Today’s challenge

Trying to manage your satellite communications traffic is becoming increasingly difficult, particularly in today’s bring-your-own-device world. It’s not always possible to detect which devices are connecting to the satellite network, which applications they’re running, how much data they’re consuming and how frequently they are being updated. Existing traffic management solutions for satellite communications struggle to handle these challenges.

INTEGRA is different

INTEGRA is a complete solution that delivers the first real-time application control for your satellite communications and the easiest on-board traffic management.


INTEGRA runs over a next-generation ground network that delivers reliable, end-to-end connectivity with multi-layered cybersecurity controls and optimised performance.

Intelligent global IP network

The ground segment is fundamental to delivering secure, end-to-end reliable, high performance for satellite communications. AST has made considerable investment in our INTEGRA Network to provide the quality of service expected of a trusted, tier one global provider. 

AST’s INTEGRA Network is based on the latest technologies available:

  • Carrier-grade leased lines from satellite operators’ gateways to the internet
  • Global IPVPN, which operates at 99.999% availability
  • Optimised internet routing
  • Data centres built to the highest industry standards
  • POPs in New York, London and Sydney
  • Redundant links for resiliency

The INTEGRA Network can support connectivity to any satellite IP network and communications equipment. It currently supports connectivity to the satellite networks of Inmarsat, Iridium, Thuraya, Telenor and VSAT services.


INTEGRA Cybershield

The INTEGRA network has multiple layers of cybersecurity controls to maximise protection against threats. The first layer, an advanced firewall, controls traffic and blocks abnormal connections. The second layer is web filtering with anti-malware and anti-virus protection, and a default block on software updates. And the third layer is intrusion prevention. This provides near “zero-day” protection against known and emerging threats, which can generate additional unwanted traffic.


End-to-end reliability

The INTEGRA Network delivers carrier-class connectivity from your satellite provider’s gateway into New York, London and Sydney POPs and onwards to the internet. It operates at 99.999% availability, with POP diversity and redundant links for greater resiliency. We have partnered with best-in-class data centres and terrestrial network providers to provide a trusted, reliable end-to-end connection.


Optimised performance

AST’s INTEGRA Network uses optimal routing to select the best possible path across an increasingly complex internet – taking latency, packet loss, route stability and congestion into account – to deliver improved, consistent performance than via standard internet carriers.
