Member Profile

SES World Skies, a division of SES, is seeking business partners for a shared Teleport opportunity in the Northwest region of the U.S.  SES World Skies provides satellite communications service on a worldwide basis via a global fleet of 40 satellites in 26 orbital locations.  SES provides global solutions in the areas of Media, Broadcasting, Enterprise, Mobile Broadband, and Government Services through both company owned and strategic 3rd party teleport partners.

Business Partner Roles
SES understands the value of teaming with leading teleport operators, throughout the world, for the global transmission and distribution of media and data services. Such an operational alliance is core to the way that SES World Skies does business.  As such, SES World Skies is exploring the possibility of divesting or partnering in one of its global facilities.  The teleport ("the Brewster Teleport”) is located four miles north of the community of Brewster in North Central Washington State.  Such an operational alliance at Brewster, will build upon the foundation of an existing portfolio of nearly 300-Mbps of value-added services. The facility is currently the US gateway for many satellites and provides a broad range of teleport transmission and hosting services across multiple market segments, including IP, video, and government services.  Furthermore, the partnership will enhance the ability to grow the video, Internet and data connectivity into the Pacific Ocean Region (POR) of the U.S. and Asian markets.  .  An ideal partner would potentially deliver highly reliable, customer-centric, cost-effective teleport operations and services from this facility.  Flexibility and entrepreneurship are key qualities desired in our teleport partners as we consider our partners as important as our customers --  together we develop offerings and grow customer relationships.

The Facility
The Brewster Teleport location benefits from both domestic and international visibilities, with antennas that can serve orbital locations from 53°W to 186°W.  This allows it to access all of the US domestic arc as well as the Pacific Ocean Region, making it ideally suited for the growth in east-west media distribution, government, and enterprise services.  Brewster is strategically positioned to support gateway communication services to the Asian and Pacific Ocean markets.  The Brewster Teleport has office and technical space totaling 30,000 square feet.  It is a 100-acre site with 40 acres enclosed in high security fencing.  The teleport features 45 C, Ka- and Ku-band antennas.  The site has full power backup systems, and is served by state-of-the-art fiber interconnections with Tier-1 ISPs and direct access to Seattle, Los Angeles and the I-5 corridor, with connectivity to the Vyvx PoP in Seattle and the rest of the U.S.  Existing staff bring a recognized customer-centric attitude as well as broad technical skills and experience.   The site also has significant expansion capacity in terms of land, antennas, indoor technical space, office space, power, and fiber connectivity.
