Introduction & Backdrop

 

Satellite communications continue to grab headlines. In Africa & the Middle East, Asia, the Americas, and Europe, high-throughput satellite (HTS) communications now deliver 30-100 Gbps connectivity to millions of users at subscription rates that transform the broadband value proposition… as well as the strategic connectivity plan.

 

Amidst this historic transition, major players have also thrown their hats into the ring – commercial heavy-weights such as Google, Qualcomm, and Virgin Galactic – announcing plans to launch constellations of hundreds, and in some cases thousands, of low-Earth orbit satellites for global communications.

 

While these “mega-LEOs” prepare for launches on a scale never before seen, HTS companies are extending their services into nearly every operating environment. On planes, trains and ships, and in cities, villages and living rooms, the full spectrum of enterprises – and now consumers – are taking advantage of applications that require new definitions of “access”.
