Core business

SES is the world-leading satellite operator and the first to deliver a differentiated and scalable GEO-MEO offering worldwide, with more than 50 satellites in Geo-stationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and 12 in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO).

SES focuses on value-added, end-to-end solutions in two key market verticals: Video and Networks. The company provides satellite communications services to broadcasters, content and internet service providers, mobile and fixed network operators, governments and institutions, and businesses worldwide. SES’s portfolio includes the ASTRA satellite system, which has the largest Direct-to- Home (DTH) television reach in Europe, O3b Networks, a global managed data communications service provider and MX1, a leading media service provider that offers a full suite of innovative digital video and media services.


Products and services

In 2017, SES restructured its go-to-market organisation model with the creation of two highly focused business units, SES Video and SES Networks, focusing on the video- and data-centric segments in which SES operates. This structure is devised with the aim of allowing SES to deliver increasingly differentiated and essential satellite-enabled communication solutions to SES clients in the respective video and data-centric segments. SES Networks comprises the Fixed Data, Mobility, and Government segments and integrates O3b Networks.


As the world’s leading video platform, SES enables broadcasters to deliver over 7,540 TV channels to 325 million TV homes and nearly one billion people worldwide. SES provides direct-to-home broadcasting and feeds for cable and IP and digital terrestrial TV networks, as well as occasional use. Beyond providing capacity, SES’s value-added services include management, play-out and encryption services, as well as tailored engineering services.

Fixed Data

With future applications demanding ever-higher throughputs and better economics, SES is differentiating its offering with continued investment in high throughput infrastructures in both Geostationary (GEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). SES serves customers in sectors such as telecommunications, oil & gas, banking, transportation, health and education with unprecedented access to a unique, ubiquitous, future-proof and high-performing network.


The global market for commercial mobility via satellite is driven by solid uptake in maritime markets and strong growth in aeronautical connectivity. SES’s services enable to connect thousands of vessels, yachts, airplanes and trains to corporate offices, provide high-quality live inflight entertainment and fast broadband access regardless of locations.


SES is trusted by governments and institutions internationally to deliver vital communication links. The company serves 62 government entities in 28 countries and participates in various public private partnership initiatives offering end-to-end solutions for defence and security, as well as for humanitarian purposes, such as disaster response.
