September 30, 2022 – Republican Centre for Space Communications (RCSC), a subsidiary of the Ministry of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry and SES, the leading global content connectivity solutions provider via satellite, announced today that they will jointly offer high-speed connectivity services to businesses across Kazakhstan. The services will be delivered via O3b mPOWER, SES’s second-generation non-geostationary (NGSO) satellite system, and will be made available to various industries, including telecommunications, onshore energy, mining, maritime and enterprises via RCSC, offering these companies to drive digitalisation in the region with expanded high performance network capabilities. As part of the agreement, SES and RCSC will build an in-country gateway in the Almaty region that will allow Kazakhstan-based companies to quickly deploy and leverage O3b mPOWER’s high-speed and low-latency network connectivity for customer applications and offices, as well as partake in the governmental digital inclusion programmes. The gateway will also enable delivery of services to other bordering countries in the region, including Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
