SES AMERICOM-NEW SKIES Provides IP Network Access Across Brazil to BT
Friday, May 01, 2009
Dedicated to the delivery of global business connectivity, SES AMERICOM-NEW SKIES, a division of SES S.A. announced that BT in Latin America has signed a three-year agreement for nearly three full transponders of satellite capacity to extend its IP network deep into the remotest regions of Brazil.
Expanding from 92 to 104 megahertz of highly reliable C-band capacity aboard SES AMERICOM-NEW SKIES’ NSS-10 satellite, BT is offering IP trunking services to link businesses based in Manaus and other rural stretches of Northern Brazil to its teleport and Internet access point in São Paulo. BT has also tapped a portion of the satellite bandwidth to support customer SCPC (single channel per carrier) and distance learning applications throughout Brazil.
Serving regional, transcontinental and transoceanic customers in North America, the Caribbean, South America, Europe and Africa, NSS-10 is also capable of providing links to other regional satellite systems. Located at 322.5 degrees east, NSS-10 is delivering high-powered C-band capacity and is providing service with higher data throughput to smaller antennas with unsurpassed levels of reliability – even in areas of high rain zones. NSS-10’s high throughput levels also make it an ideal platform to support VSAT and GSM backhaul services.
