Press release date: August 26, 2014

Both airborne and fixed-site terminals in development

CARLSBAD, Calif. – Customers are beginning to place advance orders for next-generation Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) terminals from ViaSat Inc. (NASDAQ:VSAT) for operation over the recently announced ViaSat worldwide L-band network. The orders, totaling 3,150 terminals, include a mix of both fixed-site machine-to-machine (M2M) and airborne units that are scheduled for delivery next year. Vehicular, maritime, and asset tracking terminals are also available for advance order.

As previously announced, ViaSat is providing an upgrade to MSS networks by using an innovative new L-band waveform optimized for high capacity. The technology leverages ViaSat experience in serving the U.S. government, enterprises, and consumers with highly secure, reliable, and rugged satellite-based global services. By using bandwidth more efficiently, the new satellite technology brings a number of performance improvements to MSS customers:

• High capacity
• Integrated security
• Broadcast and multicast
• Low latency
• Netted voice
• Guaranteed availability

"These advance orders are an indicator of the value we are bringing to this market," said Phil Berry, vice president, ViaSat MSS. "They represent the strong response we are seeing to the combined dimensions of value our new network offers, and how that can optimize the total cost of ownership."
