Taking Satellite Communications into the Future

As global bandwidth demand continues to explode, satellite communications have become the clear choice of service providers for delivering always-on broadband connectivity for any application to any point on the planet. The proliferation of very high throughput satellites (VHTS) and Non GEO Satellite Orbit (NGSO) constellations as well as technological advances such as 5G, have removed the cost barriers for satellite connectivity and opened up huge business opportunities and new markets for service providers.

Developing new, cutting-edge products and finding creative ways to take advantage of existing and emerging satellite communications technologies is what separates Wavestream from the competition and provides added value for our customers.

For over 30 years, Wavestream has been a pioneer and leading innovator in satellite communications. Our dedication to constant product and business innovation places our customers at the forefront of the dynamic satellite communications industry. We invest heavily in R&D and operate five R&D centers worldwide, where our skilled engineers develop innovative, future-ready solutions to support evolving customer and market needs.
