Context Statement: The Launch of the HTS Era

 

The HTS 2018 RoundtableLEOs… MEOs… GEOs offers an in-depth exploration of the drivers and trends behind the continuing massive growth potential in the market for satellite-based broadband solutions. This is a market which kick-started longer ago than you may think, because it was just earlier this year that we were reminded of the launch of the high throughput satellite (HTS) era when, in June, Thaicom announced that it was considering ways to prolong the life of IPstar, its pioneering HTS spacecraft launched as far back as 200513 years ago.

 

The Operator as Provider

 

At that time IPstar was the highest capacity satellite in orbit, offering 45 Gbps of Ku-band capacity. Though projected to run out of fuel in 2022, this example of first generation HTS may exceed its in-orbit capability expectations by as much as two additional years.

 

Current and future generations of HTS technology provide capacity at prices significantly lower than that of the first generation exemplified by IPstar, prices which mean that satellite operators are moving to provision of services in addition to raw capacity.
