ST. JOHN, Jersey -- O3b Networks Limited, the developer of a new global, high-speed, low-latency global satellite-based telecommunications network for mobile operators and ISPs, today announced that it has signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar reseller agreement with Sky Fiber, one of Asia’s few managed service providers delivering turn-key, satellite-based capacity and connectivity solutions. This agreement will enable Sky Fiber to supply fiber-like quality telecommunication connectivity to the underserved and developing markets of South East Asia.

This multi-year agreement will enable Sky Fiber to provide Mobile/Wireless Backhaul, IP Trunking and Oil & Gas solutions to its customers. This deal establishes a partnership with the ability to deliver capacity and connectivity, at guaranteed QoS service levels and with transmission latency four times lower than previously possible.

“We are thrilled to be part of the O3b revolution and to offer this unique and cost effective service solution to our market. The incredible growth in demand for mobile internet data in the region is creating a vacuum in mobile backhaul for which the O3b Networks satellite constellation offers the most elegant solution. In addition to the backhaul demand, off-shore oil and gas facilities remain underserved and at the same time their requirements for reliable communications continues to grow at a rapid rate. We combine Mobile/Wireless Backhaul and IP Trunking to offer South East Asia connectivity turn-key options - at a reduced price. The end result will be an enhanced internet user experience, extended education, and improved off-shore operational efficiencies - all contributing to the economic growth of the region,” said Tom van der Heyden, Chief Executive Officer, Sky Fiber Corporation.
