The explosive growth of high throughput satellite (HTS) capacity and the consequent demand for extremely high data rate links is a reason for ViaLite’s adoption to leading teleport operators.

Information compiled by the World Teleport Association (WTA) has shown that eight out of the top 10 teleport operators ranked by revenue were ViaLite customers last year. This compares with 2017, when ViaLite supplied its RF over fiber links to the top seven operators.

With their wide dynamic range, the company’s L-Band HTS RF over fiber interfacility links are used within teleports as well as long distance link systems. They are typically used for main traffic, back-up traffic and commercial and governmental applications.

The results for the Global Top Teleport Operators are produced by the WTA by surveying teleport operators around the world, as well as referencing the published results of publicly held companies.

The WTA is dedicated to advocating the interests of teleport operators in the global telecommunications market and promoting excellence in teleport business practice, technology and operations.
