SES Network’s division has signed a contract with Brazil’s Briskcom Partners to use SES-10 for a virtual network service over the country.

Briskcom will expand its service offering by customising and flexibly managing connectivity for customers in energy, mining, agro- and ISP markets across Brazil.

SES says: “Through this partnership, Briskcom will leverage connectivity delivered by the SES-10 satellite as well as extend SES Networks’ managed services to customers in its core energy markets, as well as expand its service offerings to other segments, such as the agroindustry, mining and broadband for ISPs.”

“The agreement will enable Briskcom to deliver reliable corporate network solutions ranging from Internet of Things (IoT), telemetry, voice over IP (VOIP) and internet access. In addition, Briskcom, a leader in mission-critical operations, can now deliver more advanced applications for projects of greater size and complexity.”

“The agreement with SES Networks makes perfect sense from our business expansion perspective. More than ever, we want partners that help strengthen our position and enhance our value proposition,” said Cláudio Calonge, Commercial Director at Briskcom. “Working with a company that has the experience and knowhow of SES Networks corroborates the good work that Briskcom has been doing in Brazil. We see great opportunities to be explored and we are very optimistic about this new alliance.”

Briskcom has similar coverage agreements in place with Inmarsat, Hughes Network Services and Globalstar, so this is a valuable contract win for SES.
