Direct broadcast satellites

Direct-broadcast satellites transmit signals for many consumer applications, including satellite television and radio. Satellite radio is designed to be received by small mobile antennas (like car-mounted antennas) and provides consistent programming across broad geographic areas.

Fixed satellite service

Fixed satellite service (FSS) satellites are used for television content distribution, private corporate networks, and for applications such as banking, inventory control and distribution of training and digital signage. FSS satellites also play a key role in emergency operations and news reporting and can provide backup to critical terrestrial networks that cannot risk down time.
