O3b mPOWER is SES’s next-generation Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite-based communication system offering high-bandwidth, low-latency data connectivity services to under-served and mobility markets.

Launching in 2021, the system will begin its service life in mid-2022. Building on the capabilities of our current O3b MEO system, O3b mPOWER expands exponentially to deliver thousands of dedicated services up to multiple gigabits per second.
