The advent of high-throughput satellites (HTS) enables network service providers to offer a new generation of communications solutions. HTS systems combine the exceptional spectrum efficiency and performance of spot-beam antennas with ultra-wideband transponders to enable unprecedented levels of bandwidth and throughput. Each spot beam reuses frequencies in multiple carriers so that a single HTS spacecraft can provide five to ten times the capacity of traditional satellites. For the customer, this provides the potential to dramatically increase data rates, upwards of 100Mbps to a single site, and improve application performance compared to traditional satellite based communications.

Despite this tremendous potential, there is a great deal of misperception and lack of understanding about these new technologies among both customers and the industry at large. This is compounded by marketing exuberance from some satellite fleet operators with their own specific and often proprietary flavors of these emerging technologies. Customers and satellite network service providers alike need an unbiased engineering perspective on the features, benefits and trade-offs of emerging HTS technologies.
