For Tekedia Institute, John Mc Keown has a conversation with Daniel Schapiro of SES/O3b. Daniel explains many of the interesting features and variables of different types of satellites. These include the distance from the earth and the technologies used.
Daniel provides an immense amount of information and deep insights leveraging his years of experience in the business, since being with Gilat since 2007, on to O3b as a major satellite development project, and then on to SES since the acquisition of O3b to the present day.
It is an interesting discussion that also takes in different types of VSAT bands and frequencies, and also touches on commercial models in use.
Daniel pivots to recent activities that SES/O3b has currently live in Democratic Republic of Congo.
This discussion also opens the door for further exploring of specific areas of these technologies with SES O3b for the Tekedia community.
