STECCOM to Use SES Capacity for IFC Services Over Europe
Sputnik Telecommunications Entertainment Company (STECCOM), a Russian satellite communications operator and developer of Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT)-based communication systems, will elevate the passenger and crew In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) experience across the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region and Europe using SES satellite capacity.
SES Networks’ mobility solution will enable the service provider to customize and distribute bandwidth, adapting their offerings according to the needs of commercial passenger aircraft and business jets operating on their network. Additionally, STECCOM will be able to deliver High Throughput Satellite (HTS) connectivity to its customers.
SES Networks and STECCOM will use each other’s ground facilities, opening up opportunities for enhanced connectivity across Europe, Russia and Central Asia.
“With this agreement STECCOM is positioning itself to extend its aeronautical network throughout Europe and is able to create opportunities for future reach beyond this geographical area,” said Oleg Kuts, STECCOM Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
