HSINCHU, TAIWAN — October 4, 2012 —Microelectronics Technology Inc. (MTI), the world’s largest Ka-band satellite transceiver manufacturer, today announced it has been awarded with "Supplier of The Year” by ViaSat Inc. (Nasdaq:VSAT), an innovator in satellite and other wireless networking systems and services, for its excellent performance in quality and on-time delivery.
Being the pioneer and the largest manufacturer of Ka-Band transceivers in the satellite broadband market, MTI has entered Ku-Band and Ka-Band manufacturing partnership with ViaSat since 2003. To date, MTI has delivered more than 1.5 million Ka-Band transceivers to the European and North American marketplaces. In the beginning of this year, MTI was selected again and awarded a new manufacturing agreement by ViaSat to supply the new generation Ka-Band TRIA for its newly launched ExedeR Internet services. Thanks to the Ka-Band TRIA shipment, our VSAT revenue has increased more than double in the first three quarters this year.
There are approximately 1.2 million households that have subscribed to satellite broadband services in North America. Compared to about 15 million households that are still underserved or unserved with satellite broadband services, the business potential for Ka-Band transceivers in the next five years is expected to be tremendous.
“We are extremely honoured by this award,” said Mr. Allen Yen, President and CEO of MTI. “This award demonstrates MTI’s superior achievement on production expertise, dedication, flexibility and efficiency, which has been well recognized again by our customer. We will continue to remain focused on delivering the highest level of customer satisfaction and providing our customers with value to increases their competitiveness.”
