MTN and SES sign IOR extension

MTN and satellite operator SES have renewed a capacity agreement to deliver VSAT to shipping routes throughout the Indian Ocean Region.

The deal marks the latest milestone in a long-term partnership.

In a multi-year deal, MTN has secured capacity on several transponders aboard SES’ NSS-12 satellite to offer connectivity to vessels travelling one of the world’s largest oceans and busiest shipping routes serving the African and Asian coasts and port cities in Australia and Antarctica.

"MTN and SES have successfully served the growing connectivity demands of our customers throughout the world for years," said Zafar Khan, vice president of Systems and Space Engineering for MTN.

"This renewed agreement with SES underscores our commitment to the Indian Ocean Region and serves as a testament to our confidence in SES satellites, people and expertise."

"SES has been an important partner, as MTN continues to grow and expand its mobility service offerings as well as its new hybrid network. This innovative solution allows partners to seamlessly switch from satellite to terrestrial broadband, maximising the bandwidth delivered to each vessel and others in their fleets for the best and most reliable performance and cost efficiencies."
