Avanti Communications announces its expansion into the high growth mobility market sector

Avanti Communications Group plc (“Avanti”),  a leading provider of satellite data communications services in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), today announces its entry into the mobility market, a fifth focus vertical market for the Company.

The mobility sector is experiencing a significant increase in demand as consumers and enterprise users demand high speed connectivity wherever they are in planes, ships, trains or cars.  With In-Flight Connectivity being the fastest growing part of the market, Euroconsult estimates that by 2021 17,000 commercial airliners will be using High Throughput Satellites (HTS) with revenues rising from $1bn to $6.5bn over ten years.

Avanti’s strategy is to partner with best in class Service Providers to provide highly reliable connectivity to fill gaps in their networks in regions of peak demand.  The focus areas are as follows.

Air

 

Land

 

Sea

 

Avanti’s Mobility Proposition provides specialist Service Providers with in-fill coverage and capacity:

 

David Williams, Chief Executive of Avanti, said: “With an estimated value of over $6.5billion per annum, the mobility market offers high opportunity to Avanti. The Avanti system which, with the launch of HYLAS 4 stretches from the Americas to South Asia, was built with flexibility and quality in mind.  Therefore we have already been able to accommodate the first significant contract for network in-fill in the mobility market.  With the market adopting services faster than other operators can build new fleets, our existing capacity should find attractive growth opportunities in the mobility market, and we believe that the mobility market is likely to absorb much of the excess capacity in the World market.”
