We’ve been reminded once again, and through a very tragic situation, that satellite communications are of paramount importance to the Asian region. The earthquake in Nepal that measured 7.8 on the Richter scale and caused thousands of deaths and untold damage served as another stark reminder that communications are the lynchpin of this modern world. As you read this, teams are working with satellite systems and services in the affected areas in the recovery effort, and teams from various organisations, NGOs and government agencies were on the scene within hours. The power of satellite, both in terms of communications and imagery, have helped [...]

Today, cruising means being just as connected as you are in your home or office. You can make calls, catch up with emails, surf the Internet, carry on gaming, and watch streamed movies a[...]

Though it may never be 100 percent achieved, we must strive to get as close to full interoperability as possible. NATO consists of a total of 28 independent Member States. This presents a great mix of nationalities that must operate together in an operational environment with different equipment t[...]

The communications system and service providers highlighted in this Directory have at least one important trait in common: They are all involved in rolling out satellite-based solutions that are literally transforming the way people and organisations communicate worldwide. This fact was brought into sharper focus recently by the Global VSAT Forum’s (GVF’s) High Throughput Satellite Roundtable, where the industry – and many of its leading customers — characterised the satellite industry’s latest impact as follows: Right now, dozens of new High Throughput Satellites have begun providing service in every major world region, with dozens m[...]
