SES and COMNET announced that they have extended their long-term partnership to jointly deliver high-performance, next-generation broadband services to enable applications supporting agriculture, trade, tourism, energy, financial, health and education sectors across Central America.

The Guatemalan service provider will leverage SES-17 Ka-band satellite capacity and SES’s managed services to offer a new QUANTTUM Ka enterprise solution, an extension to COMNET’s QUANTTUM portfolio of broadband services. In the last 15 years, COMNET has been leveraging SES’s extensive satellite fleet and managed services in C-, Ku- and now Ka-band to provide reliable connectivity services to underserved areas in the isthmus.

Powered by SES’s first high-throughput geostationary (GEO) satellite operating in Ka-band, COMNET’s QUANTTUM Ka solution will provide high-quality, reliable and fast Internet connectivity services to help accelerate digital access in the region, especially as countries continue to adapt and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The solution will enable telemedicine, remote education and Internet of Things (IoT) applications while supporting Business Continuity with redundancy services to help mitigate the impact of natural disasters in a region prone to climate and geological events.

Jorge Eskenasy, CEO, COMNET, said: “The long-standing partnership between COMNET and SES maintains a virtuous cycle of innovation in satellite technologies that improve access to broadband Internet connectivity with high availability and enhanced coverage.”
