Yahsat

Yahsat 1A satellite at 52.5E orbit position has four broad area Ku band coverage beams:

Yahsat 1B has multiple Ka band spot beams and is used to provide Yahclick service:

The Yahclick service uses Hughes technology.  Home users will have the HN9260 modem and business users will have the HN9460 modem with two LAN ports and up to 20 PCs connected simultaneously.

Customer dishes will be 74 or 98 cm diameter.

A fair access policy will have a monthly allowance, with restrictions also based on traffic downloads over 72 hours and shorter periods.   A free-for-all period will apply from 1am-6am during which large downloads are recommended to be configured, such as automatic software upgrades, download of films etc.

Ka-SAT

83 spot beam satellite at 9 deg east orbit position providing satellite broadband internet access for customers in 20 European countries including UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland and Ireland.  The main retail resellers and service providers are Bentley Walker and El Molino.

Eutelsat subsidiary Skylogic in Italy operates a 12 hub Viasat Surfbeam network with the service being sold though many sales outlets as "Tooway" service.

Tooway is primarily intended to provide satellite internet access for domestic and small business customers in remote locations within the beam coverages shown. Business service, TV uplinking, and military services are possible also.

KA-SAT uses 27.5-29.5 GHz for the uplinks from the hub gateway earth stations.
KA-SAT uses 29.5-30 GHz for the uplinks from the customer VSAT terminals.
KA-SAT uses 17.7-19.7 GHz for the downlinks to the hub gateway earth stations.
KA-SAT uses 19.7-20.2 GHz for the downlinks to the customer VSAT terminals.

O3b

This is a satellite constellation system involving medium height satellites orbiting above the equator.  The satellites move across the sky. Each earth station sites need two motpr driven tracking antennas to provide a continuous connection.

Due to the cost of the susteomer terminals, the service is intended for very high bit rate town or community sites, where the local end users will be connected via terrestrial means, wireless and cable.

The satellites each have 12 spot beams. 2 of these beams are aimed at telport hub sites and the remaining 10 point at customer antenna sites.  As the satellites move from one region of the world to the next, so must the satellite antenna beams be stepped forwards to the next service are and then slowly tracked so as to remain pointing at that intended are until the time for the next big step forwards occurs.


Hotbird 6 (legacy network)

Legacy network that was forerunner of the Ka-SAT system.  One broad downlink coverage beam and four uplink beams.

Viasat Surfebam hub: Advanced coding/modulation and dynamic rain fade mitigation techniques are used to minimise outages during heavy rain. The return links and capacity are dynamically assigned to make best use of the satellite capacity available.
