As a partner of Azure ExpressRoute, SES will provide global reach and fibre-like high-performance to Azure customers via its complete portfolio of Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites, Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) O3b constellation, global gateway network, and core terrestrial network infrastructure around the world. SES will offer Azure customers opportunities to leverage its satellite-enabled managed services to connect locations and sites in rural, remote and underserved locations, as well as vessels and airplanes out at sea and in the skies that previously did not have access to cloud services.
In addition to its global fleet of over 50 GEO satellites, SES also delivers managed data services over its proven O3b MEO satellite system, the only successful non-geostationary orbit (NGSO) broadband constellation. SES’s 20 O3b satellites comprise the only operational system today that can deliver fibre-equivalent, MEF-certified data connectivity services, and certified cloud connectivity services. The systems’ intelligent GEO- and MEO- orbit resilience that facilitate edge compute capabilities are key enablers in the seamless integration of high-performance satellite connectivity into Microsoft’s and their customers’ sites.
In addition, Azure customers also will be able to tap into SES’s groundbreaking next-generation MEO communications system, O3b mPOWER. Launching in 2021, O3b mPOWER will deliver ten times the throughput of the existing O3b constellation with unprecedented flexibility and dynamic control to help drive global cloud adoption everywhere.
“We believe that the economic and productivity benefits of the cloud should be easily available to all enterprise, maritime and aeronautical customers as well as government organisations, regardless of location. Now, as a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute connectivity partner, we are expanding our strategic collaboration with Microsoft and extending intelligent cloud and edge services from Azure to the most underserved end points on the planet,” said JP Hemingway, CEO of SES Networks. “As the only satellite network services provider to operate a global, multi-orbit fleet utilising an extensive fleet of GEO and MEO satellites, SES stands ready to help Azure customers connect to any site at cloud scale, supporting critical enterprise workloads and offering an end-to-end network solution for emerging AI, IoT, video content services, and future applications to come.”
Ross Ortega, Partner, Product Manager of Azure Networking, Microsoft Corp. said, “We are collaborating with SES across a range of initiatives to build upon their expertise in satellite communications and increase connectivity to critical services and applications for customers in remote and underserved areas. This new collaboration between SES and Microsoft Azure Express Route further enables us to bring Azure to any business or government site.”
SES also announced today an expanded collaboration with Microsoft to benefit from Azure’s extensive cloud and AI capabilities to deliver one of the first broadcast-grade cloud services for media delivery. This builds on the broader strategic work between SES and Microsoft, as well as their shared common vision to reach everyone with intelligent cloud, media and network solutions.

With Putin’s Visit, UAE Takes Spotlight in the New World Order14.10.2019 08:21:00 CEST | Press release
Watermelon Communications -- Patrick Michael, a commentator on the Middle East, wrote: Energy, Strategy, and Security; these three parameters have defined and shaped Russia-Middle East relations in the post-Cold War era. At a microcosmic level, this also applies in the case of UAE-Russia ties. While energy creates interdependence and makes partnership the only viable option on the table, security and strategy continues to be an entangled web. As Putin embarks on another significant visit to the Gulf – essentially UAE and Saudi Arabia – it’s time to revisit the three parameters. A good starting point is the conversion of views and strategies on energy supplies. A broad agreement over the output cut is critical considering the pressure on oil prices in the wake of a slowing global economy. There’s nothing more fruitful for the industry and the economy than the big suppliers working in coordination and Russia “deeply values the significant contribution the UAE is making to the global oil

SHINE Creates Therapeutics Division, Will Attend 2019 European Association of Nuclear Medicine Conference12.10.2019 04:00:00 CEST | Press release
SHINE Medical Technologies, LLC today announced the creation of a new division of the company — SHINE Therapeutics. The establishment of the division enhances the company’s ability to focus on filling critical future needs in the rapidly growing therapeutic isotope market, while continuing to leverage its radioisotope production expertise. The company’s Therapeutics division will initially focus on the development and commercialization of lutetium‑177, or Lu‑177, a therapeutic isotope that is combined with a disease-specific targeting molecule to treat cancer. Targeting molecules deliver Lu‑177 atoms to cancer sites throughout the body, where they directly irradiate cancer cells. The first Lu‑177-based targeted radiotherapy (for neuroendocrine tumors) reached the market in 2018. Many high-potential targeted molecules for the treatment of a range of other cancers with Lu-177 are currently under investigation. SHINE is also evaluating additional medical isotopes with therapeutic properti
Smart Taxation – A Step Towards a Fair, Efficient and Growth-Friendly European Taxation Approach11.10.2019 22:01:00 CEST | Press release
In a rapidly changing global economy, smart taxation is essential to drive growth and economic prosperity. However, the European Union (EU) continues to fall behind as it persists with a one-size-fits all taxation system. This year’s GLOBSEC Tatra Summit hosts a Focus Group, bringing together international experts, looking to reshape and support a smarter European tax policy. Europe is at a crossroads in adapting its tax policy to the realities of today’s global economy. The EU plays a key role in overseeing national tax rules in some areas - particularly in relation to EU business and consumer policies. The institutional changeover marks a perfect opportunity for the Tatra Summit to place major topics on the radar of decision-makers and offer efficient recommendations. So now is the time to adapt the EU’s taxation model to be fit-for-purpose. With member states around the table, European fiscal authorities should design a model that does not have a disruptive impact on national needs
