NTT Ltd., a global IT infrastructure and services company, and SES, a global content connectivity service provider via satellite, announced a multi-year partnership to use SES satellites to deliver NTT’s Edge as a Service to enterprise customers. The collaboration will bring together 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.
The solution is intended for companies operating in regions where terrestrial networks lack and enterprises want to leverage high-performance connectivity to increase their efficiency and grow revenue.
Through the combined versatility of Private 5G networks and satellite technology, this end-to-end solution is expected to propel industries – such as energy, mining, maritime, manufacturing, industrial, etc. – that have been limited by connectivity and will need to ramp up their digital transformation plans and increase revenue streams.
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. In addition to NTT’s Private 5G and Edge Compute capabilities, NTT will provide use-case consulting and design, application development, system integration, implementation and managed services, while SES will provide end-to-end satellite networks via O3b mPOWER that will be seamlessly integrated with NTT’s offering.
NTT’s Edge-as-a-Service offering includes IoT, Edge Compute, and Private 5G connectivity delivered by NTT across its global footprint. NTT’s Edge-as-a-Service is a unique, fully managed, integrated solution that accelerates business process automation, enabling enterprises to quickly deploy their applications more securely and monitor them closer to the edge, thereby reducing downtime, improving user experience, and optimizing costs.
The partnership between NTT and SES comes as organizations are turning to technology to drive growth and innovation. Organizations recognize the positive impact of high-speed connectivity and resilient networks on business operations, driving demand and fueling widespread digital transformation.
