Cape Town, South Africa – The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA) announced that ViaSat, a leading global broadband services and technology company, has become its newest member and the first broadband satellite service provider to join the Alliance.

“ViaSat joining the DSA is a significant moment in the history of the Alliance,” said Kalpak Gude, president of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance. “It highlights that, as an Alliance, we take a broad approach to the efficient and effective management of spectrum, which is fundamental to bridging the digital divide. ViaSat’s focus on increasing worldwide connectivity, which can help to alleviate the spectrum crunch and connect the unconnected, aligns with several of the DSA’s core goals.”

The DSA welcomes ViaSat, its newest member, during the fifth annual Dynamic Spectrum Alliance Global Summit, which is being held in Cape Town, South Africa. During the Summit, Kalpak Gude and Peter Flynn, spectrum architect at ViaSat, will deliver a joint presentation on Satellites and Dynamic Sharing, which highlights a key theme at the event: opening more spectrum sharing opportunities across the globe through innovative dynamic access technologies and spectrum policies.
