Strategic Partnership SES GLOBAL and Alcatel Space

SES GLOBAL and Alcatel Space, a subsidiary of Alcatel announced the formation of a strategic partnership for the implementation of two-way satellite based systems using SES' Broadband Interactive System (BBI) technology based on the DVB-RCS standard and targeting the Enterprise market.

SES pioneered the open DVB-RCS standard to provide two-way satellite broadband access using Ku and Ka-band frequencies to professional users such as corporations and small and medium-sized companies (SME). The BBI solution was launched commercially in November 2001.

Under the strategic partnership, SES GLOBAL will transfer to Alcatel Space the prime responsibility of the BBI technology development. By entering into the strategic agreement, Alcatel fully endorses the DVB-RCS standard for the large-scale implementation of two-way broadband services. Alcatel will continue the development of the system and ensure future supply of gateway and terminal products.

SES GLOBAL will cooperate with Alcatel in the definition of future product enhancements and in ensuring the broad commercial availability on a global basis of DVB-RCS products.

The strategic partnership aims to further enhance the BBI technology by:

  • improving satellite transponder efficiency and system capacity;
  • optimising the cost and performance of end-user terminals;
  • maximising the integration of broadband satellite and
    telecommunication networks;
  • extending the variety of services supported by the BBI system.
