    Orbit Mythbusting: LEO, MEO and GEO

    Orbit Mythbusting: LEO, MEO and GEO

    SES is one of the very few companies focussed on all orbit connectivity. On this episode of Satellite Stories, we compare LEO, MEO and GEO orbits in terms of latency, coverage and data congestion. 
    Taking advantage of all orbits helps governments choose the best connectivity, the highest throughput and the lowest latency for their application needs. Michael Geist (VP of Product Management, SES Space and Defense) explains how.
    Presented by Kristina Smith-Meyer, senior creative with SES.

    O3b mPOWER in the Galapagos Islands (Part 3): Aim for the Moon

    O3b mPOWER in the Galapagos Islands (Part 3): Aim for the Moon

    Plaza Luna Suites is a boutique hotel run by Dalila Efigenia Vargas Castillo and her family. A place her mother built from scratch when they first moved the islands in the 1950s. 
    Dalila, much like her mum, aims for the moon when it comes to customer service. And having a reliable internet connection is essential to running her business in every way.
    From ordering supplies, to responding to reservation enquiries, or booking guests excursions… “Without the internet,” she says, “I do not have a business, simple.”
    So what difference will an improved service like SES’s O3b mPOWER and CNT Ecuador’s partnership make to people like Dalila? Satellite Stories host Kristina Smith-Meyer visits to find out.

    O3b mPOWER in the Galapagos Islands (Part 2): Deep Dive

    O3b mPOWER in the Galapagos Islands (Part 2): Deep Dive

    Head several metres under the Pacific Ocean off the island of Santa Cruz and you’ll find hammerhead sharks, eagle rays, dolphins and plenty more. But above sea, sitting at her desk in her dive school, Alice Bartlett needs a solid internet connection via satellites in space to keep her business afloat. 
    These days tourists want to book in advance, sort paperwork and licensing before they set off on the holiday of a lifetime. Plus, in the world of TripAdvisor reviews and social media - Academy Bay Diving has to stay competitive online as much as it does on the street. Then, of course - there’s the implication of safety. If something was to go wrong out at sea, satellite connection will be the first port of call for help.
    Satellite Stories host Kristina Smith-Meyer visits Alice and her team of divers in the Galapagos Islands to explore the impact O3b mPOWER will have on everyday businesses and lives.
