NewSat News: VSAT 2012 is pushing through
VSAT 2012 is pushing through despite the VSAT industry’s major changes as it is planned to be held on the Lancaster London Hotel in London, the capital city of England and the United Kingdom, the largest metropolitan area in the United Kingdom and the largest urban zone in the European Union by most measures, September 11-14.
After years of scarcity of spacecraft bringing terabytes of bandwidth at vastly reduced costs–perhaps one tenth of current levels, or even lower–are now coming into service. These new satellite systems and ever growing fibre networks bring plentiful bandwidth, but at least, initially, restricted accessed.
The COMSYS VSAT Conference is where the pivotal players in the VSAT industry meet for partnerships, plans, business strategies and decisions to be made. On their meeting, they are all under the objective of the conference which is to focus on issues, latest developments and strongest areas of opportunity in the global marketplace by bringing together the major-decision makers and most successful exponents in the industry.
NewSat, Australia’s largest independent satellite communications provider–communications satellite (COMSAT), an artificial satellite sent to space for the purpose of telecommunications–to date, will be attending VSAT 2012 also for discussion in the Jabiru-1 satellite, scheduled to take off in 2012. It will provide high-powered Ka band capacity over the Middle East, Africa (MENA Region) and Asia. It will also provide “new” capacity ro these regions, offering a range of multi-sport regional and steerable beams, delivering “raw” capacity and flexible payloads. It will also cater to mobile communications carrier and private and public organizations in the said regions. NewSat-owned Jabiru is Australia’s first independently owned satellite operator to manage a fleet of commercial Ku band and Ka band satellites.
