SES announced Gilat and ST Engineering iDirect as its latest technology partners who will be making the core infrastructure modem platforms for O3b mPower, SES's non-geostationary-satellite orbit (NGSO) communications system. Gilat and ST Engineering iDirect were selected based on their modem technologies. Featuring open architectures with a path to full virtualisation, the modems will interface with SES's differentiated Adaptive Resource Control (ARC) functionality and leverage SES's use of the Open Networking Automation Platform (ONAP) standard.
