Commercial,
Asia-Pacific and the Middle East at SES, said Pactel has enjoyed tremendous
success in overcoming geographic challenges to offer reliable broadband access
to businesses in the region.
