Hughes was again confirmed as the leading global provider in both enterprise and consumer sectors of the Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) satellite communications industry by London-based COMSYS, one of the industry’s leading research organizations. This continues a legacy that dates back more than 30 years since Hughes invented and deployed the first commercial satellite network in the mid-1980s.
The 14th Edition of the COMSYS VSAT Report states that Hughes was the #1 VSAT vendor in 2016, in terms of units shipped (consumer and enterprise) and total revenue from hardware sales. Hughes combined enterprise and consumer VSAT market share stands at 50.2%, with more than 6 million units shipped to customers in over 100 countries. “Hughes’ presence casts a shadow over almost every player in the market,” according to the report.
The report cites several key drivers behind customers’ decisions to choose Hughes, including market leadership, competitive pricing, and cutting-edge products.
“Hughes is the only company that has been able to demonstrate sustained leadership in technology, market share, and financial results in the VSAT business. This undoubtedly gives its customers a confidence which cannot be matched by others,” said Susan Bull, senior analyst at COMSYS.
