SES has agreed a distribution deal with Profen in Turkey for access to its mPOWER broadband system.

Energy companies, government agencies, the telco companies and humanitarian aid organisations in Turkey, the Middle East and Africa will soon be able to access high-performance, low-latency satellite-based connectivity services.

The combined capacity and infrastructure agreements will see Profen deploy SES’s second-generation medium earth orbit (MEO) system – O3b mPOWER – and build a gateway in Turkey to jointly deliver high-performance connectivity to serve identified market opportunities of more than 10 Gb/s.

Istanbul-based Profen Satellite Services, founded in 2002, already provides satellite connectivity for Media & Broadcast, Satellite Networks, Teleport services, TV Contribution & Distribution and Uplink & Downlink fields of activity. With notably DTH services in particular, Profen has completed infrastructure work for Teleport services for GEO, MEO and LEO satellites, for Turkey and other geographic regions.

“The launch of the O3b mPOWER system represents a significant milestone for the satcom industry, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this technological revolution. As a leading provider of high-tech solutions, Profen is committed to delivering innovative and reliable connectivity services to our customers. With the deployment of SES’s O3b mPOWER gateway in Türkiye, we are excited to offer our customers on land, out at sea or in the skies unprecedented access to high-performance, low-latency satellite-based connectivity services,” said Cem Odaman, Chief Business Development Officer at Profen.

“We are very excited to partner with Profen and to jointly introduce high-throughput and low-latency satellite-enabled services to Türkiye and surrounding regions. With O3b mPOWER, Profen will have access to a reliable and high-speed network, whenever and wherever they need it, allowing them to quickly and flexibly address the changing connectivity demands of their customers, including the highly anticipated 5G technology,” added Brendan O’Callaghan, Global Head of Enterprise and Cloud at SES.
