Competition in the VSAT market leads to the development of marine satellite communications

The article considers the current state of affairs in the maritime satellite communications market and forecasts Euroconsult specialists for the next 10 years.
Increasing consumer demand, a new generation of satellite technology and increasing competition among operators may result in VSAT services occupying about 70% of the maritime satellite communications market in less than 10 years, experts at Euroconsult say. Continue reading

New Broadband Mini VSAT

Launched seven years ago, the mini-VSAT broadband network was the first to leverage the capabilities of spread spectrum technology to provide global multi-megabit services to ships at sea with small, powerful antennas.

Providing the opportunity to take full advantage of the VSAT service – namely, speed and economy – by installing only compact and affordable on-board antenna systems, has become a truly winning strategy for mini-VSAT. Therefore, it is not surprising that mini-VSAT Broadband has become a best-seller among marine VSAT services.

Encouraged by this success, KVH has created the next generation of mini-VSAT Broadband Network. Using ACSM technology (adaptive coding, expansion, and modulation), network bandwidth has tripled over the past year. More efficient transmission technology, enhanced satellite throughput and automatic updates for the entire installed base of antenna systems – all these have become the basic principles of a network that Continue reading
