ViaSat Broadband System Terminal Deliveries Reach 2 Million

CARLSBAD, Calif., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With installations in North America, Europe, and the Middle East ViaSat Inc. (Nasdaq: VSAT) has delivered over 2 million of its Ka-band broadband satellite terminals, making it the leading choice for Internet by satellite. The two million terminal total includes over one million second generation broadband terminals, which are part of the Exede satellite services network that features the world's highest capacity satellite, ViaSat-1.

Sarah Roberts/PR Newswire: ViaSat creates new ways to access advanced network applications with satellite and other wireless networking systems that enable fast, secure, and efficient communications to any location. The company provides networking products and services for enterprise and consumer IP applications and is a key supplier of military communications and encryption technologies to the U.S. government.

Customers and partners are using the family of satellite broadband terminals for consumer, enterprise, on-the-move, and portable applications because the ViaSat Broadband System changes the economics and performance of satellite communications for a number of markets:

  • Residential Internet that has enabled satellite to overtake all ISPs in delivering promised speeds, transforming satellite broadband from last-resort to a great Internet alternative.
  • Live event communications with sufficient capacity to supply thousands of spectators, vendors, sponsors, broadcasters and organizers with HD video streaming and high-speed data simultaneously, at virtually any location.
  • Faster in-flight Internet that can provide a guaranteed service level to everyone onboard, encouraging much higher take rates and engagement among passengers.
  • Economics that enable the real-time broadcast of big moments in life such as weddings, local sports, and graduations.
  • Portability that enables an office-like, enterprise-level broadband connection virtually anywhere with multiple simultaneous Internet connections.

"The applications – residential Internet, newsgathering, in-flight Internet, and enterprise – are familiar, but the service performance, ability to serve millions of users with high-speed services, and operation with the  highest capacity Ka-band satellites are what distinguishes ViaSat broadband from other systems that may be labeled high throughput satellite," said John Zlogar, VP of ViaSat Commercial Networks.

The new delivery milestones continue the success of SurfBeam®, the first satellite networking system designed from the ground up for economical, mass-market broadband networking. The ViaSat Broadband System combines the terminal integration, data speeds, network scale, and management systems needed to deliver a fast web experience that enables satellite service to compete effectively against terrestrial alternatives such as DSL and terrestrial wireless.
