In a move to improve and scale connectivity services to its oil, gas, and mining customers throughout Peru, local telecom services provider ColinaNet will leverage SES Networks’ Managed Enterprise Services to support a broad range of advanced network applications.
SES Networks says ColinaNet is pioneering its turnkey managed network solution in Peru to offer high-throughput satellite services that are reliable, affordable, and cloud-ready.
This software-based virtual network operator (sVNO) solution is built on SES Networks’ Skala Global Platform, which enables ColinaNet with a suite of network and service management tools to provision, monitor, and troubleshoot services. Additionally, ColinaNet can access a managed pool of high-powered, dedicated capacity over the SES-14 satellite and regional SES teleport operations to provide a broad range of tailored customer services ranging from corporate voice over internet protocol (VoIP) and Internet protocol private branch exchange (IP-PBX) to high-speed Internet and cloud access.
“Through this milestone collaboration with SES Networks, ColinaNet is well positioned to expand our presence and capabilities across the Peruvian market with game-changing, satellite-delivered telecom solutions, which allow us to offer greater opportunities and value to our customers throughout rural, underserved regions of Peru,” said Angel Carhuas, GM/ColinaNet. “We are now able to scale our services with a very competitive offering, especially in areas where fibre is either non-existent or prone to outages. Together with SES Networks, we are poised with the resources we need to expand into a full spectrum of new growth markets.”
“With our Signature Enterprise VNO capability, our customers can easily and effectively extend their network, and provide far greater service availability while lowering capital expenditure and operating cost even in isolated areas where it was previously very challenging to deliver connectivity,” added Omar Trujillo, Vice President of Sales for Fixed Data Americas at SES Networks. “We are very excited to partner with ColinaNet to leverage the capabilities and tools of our managed enterprise services and enable the very latest telecom technologies in key markets across Peru, thanks to the reach and reliability of satellite.”
