ViaSat Inc. and Boeing Company Partner to Offer the ViaSat Flexible Broadband System

ViaSat Inc. and Boeing Company have partnered to offer the ViaSat Flexible Broadband System. This system brings a new level of flexibility, high-capacity, and affordability to service providers, enabling them to start with a smaller investment, focus capacity to match the bandwidth demand in their markets, and scale their infrastructure as expansion is needed. The Flexible Broadband System is designed to provide the satellite bandwidth economics in a more affordable package, tailored to regional operators. The system is based on the most advanced ViaSat High-Capacity Satellite System, the same flexible networking system developed for the ViaSat-2 satellite scheduled to launch next year. ViaSat and Boeing are also adapting a ViaSat-2 based payload to the Boeing 702SP (small platform) satellite bus to provide affordable and flexible satellite broadband anywhere in the world. ViaSat networking technology can effectively compete with terrestrial service alternatives. The new Flexible Broadband Network uses a reinvented system architecture to deliver cost-savings, more flexible capacity allocation, and continuous technology upgrades, including: flexible design for broad coverage and the ability to shift or add bandwidth capacity anywhere within the satellite coverage area; and compact, next-generation RF Satellite Access Nodes, with an overall footprint size similar to cellular wireless towers, replacing large teleport/gateway installations increasing fault tolerance, reducing hardware, and cutting costs. The new Flexible Broadband Network also delivers: dynamic system architecture for auto shifting traffic among gateways, increasing operational performance and virtually eliminating network down time; ViaSat Satellite Terminal Reference Design that makes core terminal components available for third-party terminal manufacturing; and fast rollout of fixed, nomadic, and mobile services using ViaSat Network Services, a cloud-based Platform as a Service, for constant network performance.
