NTT and SES team up on satellite-based edge solutions

NTT and SES are partnering on using SES satellites to deliver NTT’s Edge-as-a-Service to enterprise customers.

The collaboration combines NTT’s expertise in networking and enterprise managed services with SES’s satellite capabilities to deliver reliable connectivity to enterprises that must meet surges in connectivity demand or are based beyond the reach of fixed terrestrial networks.

The offering combines NTT’s fully managed Private 5G and Edge Compute with SES’s second-generation medium earth orbit communications system — O3b mPOWER — to provide expanded and reliable connectivity. This solution is ideal for companies operating in regions where terrestrial networks are lacking and enterprises wanting to leverage high-performance connectivity to increase their efficiency and grow revenue.

Through the combined versatility of Private 5G networks and satellite technology, it is expected to propel industries — such as energy, mining, maritime, manufacturing, and industrial — that have been limited by connectivity and will need to ramp up their digital transformation plans and increase revenue streams.

“We are excited to embark on this journey with SES, combining our collective expertise to help businesses digitally transform and scale. As organisations grapple with the challenges of a rapidly changing world, it is now more important than ever to leverage the power of technology to drive growth and innovation,” said Miriam Murphy, CEO Europe of NTT.

Putting control and ownership back into the hands of the customer, the joint solution will deliver coverage to more than 190 countries with public-private roaming. NTT will also provide use-case consulting and design, application development, system integration, implementation, and managed services, while SES will offer end-to-end satellite networks via O3b mPOWER that will be seamlessly integrated with NTT’s offering.

“Private 5G is a transformative power that enables enterprises to build upon existing network infrastructure and deliver reliable, high bandwidth, and low latency connections for multiple use cases operating on a single Private 5G network. NTT’s robust Private 5G network-as-a-service full stack solution, delivered on-premises, at the edge, or as a cloud service, is complemented by NTT’s 24/7 remote monitoring services and a CIO self-service portal, ensuring that NTT’s full stack of managed Edge Compute services delivers real-time actionable intelligence to drive processing efficiency and accelerate business performance,” said Olivier Posty, Country Managing Director Luxembourg of NTT.
