Now, as the industry rolls the dice on Non-GEO HTS constellations, FPA manufacturers with a government focus maybe hitting the jackpot…
As FPA manufacturers find themselves stuck between the ultra-competitive aero market and the opportunistic, but challenging to meet, consumer broadband market, the Enterprise broadband market is fast becoming the next step in the evolution of FPA technology.
Flat panel antennas (FPAs), essential for Non-GEO HTS connectivity, are considered by NSR as the terminal of tomorrow, but their success rate varies wildly, from one market to another.
Does this mean the line between a retail and wholesale player is fading with upstream players competing with their own customers? Is this the right strategy for the Fixed VSAT ecosystem?
Consumer Broadband has been at the epicenter of the buzz created by the planned mega-constellations and upcoming very high capacity satellites. SpaceX, OneWeb and now Amazon plan to connect the unconnected billions globally, using Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellations.
