Aura VSAT customers successfully transitioned onto brand new SES-12 HTS

We are delighted to announce that as of today, Aura VSAT customers have been successfully transitioned onto SES-12, the brand new HTS satellite from SES, which is expected to enhance the Aura service with coverage across Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.

SES-12 was successfully launched onboard a flight-proven SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral in Florida, United States, in June 2018, and will be replacing the services of SES NSS-6 from March 2019!

SES-12 is uniquely designed with state-of-the-art wide beams and high throughput beams, joining SES-8 at 95 degrees East, and offering  incremental high performance capacity as well as greater reliability and flexibility for our customers.

Planning for HTS implementation from inception, Satcom Global Aura has recently completed the successful upgrade to the iDirect Velocity platform

Satcom Global are delighted to report that the upgrade to the new High-Throughput Satellite was completed without disruption to the Aura VSAT service whilst the transition was carried out. 

More information about the Satcom Global Aura service can be found here, including hardware specifications and airtime packages.
