MEO Satellites for Remote Connectivity

SES's MEO satellites, which orbit at 8,000 km above the Earth's surface, will complement the government's digital inclusion initiatives to deliver connectivity to even the most hard-to-reach regions in the country, both companies announced on Monday.

Commenting on the collaboration, Inred said, "Having a long-term partner such as SES, who operates satellites in both geostationary and MEO orbits and understands our connectivity needs well, we have full trust in SES offering the most ideal satellite network to pave the way to a better social and economic future for the people of Colombia."

"We have previously enabled INRED to connect nearly one million people in 1,300 sites across Colombia with free Wi-Fi access," said SES. "Today we expand our collaboration as INRED leverages our MEO satellites to connect the population of the city of Leticia with low-latency, high-throughput connectivity that will allow for better access to educational and governmental services."

Established in 2002, INRED provides satellite-enabled telecommunications services and last-mile solutions, particularly useful in places where the telecommunications infrastructure is deficient or non-existent.
