AsiaSat 8 provides the highest power ever launched in Asia, which translates to high throughput and the use of very small antennas while on the move. Thai Aerospace Industries Company Limited is one of the leading VSAT solution providers in Thailand with extensive service locations across the South East Asia and the Middle East, especially Oman. The company tailors its solutions for TV broadcast and mobility service for cruise and ferry, commercial shipping, aero and land-based transportation.

According to Philip Balaam, the Vice President of Sales and Business Development at AsiaSat, South East Asia is one of the world’s fastest growing markets for satellite services, due to increased commercial and government communications needs, which equates to increased commercial and government comms needs.
