Marlink has contracted SES Networks to provide fiber-like connectivity via the O3b medium-Earth orbit (MEO) constellation in order to support “big data” services for its enterprise customers.

Marlink said the contract would provide the low-latency, high-performance connectivity it needs to complement its existing portfolio of geostationary (GEO) services for utilities, renewable energy, oil and gas, civilian governments and other industries.

“This new agreement contributes to the continuous expansion of capacity and diversity in Marlink’s hybrid network solutions and smart routing, with the low-latency link on the O3b fleet especially attractive as we develop certified and future-proof integrated services for our diverse enterprise customer base,” Marlink Director of Enterprise Technology & Innovation Olivier Gommes said in a statement.
