[Excerpt] Maritime broadband connectivity has been a growth story for the satellite industry in the last decade. This was largely built on the increasing value proposition of Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) solutions.

While the introduction of Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA), of other optimization technologies and of the availability of more satellite capacity supported market growth in the early 2010s, it was the deployment of High Throughput Satellite (HTS) systems by several operators including Inmarsat, Intelsat, and others, and of the O3b constellation of SES, that contributed to an expansion of the maritime VSAT market in recent years.
