With origins in Australia, EAST Satellite Holdings Pty Ltd dates back to 2008. Tracing its evolution through several entities, today, EAST is a fast-paced, privately-owned enterprise actively engaged on five continents, mostly in the eastern arc, with Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites, as well as more recently, with Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellations. Since 2014, EAST has focused on its scalable and lucrative wholesale satellite broadband business based on compact Ultra-High Throughput Satellites (UHTS) operating in GEO. EAST's newWAVE satellites lead the world in terms of capacity delivered per dollar invested. EAST is a game changer and should be on everyone's radar - the best value in satcom.
Whether you are major customer or distributor of satellite services looking for inexpensive capacity, a mobile network operator looking for high quality satellite backhaul and backup, a satellite operator looking to decrease your costs and increase your margins by complementing your existing fleet, a sovereign nation seeking the social and economic benefits of broadband connectivity, or a defence/security agency which needs fast, secure and reliable broadband to guide your systems and protect your assets; EAST is the answer.
EAST's state-of-the-art newWAVE satellites will revolutionize the economics of broadband connectivity and make all satellites in-orbit and on-order obsolete. Each spacecraft consists of a compact medium power bus, an electric propulsion system and an extremely high throughput hybrid Free Space Optical / Radio Frequency communications payload that can be optimized in real-time (i.e. matching supply to demand). Each newWAVE satellite will deliver hundreds of Gbps across thousands of spotbeams over a regional footprint with initial coverage of Latin America, the Middle East & Africa and Southeast Asia.
EAST's newWAVE satellites will incorporate cutting edge "green" technologies:
- Electric propulsion systems
- Non-toxic satellite propellants
- High efficiency solar panels
- Re-usable launch vehicles
- Carbon neutral teleports
- Environmentally friendly manufacturing processes
EAST will be a "carrier's carrier" and will wholesale Ku- / Ka-band satellite broadband capacity with initial coverage of Latin America, the Middle East & Africa and Southeast Asia. EAST will offer unbeatable pricing to satellite operators and service providers (ISPs, telcos, CDNs, etc.) in comparison with competitors' GEO satellites and LEO constellations. EAST's newWAVE satellites will enable DTH operators and content providers to extend their legacy platforms with OTT streaming services offering subscriptions for live TV, VOD, pay-per-view events, console games, home security, music services, enhanced Internet applications, etc.
EAST will provision innovative "turnkey" solutions for residential, business and government customers
EAST will connect the unserved and the underserved and enable governments to deliver services on-line
