ViaSat Overview and Satellite Broadband

  1. 1. ViaSat Overview and Satellite Broadband Joint TechUK / UK Space Satcom Committee 7 July 2015 1
  2. 2. Agenda » Update on Satellite Broadband Paper to support IGS review › Paper drafted Jun 2015 (ViaSat and Avanti) › Review during Aug 2015 (wider industry & stakeholders) › To assist IGS market focus / development » ViaSat Overview › Ka Broadband Services › Other capability headlines 2
  3. 3. FCC’s 2013 and 2014 report “Measuring Broadband America” rates Exede ahead of ALL terrestrial broadband offerings in meeting its advertised speeds. Satellite Broadband – IGS Paper Update 3 “We will deliver faster internet, to help you work and communicate more easily. We will secure the delivery of superfast broadband in urban and rural areas to provide coverage to 95 per cent of the UK by the end of 2017, and we will ensure no one is left behind by subsidising the cost of installing superfast capable satellite services in the very hardest to reach areas. We will also release more spectrum from public sector use to allow greater private sector access. And we have set an ambition that ultrafast broadband should be available to nearly all UK premises as soon as practicable.” Conservative Manifesto May 2015
  4. 4. Report Highlights » BDUK – fixation with FTTC (£0.5 – 1Bn Govt investment), debate, media » Satellite not seen as “NGA” or superfast » Need to “mythbust” – based on FACTS › Avanti, Tooway, SES available › Exede no 1 ISP on performance 2013/14 » “Fixed” Satellite BB focused on householders, small business and “hard to reach” 1-5% (1.4M HHs) but… » Investment in exploitable technology for wider markets › emergency services, resilience for disasters, security, capacity for health, media/news, smart cities, IoT › Mobility including Aircraft » Understanding of stakeholders and customers and market leverage compared to “fixed” ie BT, Virgin makes a “small reseller” business challenging » Well suited for underserved 5-10% of the UK population. » Can deliver services at 24/30 Mbps now, aiming at 50-100 Mbps by 2016/17 » Utility, beyond that of fibre, for consumers and the national interest › additional capacity and resilient, hybrid networks » Govt action needed to ensure the digital divide does not worsen » Needs coordinated Government and Industry engagement. » Significant revenue from wider and export markets » Govt needs to harness true national demand and work with industry › so broadband ground networks and space based capacity can be put in place 4 Conclusions
  5. 5. Demanding needs in demanding conditions “NEW” DRIVERS » Medical » Intelligence / FMV » Situational Awareness » Combat ID » Counter IED » Targetting and Fires » Force Protection » Logistics » Morale and Welfare “CONSTANT” CHALLENGES » Electronic environment » Physical environment » Dust, heat, snow… » Logistic support » The threat to people » The threat to equipment » Size, weight and power » Training, ease of use » Interoperablity
