These solutions are part of SES's strategy to transform satellite and ground networks for the cloud-scale era, helping the world's leading satellite operator to fulfil its commitment to operate an open and software-defined environment in which satellite-enabled networks and services are a seamless extension of the global communications ecosystem. Another part of this strategy was realised in August 2019 when SES announced it would be the first satellite operator to implement Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) using network functions virtualization (NFV) technology from Amdocs (News - Alert) on Azure. Using ONAP, SES will be able to orchestrate the creation and delivery of new services - such as SD-WAN, virtualised Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), security and more - in a completely automated and standards-based operating environment.
SES plans to deliver new cloud-based managed services, direct cloud connectivity and intelligent network automation and service orchestration initiatives, including:
To further deliver a seamless service experience for customers and partners, SES is also migrating its customer relationship management (CRM) platform to Microsoft Dynamics. The transformation to a cloud-based sales and services solution is showing results in increased productivity and collaboration between SES and its partners.
