The joint solution will provide coverage to over 190 countries, with public-private roaming, and enable enterprises to gain greater control and ownership over their networks. NTT will offer use-case consulting and design, application development, system integration, implementation, and managed services. At the same time, SES will provide end-to-end satellite networks via O3b mPOWER, which will seamlessly integrate with NTT’s offering. NTT’s Edge as a Service includes IoT, Edge Compute, and Private 5G connectivity, delivered globally.
