HTS Ka or HTS Ku? What’s right for you?
At Harris CapRock, it’s our responsibility to help clients with mission-critical remote operations choose the right – not necessarily the trendiest – technologies for their needs. With all the recent talk about HTS Ka-band satellite solutions, you might think HTS Ka is the best frequency band for your voice and data service. But that’s not necessarily true. In fact, we recently undertook an analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of both HTS Ka-band and HTS Ku-band to determine which would be best suited for our customers who require high-availability, reliable communications. What we found might surprise you.
On this website, our most in-depth analysis focuses on geostationary HTS satellites, but it’s important to note the strengths and weaknesses of all types of HTS systems. That’s why we’ve provided an informative overview of medium earth orbit (MEO) and low earth orbit (LEO) HTS platforms as well.
