Satellite operators and satellite providers in the fight for the “faithful” customer

NSR (Nothern Sky Research) – a global leader in satellite services market research – wonders if the “faithful” satellite client for the maritime industry is good enough.

Fact: Satellite operators are looking for any profitability opportunities within value chains.

One of the ways to increase the profitability of satellite services is to create a customer base with a high percentage of so-called “faithful” customers, which significantly reduces the operator’s costs for their constant switching. In markets such as DTH (Direct To the Home, home satellite TV), entire geographic areas of “loyal” customers can be held by a single video signal and the high cost of rebuilding household antennas. In the mobile services sector, the capacity of such an “ecosystem” is formed by a satellite operator so that users move within its own satellite fleet. A classic example of creating an “ecosystem” for Continue reading

Satellite Internet with VSAT for remote work and travel

Equipment VSAT Internet and telephony allows you to get the usual communication service through a small diameter satellite dish. Just as some time ago mobile communications seemed to be something special, not intended for the mass consumer, VSAT satellite communications went the same way, providing satellite broadband Internet access and satellite telephony services to an increasing number of users. The development of VSAT technologies and their gradual penetration into the mass segment becomes possible due to lower prices for VSAT equipment and flexible pricing in the tariff line.

In addition to the land systems most in demand in remote regions with poor infrastructure, VSAT 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
