(New York, NY, July 11, 2019) – The World Teleport Association (WTA) today released Managing VSAT Networks for Optimum Performance, a new report that shares insights from thought leaders in the industry on the top challenges facing VSAT operators, future-proofing networks to address these challenges and what impact they expect from 5G and LEOs.

“For a technology launched in the 1980s,” said executive director and report editor Robert Bell, “VSATs have shown a remarkable ability to adapt and thrive. In fact, they are on a growth curve – and that brings severe challenges in technology, quality of service and profitability. We are grateful to our contributors for sharing how those challenges can best be met.”

WTA members can access the report by signing in to their accounts on the WTA website. Non-members can purchase the report for US$1650. WTA Members may directly download the report by following this link.

More about Managing VSAT Networks for Optimum Performance
VSAT networks were once a standalone solution to a fundamental problem: how to connect dozens, hundreds or thousands of locations on a unified platform delivering dependable quality of service regardless of local conditions. Today, VSAT networks operate in a different and more complex world. RF interference continues to rise – generated in no small part by poorly installed and operated VSAT terminals. What was once a closed RF network is now an integrated RF-IP network integrating seamlessly with the enterprise network, which must be managed by IT staff with little or no satellite experience. The sheer number of VSAT terminals in the network, and the huge growth in traffic, make networks harder than ever to manage without robust analytics and automation.

In Managing VSAT Networks for Optimum Performance, WTA invites teleport and satellite executives to describe the challenges that their networks face today and the techniques and tools they use to overcome them. They share their view of what works best today and what solutions are in development to tackle the greater challenges of the future.

The report is sponsored by Kratos.
