viasat inc (VSAT) Key Developments

ViaSat Inc. and Eutelsat Communications Enter into Pioneering Agreement to Link High-Capacity Ka-Band Satellite Networks

ViaSat Inc. and Eutelsat Communications have entered into a pioneering agreement that will enable service access and roaming on each other's high-capacity satellite networks (KA-SAT for Eutelsat and ViaSat-1 for ViaSat). Both Ka-band networks, representing well over half of all Ka-band capacity on orbit worldwide, share the same high-capacity satellite ecosystem, enabled by the ViaSat Broadband System, along with other ground infrastructure owned and operated by Eutelsat and ViaSat. The resulting high-capacity service area will span North America, Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. Customers will be able to operate an array of fixed and mobile services including in-flight connectivity, maritime, emergency relief, oil and gas operations and government applications anywhere within the combined coverage areas. The agreement includes provisions for future satellites and follow-on technologies as they complement current Eutelsat and ViaSat High Throughput Satellites. That future includes ViaSat-2, scheduled for launch in 2016, which is designed to cover a broader footprint in North America, Central America, the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and to bridge the North Atlantic to form a blanket of high-capacity coverage across the region.

Operating over the performance L-band satellites, the ViaSat technology uses satellite bandwidth more efficiently to bring a number of performance differentiators to a variety of customers in the energy, utilities, logistics, and enterprise sectors: High availability; Integrated security; Broadcast and multicast; Low latency and Netted voice.
