Comnet, one of Guatemala's leading service providers, is the first to tap into the newly-launched SES Networks Enterprise+ Broadband for Latin America to enable the delivery of Quantum, a high-performance next-generation broadband service, to its end customers spanning the agricultural, tourism and mining industries.
SES announced that the multi-year contract Comnet will utilise the carrier-class managed services platform on the SES-10 satellite to extend reliable connectivity to underserved communities.
The turnkey broadband multi-tenant platform is underpinned by SES's comprehensive and high-performance fleet coverage over Latin America, an extensive global teleport infrastructure, and iDirect's ground system capabilities. By using Enterprise+ Broadband, Comnet can customise and flexibly manage connectivity for each customer.
"SES Networks Enterprise+ Broadband platform is a step up when it comes to performance and pricing. The competitive offering is enabling us to focus on providing better value for money services to our customers, enabling them to grow their business faster and across a wider region using our new Quantum service," said Jorge Eskenasy, CEO at Comnet.
Omar Trujillo, Vice President, Fixed Data, Latin America of SES Networks, said, "The benefits of Enterprise+ Broadband are that it's entirely flexible and customisable to fit individual customer needs.
Innovative ground technology is also helping us to better allocate bandwidth efficiently and to provide premium connectivity at competitive rates. We are extremely excited to have Comnet as our first customer and look forward to helping them grow their business."
SES-10 was launched in March 2017. Providing enhanced coverage and significant capacity expansion over Latin America, SES-10 was the first geostationary commercial satellite to launch on a SpaceX flight-proven first-stage rocket booster.
