High Throughput Satellites introduce a significant increase in capacity thanks to a high level frequency re-use and narrowly focused multi-spot beams. By contrast to a traditional wide-beam satellite technology, HTS satellites have much more throughput, greater bit/Hz performance, more data rates that can be transmitted by the same-size VSAT terminal. The next-generation High Throughput Satellites, like Intelsat EpicNG platform, extends this approach to the C-, Ku- and Ka-bands; make these satellites applicable for professional enterprise communications.
HTS technology is the most efficient strategy for further development of the overloaded geostationary orbit. Therefore, we will face a consistent replacement of the existing wide-beam satellites by next-generation HTS aircrafts. Along with above-mentioned benefits, HTS satellites bring some specific requirements that should be taken into consideration. The main challenge, when existing networks migrate to HTS satellites, is ability of the Hub to support multi-spot operation. UHP TDM/TDMA Hub allows to migrate from single Outroute (TDM) channel and associated Inroute (TDMA) channels to several subnetworks with dedicated Outroute and Inroutes channels for each spot of the HTS satellite. In the most cases such modification is performed just by a software activation, as far as every UHP router on the existing Hub may support one Outroute and few Inroute channels.
Substantial capacities of HTS satellites empowered by a high-performance UHP satellite routers can be addressed to various B2C, B2B and B2G market segments: consumer broadband, government, maritime and enterprise networks. HTS-enabled networks create a significantly more favorable economic model for wireless operators to use HTS for cellular backhaul. The advantages of UHP-built networks are based on an unprecedented throughput of UHP routers of up to 210 Mbps in each direction, highly-efficient adaptive modulations and coding up to 32APSK with 5% roll-off, etc.
UHP satellite routers provide customers with unique solutions to utilize a combination of C-, Ku-, and Ka-bands thanks to the built-in dual DVB demodulators with independent inputs and traffic balancer. A Combination of several bands within a single terminal ensures reliable communications for a real-time traffic and access to high-throughput Internet overlay based on upper frequency bands with lower cost per Mbps.
