Since 2017, satellite operator SES has been working collaboratively with its US customers, suppliers, competitors and with the FCC to enable the clearing of a portion of the spectrum used for satellite services. This is paving the way for Federal Communication Commission’s largest spectrum auction ever in January 2021, yielding over USD 80 billion for US Treasury while at the same time accelerating the roll-out of 5G in the US and creating value for satellite operators.
Join us to hear more on this exciting topic from Christophe De Hauwer, Chief Development Officer of SES.
SES is the world-leading satellite operator and the first to deliver a differentiated and scalable GEO-MEO offering worldwide, with over 50 satellites in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and 16 in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). SES focuses on value-added, end-to-end solutions in two key business units: SES Video and SES Networks. At SES, we connect and enable broadcast, telecom, corporate and government customers, and enrich the lives of billions of people worldwide
