SES and Thales hit 265 Mbps in inflight connectivity demo powered by GEO-MEO satellite network

Wednesday 23 October 2019 | 18:28 CET | News
SES and Thales have collaborated on a demo flight to showcase the simultaneous use of bandwidth-hungry applications relying on connectivity speeds in excess of 265 Mbps. SES said that this performance was achieved thanks to its integrated satellite network platform, which can seamlessly switch between the O3b medium earth orbit (MEO) constellation and the geostationary (GEO) fleet. The operator is already offering a similar service at sea, called Signature Cruise Solution, and is now working on extending its availability to the skies.
