VSAT 2.0: The Next Wave of Satellite Innovation

The satellite industry has a very good record of technological innovation, but it is mainly focused on only one aspect, which is maximizing the use of the limited satellite spectrum resource. Satellite spectrum has a significantly higher cost compared to terrestrial bandwidth such as DSL and fiber, and this high cost has driven the evolution… Read More »

How Will High Throughput Satellites Impact the Satellite Industry?

High Throughput Satellites (HTS) are poised to deliver much higher capacity than traditional satellite services at a mere fraction of the cost. Today, HTS can provide more than 100 GBps of capacity this is more than 100 times the capacity offered by conventional Ku-band satellites. HTS is based on spot beam technology which enables frequency… Read More »

The Future of High Throughput Satellites for Service Providers

Understanding High Throughput Satellites High throughput satellites (HTS) are communications satellites that provide 10 or more times the total throughput of a regular fixed communications satellite for the same amount of allocated spectrum. New high throughput satellites today can provide more than 100 GBps of capacity, which is more than 100 times the capacity offered… Read More »
