SES has won a new contract with a Peruvian telecoms company which will enable the customer to serve the oil and gas and mining industries throughout the region, the company announced Jan. 27. The deal with ColinaNet, will leverage SES Networks’ Managed Enterprise Services to support a broad range of advanced network applications.

ColinaNet plans to use SES Networks’ turnkey managed network solution in Peru to offer high-throughput satellite services. This Software-based Virtual Network Operator (SVNO) solution is built on SES Networks’ Skala Global Platform, which enables ColinaNet with a suite of network and service management tools to provision, monitor, and troubleshoot services.

“We are now able to scale our services with a very competitive offering, especially in areas where fiber is either non-existent or prone to outages. Together with SES Networks, we are poised with the resources we need to expand into a full spectrum of new growth markets,” commented Angel Carhuas, general manager at ColinaNet.

Latin America is a key target market for SES. In the last couple of months, SES also announced that it has completed the delivery of 300 additional broadband hotspots across Colombia working with local service provider, INRED. SES had been involved with a deployment of 1000 free community Wi-Fi zones connecting more than 700,000 underserved Colombians nationwide in 2019. The additional sites were deployed in record time and were part of Colombia’s Sustainable Universal Access project administered by the Colombian Ministry of Telecommunications.
