HTS Overview

6
HTS Basics
• What is HTS and how it is related to Ka Band?

• Why HTS now?

• How does it work?

• Ka/HTS/MSB Ecosystems?

• What do we see in the future?

7
Is HTS always Ka?

8
HTS and Ka

• Not all Ka Satellites are High Throughput


• And not all High Throughput Satellites are Ka Band

KA-SAT EMEA coverage ABS-2 Ka coverage

10
What is better, Ka or Ku?
• Rainfade, bigger problem for Ka-band!
Reality: Cannot deny physics but larger antennas (same size as Ku), ACM, and
other technologies can minimize except for most demanding applications. Millions
of subscribers already using Ka-band satellite based services today.

• More Ka spectrum available and Ka free from interference issue!


Reality: Might have been true a few years ago, but most Ka slots already filed
for and coordination becoming bigger and bigger issue.

• Ka-Band products are more expensive, Ka has small span of


products.
Reality: For consumer-class services, price differences are minimal today between
Ku and Ka CPE.
Reality: For enterprise-class services, this can be an issue in some cases but it is
likely that any price difference etween Ka / Ku equipment will be eliminated within a
few years.

11
What is better, Ka or Ku?
• Ka has more total throughput, so is cheaper per bit!
Reality: Technically, higher frequency Ka allows a higher bit rate than Ku.
Reality: Cost per bit is determined by other factors than just frequency including
signal power (EIRP), number of spots/frequency reuse, transponder size, antenna
size, etc, etc.

• Ku is backwards compatible!
Reality: Largerly true today, but it becomes ever less of a factor over time.
Reality: The real decision factor is “Total Cost of Ownership” and this can greatly
vary from case to case.

12
Ka specific challenges
What is better, Ka or Ku?
Conclusions:

- Both Bands have a role to play. For each service provider the
decision will be dependent on their own factors.
- Applications / Clients on which the business plan is built
- Considerations of using existing infrastructure
- Access to spectrum

- Internal or different perspectives on Ka and Ku within our


industry should not confuse our potential clients
- Sales and Marketing shall provide unbiased advisory
- In the end the client should not care abouth the frequency
band if his/her demands are met!

HTS Forecasts - Euroconsult
• HTS capacity supply will nearly triple over the next three years alone, from 600 Gbps in
2014 to 1,720 Gbps in 2017 (FWD + RTN)
• More than 100 new HTS payloads and satellites are expected to launch over the next
decade
HTS – Broadband vs. non-Broadband Applications

• Excluding Broadband, more than 2/3 of HTS bandwidth demand will come from
outside NAM/WEU.

• Non-broadband applications will make up over 75% of HTS revenue growth to 2023

What is HTS’s value?

Widebeam vs Multi-spot beam

Wide Spot
• Satellite Cost: $150M-$250M • Satellite Cost: X2 = $400M - $500M
• 24-48 C/Ku Band 36Mhz TPX • 40-80 Ka 250Mhz-500Mhz Beams
• Requires: 1GHz • Requires: 1-1.5GHz GW Beams
• Throughput: 2Gbps – 4Gbps • Throughput: 40Gbps-60Gbps

• Bits transmitted over all regions – • Bits transmitted only on beam


Frequency separation – Beam separation

MSB is 1/10 cost per bit vs wide beam for lifetime of satellite! 24
HTS Satellites as Enablers

High Throughput Satellites offer


• More capacity
• Faster data rates
• At lower prices

The three are linked


Speed + Capacity + Price

Potential to change our value proposition as an industry!


• Meet growth in demand
• Expand to new markets
• Compete with terrestrial

25
Preparing Oil & Gas for HTS
• By 2023, 10% of Connected Oil&Gas sites will be for Exploration and Production,
12% of those will utilize HTS capacity (source NSR).
• Huge HTS capacity projected to fill the sky over the next years  Welcome
opportunity for the Oil&Gas / Offshore, where satellite internet demand continues to
escalate. Offshore rigs and platforms around the world are heavy users of satellite
broadband to support their use of voice, video, and data applications - ultimately driving
up the average consumption of bandwidth.
• Typical applications:
• Connection of rigs with onshore production teams
• Safety applications and equipment monitoring to track operation
• Personal connections for crew welfare
• As bandwidth demand increases, Oil & Gas global service providers are facing
pressure from their customers to deliver faster, more efficient networks that provide
higher availability and more capacity – especially in the remote waters of the
offshore oil and gas market.

High throughput satellites (HTS) will enable service providers to meet


their customer’s demands.
26
HTS Satellites as Enablers – Energy Markets
Bottom Line:
The Lower cost and Higher
Throughputs
from HTS and O3b are
shaping up to significantly
alter the Bandwidth
Paradigm within the Energy
Markets (Oil & Gas, Mining,
and Electrical Utility)

• HTS and O3b will add an additional 18 Gbps of throughput to Energy markets by
2022 – driven by higher provisioning and Inservice Unit growth.
• Key applications = enhanced oil recovery (EOR), crew-welfare, business
applications, mining automation, more requirements for data reporting.
• Traditional FSS Capacity will still exist to provide high-redundancy, but hybrid
solutions utilizing least-cost/highest throughput schemes continue to become the
status quo…. Even with C-band users.
• Wireless Backhaul and Energy to represent solid HTS markets.
