SES Networks Powers Carnival Corporation’s MedallionNet™ Connectivity Experience
MedallionNet leverages multi-band antennas uniquely configured in an innovative shipboard formation to minimize any potential impact to guest connectivity due to seasonal weather or ship positioning, and it fuses multi-orbit satellite bandwidth to deliver a truly immersive guest connectivity experience.
Carnival’s MedallionNet to set industry apex for Wi-Fi bandwidth capacity at sea powered by SES Networks
Carnival Corporation, the leisure travel company, will establish a new industry apex in connectivity capabilities today at sea when it attempts to make an unprecedented level of bandwidth available to guests on board Regal Princess from its Princess Cruises brand.
Using its newly developed connectivity service, MedallionNet, and working with SES Networks, the world-leading provider of satellite-enabled connectivity solutions, Carnival Corporation and Princess Cruises will attempt to achieve bandwidth of 1.5 gigabits per second, the most ever delivered to a mobile platform. The record attempt will demonstrate that connectivity is no longer a limitation to cruise vacations. Guests using MedallionNet have access to the internet at speeds that eclipse typical land-based hotel connectivity performance levels.
MedallionNet is made possible through an inventive array of antennae, networks, equipment and configuration innovations that combine to make the Regal Princess the only vessel on the planet that is currently capable of achieving 1.5 gigabits per second and more.
The system leverages multi-band antennas uniquely configured in an innovative shipboard formation to minimize any potential impact to guest connectivity due to seasonal weather or ship positioning, and it fuses multi-orbit satellite bandwidth to deliver superior connectivity.
By combining multiple sources of bandwidth with hundreds of shipboard access points to achieve the highest capacity shipboard network ever brought to a cruise ship, MedallionNet introduces a level of service reliability and signal pervasiveness not previously achieved on ships sailing at sea.
SES Signs launch Contract with SpaceX for 4 O3b mPOWER Satellites
“O3b mPOWER is the cornerstone of our multi-orbit, cloud-enabled, high-performance network that will serve our enterprise, mobility and government customers into the next decade, and we are merely a year away from its first launch,” said Steve Collar, CEO of SES. “We have a strong and long-standing partnership with SpaceX and we are excited to add the launches of additional O3b mPOWER satellites that will drive higher throughput, greater efficiency and substantially more bandwidth to our industry-leading network.”

SES uses beamforming to steer capacity on ships
The terrestrial mobile industry isn’t the only one looking to bring software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) further into the picture. These sorts of techniques are applicable to the satellite industry as well, and it’s every bit as interested in being a part of 5G as anyone.
SES, which is one of the participants helping Alphabet X’s Project Loon provide service in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, is already using dynamic bandwidth allocation and beam steering via SDN principles on its O3b fleet. The current generation allows it to steer beams and dynamically control the amount of bandwidth to endpoints within those beams, according to Hemingway.
“We do that by literally following the ship with a high-capacity beam and using software control techniques to follow those ships wherever they go on their itineraries,” Hemingway told FierceWirelessTech. “Those kinds of innovations have completely changed what we’re able to provide in terms of raw throughput, the latency and the price.”
In its next generation of O3b satellites, the “follow-the-ship” concept will direct many more beams. SES acquired O3b about a year ago and recently announced that it has contracted its first O3b mPower technology partner, Boeing Satellite Systems, to build seven MEO satellites. The constellation will have 30,000 fully shapeable and steerable beams that can be shifted and switched in real time to align with its customers’ capacity needs. O3b mPower will provide coverage to an area of nearly 400 million square kilometers, or four-fifths of Earth’s surface.
SES fetes launch of 4 MEO satellites, bridge for 5G
SES Networks witnessed a significant milestone in its "other 3 billion" journey when four medium Earth orbit (MEO) satellites from the company's O3b Networks unit were launched by Arianespace at the Guiana Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana, on Thursday.
Typically, SES doesn’t do MEO-based backhaul for U.S.-based mobile network operators; its geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) satellites offer enough coverage over the U.S. to provide the required backhaul needs. But, SES is learning from U.S. operators to prepare for mPOWER, which is coming in 2021.
“Where we really feel we can help the U.S.-based MNOs is with 5G rollouts,” Watko said.
With the pure densification of 5G networks, the mPOWER fleet will make a difference. “The 5G operator will really drive the needs and demands for backhaul as a whole and that’s where we see O3b mPOWER being that next leap for them.”
“O3b” historically has referred to the “other 3 billion” people who are un-connected or under-connected in the world, although some speculate the size of the market has grown to something more like 4 billion since that term was coined.
Is 5G a Deadly Trigger for the Coronavirus?
The novel coronavirus has spread unevenly around the world, clustered in several hot pockets, while leaving other areas with scant outbreaks...
...Japan took a different route with the novel virus. It has only 1,200 cases and 130 deaths. 712 infections—more than half of the entire country—came from one supercluster in the Diamond Princess cruise ship, docked in Yokohama. The IOC recently canceled the Tokyo Summer Olympics, not due to the outbreak in Japan, but likely from so many nations that are now battling the virus.
