Enterprise & Broadband
Enterprise broadband is becoming necessary in companies’ daily use. With more enterprise IT applications migrating to and running on private and/or public clouds, reliable high-speed IP/Internet connectivity has become more integral to daily business than ever before. Moreover, new High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) satellite systems can now provide more than 100 times the capacity of conventional fixed services satellites. Therefore, with this massive increase in throughput, HTS systems dramatically reduce the cost by bits per second. Therefore, bandwidth capacity unleashes the potential for whole new satellite applications and markets.
HTS satellite bandwidth economics shatter barriers that satellite-delivered enterprise broadband Internet access has faced in the past. Additionally, new HTS capacity is coming online around the globe to address market demand in areas unserved or under-served by terrestrial networks.
Unlike traditional satellite, HTS services can be competitive, in terms of speed, quality, and pricing, with terrestrial solutions in ex-urban areas. And HTS market opportunities are not just in the consumer broadband space. New Ka-Band and HTS satellites and technology are also creating opportunities to uniquely serve enterprise and government communications markets over the land, sea, and in the air. The reduced cost-per-bit of many HTS platforms also offers greatly improved economics for wireless operators’ use of satellite for cellular voice and data backhaul.
