SES to Bring More Connectivity Services to Kazakhstan
SES has teamed up with Kazakhstan’s Republican Centre for Space Communications (RCSC), a subsidiary of the Ministry of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry, to bring high-speed connectivity services to businesses across Kazakhstan. SES announced the collaboration Sept. 30. The services will be delivered via O3b mPOWER, SES’s second-generation non-geostationary (NGSO) satellite system, and will be made available to various industries, including telecommunications, onshore energy, mining, maritime and enterprises via RCSC.
SES and RCSC will also build an in-country gateway in the Almaty region that will allow Kazakhstan-based companies to quickly deploy and leverage O3b mPOWER’s high-speed and low-latency network connectivity for customer applications and offices, as well as partake in the governmental digital inclusion programmes. The gateway will also enable delivery of services to other bordering countries in the region, including Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan.
“As we expand our partnership with SES, we are proud to open Kazakhstan to new high-speed connectivity solutions via satellite. Our joint expertise and understanding of opportunities in the country allows us to offer satellite-enabled services that will bring new technologies and growth for businesses across Kazakhstan,” Malik Zhuiriktayev, chairman of the board of JSC RCSC, said in a statement.
