Satellite internet services for faster internet access

Nov 21st 2014 at 3:24 AM

Traditional markets have experienced many benefits from the satellite technology in telephony and broadcasting. The technology has covered large geographical areas using single beam transmission. Now there is demand for two-way broadband access in the areas not served well by existing telecommunication infrastructure. The modern broadband satellite services can cater to the demands of multimedia agencies and other sectors around the world. Ever since these services have become evident, their demands have increased to aid in expanding various business services across the globe.

The modern technology exists to create a profusion of interconnected broadband networks having a vibrant and competitive market to access them. However, the satellite sector ought to have regulatory certainty and liberalization on a global scale to fulfil its potentials. As the use of radio-frequency spectrum is increasingly being constrained, there is an urgent need to remove the barriers identified in combining terrestrial and satellite networks. Furthermore, as increasing numbers of companies are launching satellites and claiming orbital locations, licensing and access to national markets should turn less restrictive widening the scope of services.

Growth in satellite broadband

As noted in the past few years, the cost has been coming down to a point where satellite broadband is becoming competitive with other options. Furthermore, a new generation of applications with high throughput requirements has marked their presence, and satellites are ready to meet these needs. The broadband satellite services are optimized to deliver services like virtual private networks, internet access and personal access. On the global level, the demands for services have increased and the number of subscribers to the broadband services is expected to rise from 1.5 million to 6 million in 2020.

However, consumers are fickle, and two disadvantages need to be addressed promptly – first, latency (the time taken to send and receive a message); secondly, attenuation in the satellite signals by rain or other atmospheric conditions. The latency depends on the distance between the satellite and the earth, and the second problem is more common in the tropical areas and it affects the higher frequency bands only.

Global approaches

There are many companies taking part in this competition in order to make high speed internet possible. Customers can rely on the broadband services for flawless internet access or pure connectivity. The set of broadband services include Internet backbone, managed network services, virtual network operator, internet access service, international private leased services, and so on. The satellites are providing mobile voice and data communications worldwide – at sea, on land and in the air.
