High-throughput communication satellites

  • HTS helps in providing high speed internet at cheap rates
  • HTS reuses satellite ‘beams’ several times over smaller areas.
  • It will drive a next generation technology revolution. Individuals, planners in government, businesses like banks, ATMs, reservation systems, cellular and private networks and users in remote areas are expected to benefit from improved connectivity.
  • HTSs provide at least twice the total throughput of a normal satellite for the same amount of allocated orbital spectrum thus significantly reducing cost-per-bit.
  • A fundamental difference to existing satellites is also the fact that HTS are linked to ground infrastructure through a feeder link using a regional spot beam dictating the location of possible teleports.
