PANASONIC Avionics is a leading provider of inflight entertainment and connectivity systems. These contracts, for SES-14 and SES-15, represent their highest bandwidth commitment to date of high-powered HTS spot beam and wide beam Ku-band capacity. SES’s HTS coverage will enable airlines to offer next-generation inflight Wi-Fi and live television services to passengers travelling on air routes throughout the Continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. PANASONIC Avionics will also utilize the HTS capacity to serve growing maritime markets and oil and gas operations throughout the region.

“These major agreements are another step-change in the highly dynamic and buoyant aeronautical connectivity market,” said Ferdinand Kayser, Chief Commercial Officer of SES. “Our new high throughput satellites, SES-14 and SES-15, are poised to dramatically change the airline passenger experience and introduce a new era of inflight connectivity. SES-14 and SES-15 are designed for mobility; they are able to dynamically tailor power allocation and bandwidth to maximize capacity. This enables delivery to aircraft across different geographies and time zones. The design allows for easy transition from one region to another, from one gateway to another, and from one satellite to the other. The unique designs of both satellites include video broadcast beams which complement the spot beams, maximizing throughput for Internet and video streaming traffic. Both satellites will be launched in 2017.”

David Bruner, Vice President of Global Communications Services at Panasonic Avionics said, “With our communications service expanding rapidly across several vertical markets, we are always looking for innovative high throughput satellite designs that help us deliver the best connectivity service to our customers. Working with SES, it was clear that their SES-14 and SES-15 satellites were the best option for us to supplement our existing HTS capabilities and ensure a true broadband experience over the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. Given their vision and conviction, Panasonic is very excited to collaborate with SES, and we look forward to offering these ultra-high throughput services to our air transport, business aviation, oil and gas, energy and maritime markets in 2017.”

EURid Supports Uganda Borehole Rehabilitation Project23.8.2017 09:00Pressemelding

EURid has announced its support to the Borehole Rehabilitation project in Uganda to provide thousands of people with clean drinkable water. EURid sees water as the most basic requirement for life. For many rural communities across Sub-Saharan Africa it is still a struggle to find safe drinking water. Moreover, water drawn from rivers could potentially contain lethal contaminants and therefore must be boiled before ingestion, adding yet an additional hardship for families as well as the environment in terms of firewood used. The goal of the Borehole Rehabilitation project is to better this situation by working with Ugandan communities to repair broken boreholes and restore access to clean, safe drinking water. The direct benefits of the project are that families no longer have to travel great distances to attain water or boil the water to eradicate contaminants, saving firewood and prev
