Satellite networks to fulfil future business data needs

Recent years have seen the development of more capable and effective satellite solutions that are equipped to fulfil the growing data demand well into the future.

One such innovation is the development of high-throughput satellite (HTS) which features concentrated spot beams over a smaller surface area over the earth, but are powerful enough to transmit up to 20 times more data than traditional wide-beam satellites.

The two different types of beams are ideal for different applications. Wide beams are better suited for distributing to a business that requires low-data usage, but over multiple sites across a wider geographic area such as a country or region.

On the other hand, the higher throughput of spot beams can enable businesses that require high-data usage and are located within small vicinity. Satellites that feature this unique combination of beams are able to do both, effectively catering to different business needs.
