The demonstration operated in both Ka and Ku frequencies delivering download speeds of 130Mbps with dozens of concurrent users
February, 06, 2018 — Wavestream Corporation, a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announces that its dual-band Ku/Ka aero terminal achieved unprecedented performance at a live demonstration in China. The terminal reached speeds of 130Mbps with dozens of concurrent users enjoying: browsing, video streaming, video and voice calls as well as various chat applications.
The demonstration took place in a cabin user environment together with Air Esurfing, operating with Wavestream’s fully integrated dual-band antenna terminal as well as the Taurus Modman. Wavestream’s high-performance Modman as well as the high-gain antenna panel in Ka-band, were key factors in the outstanding results of the demonstration.
Wavestream’s fully deployed mobility baseband is already operational and in use on China’s first domestic HTS Ka satellite. The deployed network not only improved end-to-end results, but also significantly reduced the complete IFC system deployment time.
“I am pleased to demonstrate our high-performance solution supporting both Ka and Ku in a single aero terminal. This demonstration is a major milestone in Wavestream’s strategy to leverage our global IFC expertise and leadership for adoption to the local Chinese market,” said Jun Xiang, General Manager, Wavestream China. “This achievement benefits our local partners who can now cost-effectively expand their service to both local and global airlines across their network.”
Wavestream’s Ku/Ka antenna will be undergoing supplemental type certificate (STC) in the coming months.
