KA-SAT, the biggest HTS (High Thoughput Satellite)
in the sky today
35 x more capacity than traditional satellites

Digital Divide: an immediate issue
Why is broadband important?
 Impacts economic growth, corporate
efficiency, job creation, social
inclusion
How big is Europe’s digital divide?
 30 million households in Europe have
less than 2 Mbps broadband
 Of which 13 million with dial-up Internet
access
 A priority endorsed by EU27
(Broadband For All in 2013)
 Initiatives:
 France Numérique 2012,
 Digital Britain,
 National Broadband Scheme (Ireland)
3
A full integrated system, satellite and
ground segment
 Satellite: Very High Throuput on
KA-SAT, thanks to
 Ka-band spectrum
 Multi-spot beams (82)
 High frequency reuse (20 times)
 …with a very effective ground
technology
 10 gateways all over Europe
 linked to the main European PoP
and Internet backbone
 ViaSat SurfBeam 2 technology
Operators of HTS need to manage the full infrastructure

KA-SAT is a next-generation satellite.
It has 82 beams, operating in Ka-band, using
Beam Layout
Option 1 - KaSat
82 Beams with BW 0.46º and 0.88º
circular
polarization.

KA-SAT is a new net of 10 interconnected teleports. It is the first time
that 10 teleports work together feeding the same satellite for
broadband services.

Necessity of efficiency when using public funds
 Cost of roll-out of terrestrial technologies in dispersed areas increases
with remoteness
 E.g. fiber: 10-20 times higher for the last 10-20% of population

FUNDING THE INFRASTRUCTURE OR FUNDING
A BROADBAND SERVICE ?
 Objective has to be the provision of broadband services in the
shortest possible time at the most convenient cost
 High speed satellite connectivity is comparable to terrestrial
solutions; so USE FIRST WHAT YOU HAVE AVAILABLE
 Lower cost bandwidth
 Lower cost volume terminals
 Easy installation & operations
 Unrivalled capacity available
 Satellite Connectivity represents an opportunity for building NOT
ONLY INFRASTRUCTURE, BUT SERVICES FROM THE
BEGINNING.
 There are industrial areas in Italy where manufacturers go off from
 Satellite technology can keep them there; allowing for critical mass
to be established and qualify the use of fiber at a later stage.
