SES (NYSE Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) launches today a new video
distribution neighborhood for Latin America and a new antenna seeding
program for the NSS-806 satellite located at 47.5 degrees West. The new
neighborhood will provide new capacity for expansion of video channel
delivery to cable head-ends throughout Latin America, as well as much
needed capability to accommodate the increasing number of HD channels in
the region. Combined with SES’s strong neighborhood on SES-6 at 40.5
degrees West, this satellite creates a dual-slot high value proposition
for expansion and for redundancy to programmers and broadcasters seeking
to grow their channel offerings, increase country-specific customized
feeds, and launch new HD channels. For more information regarding the
NSS-806 satellite, please visit http://www.ses.com/4628425/nss-806.
Concurrently, SES announced the launch of a new antenna seeding program
for all cable head-ends in Latin America. The antenna program will be
managed by Encompass Digital Media’s Latin American operation (formerly
TIBA), including procurement, distribution and logistics. The goal is to
provide comprehensive reach to all cable head-ends from Mexico to
“This is a major commitment from SES to the Latin America market,”
explained Dolores Martos, Vice-President Sales, Latin America. “SES
satellites continue to be a top choice among broadcasters and content
providers across Latin America. This latest initiative with NSS-806
allows television programmers, government organizations and broadcasters
to benefit from the satellite’s key position, wide coverage, redundancy
possibilities, and imminent antenna reach.”
As a vote of confidence in the new neighborhood, Encompass Latin America
has contracted with SES for multiple transponders to deliver premium
international and domestic channels throughout Latin America.
“SES continues to be a leader in the satellite video delivery market,”
added Juan Salleras, Executive Vice President and General Manager of
Encompass Latin America. “This latest investment by SES in a new
neighborhood comes at a time when there is high demand for additional
capacity, enabling our clients to expand and launch new services. Our
longstanding relationship with SES gives us the confidence to broaden
our very strategic business in Latin America onto the NSS-806
“This is with no doubt a very important agreement to the industry and to
the Latin American market,” added Ms. Martos. “We thank Encompass for
their continued confidence in SES and look forward to building a
successful community together.”

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
