  • In industry with new challenges to meet Fivefold increase in traffic by 2017 Average use per user/month Middle East & Africa 4,000 3,500 Pentabytes 3,000 3 MB 2,500 X 73 X 120 X 524 2,000 1,500 1,000 500 0 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 Source: Cisco VN Forecast 2012-2017; IDC 2
  • 3G device shipments in Emerging Markets 1,200 m 1,000 m 800 m 600 m 400 m 200 m 0m 2010 Actual 2011 Actual 2012 Actual 2013 Forecast Emerging Markets 2014 Forecast 2015 Forecast 2016 Forecast 2017 Forecast Developed Markets Source IDC: WW Smartphone Market Forecast, Shipments by Geographic Region, 2013-2017 3
  • Throughput vs. Availability vs. Price Traffic Cost Voice centric Revenue Data centric Source: Unstrung Insider 4
  • We all agree: New networks need lower latency (LTE) “The most important [thing] is the latency” “…of course you have higher speed as well” Source: Hans Vestberg, Ericsson CEO, CNBC 24/09/2013 5
  • Mobile Networks demand Lower Latency Mobile Technologies Satellite Technologies 700 Milliseconds 600 500 400 300 200 100 GPRS Rel’97 EDGE Rel’99 EDGE Rel’4 WCDMA Rel’99 Evolved EDGE HSDPA HSPA LTE GEO O3b Until now, satellite backhaul technology evolution has not matched the increasing performance needs of mobile networks Source: Rysavy Research 6
  • What are we trying to adapt to? Real-Time Proximity “Small delay acceptable” “Instantaneous” Fastest wins” Finance E-mail Private Cloud ERP Trading Desk Main Frame Backup/recovery HR CRM Public Cloud Virtual desktop Voice Analytics Video Web/http Collaboration Procurement >1s Medical imaging Online gaming Archives Document management Transmission Latency Transactions Business Continuity Priority “No real-time requirement” Business Criticality Best effort Web 2.0 400-200ms >150ms Mobile broadband >0.1ms Latency Sensitivity 7
  • WEB: Faster Response Times Page Rendering MEO vs GEO accelerated link 8
  • VOICE Lower Latency = Superior Voice Quality • As the ITU model shows, when there is a one way latency greater than 200ms, user satisfaction drops dramatically. ITU G.114 Voice Quality Model O3b GEO • The long delay of GEO satellites is associated with poor voice quality and dissatisfied customers. • O3b’s much lower latency dramatically improves voice quality compared to GEO satellites. 9
  • O3b products Solutions 10 Steerable Beams per Satellite Supporting multiple backhaul scenarios. Rural Access 5-20Mbps Per Site Individual Cells Urban Semi Rural Access 155Mbps+ 10-100 Mbps Per Site Aggregation High Site Connectivity Small Clusters of Cells Connected via Microwave 10
  • O3b products Next Generation Backhaul (3G) Project • Objective – Increase broadband penetration into rural/remote Malaysia • Benefit – Achieve National Broadband Initiative (NBI) Objective Solution • O3b capacity combined with micro wave aggregation • Shared site infrastructure & RAN (node B) among operators Connecting 111 villages with 3G services More than 100,000 people are getting connected with the help of O3b 11
  • O3b products International capacity to the continent Monrovia Kinshasa Juba Mogadishu Antananarivo Scalable capacity between 100 Mbps - 1.2 Gbps 12
  • Fundamentals behind our approach Unlimited Spectrum Scalable Satellite Level Redundancy Match fiber for QoE Manufacturing Synergies Lower cost 13
  • O3b’s Latest Developments 14
