Ka-band: The Next Big Step in Satellite Communications?

Higher throughput than Ku- or C-band and multi-spot beam capability enabling dynamic signal strength allocation promise to make Ka-band the frequency of choice for broadband satellite communications. In simpler terms, Ka-band is likely to generate demand merely because it is available, and will be increasingly employed in the future as Ku- and C-band spectrum gets depleted. This untapped resource has the potential to become as widely used and as profitable as are C- and Ku-band today.

This Frost & Sullivan research is a detailed analysis of the potential market for Ka-band satellite broadband services worldwide. It examines the drivers, restraints, and challenges that are likely to impact the market. This study provides demand analysis of the business, consumer, and government markets, as well as a comparative analysis of Ka with other frequency bands and terrestrial alternatives. It also includes a review of satellite applications best suited to Ka-band, and profiles of companies active in the Ka-band market.
