AST has secured access to Panasonic's global network coverage, which includes both existing and contracted HTS capacity. Panasonic maintains the world's largest HTS Ku-band network in the world, which leverages wide and spot beams ensuring the greatest throughput and coverage to deliver high-speed, high-capacity internet and global live television to customers across the commercial aviation, business aviation, oil and gas, mining, merchant maritime and passenger vessel markets. HTS beams deliver throughput significantly greater than traditional satellites, amplifying the complexity and incremental costs of all the constituent network elements. This includes the need for more teleports and more uplinks – which carry with them higher associated costs, as well as a far larger terrestrial backbone. With this agreement in place, AST can now deliver comprehensive HTS network services without having to put significant ground infrastructure in place to support the complex requirements created by multi-spot-beam satellites. "Partnering with strategic organizations that maintain strong customer relationships in various niche market segments provides an exciting opportunity for growth in serving new customer sets," said Ian Dawkins, CEO at ITC Global. "By taking on the capital expense requirements associated with HTS networks, we remove a critical barrier to entry for our reseller partners." "We are pleased to add Panasonic to our growing VSAT portfolio," said Stuart Castell, Director of AST. "This addition will enable us to provide our customers with global Ku and C-band coverage plus access to the largest coverage of Ku high throughput services available today. Our partnership with Panasonic puts us at the forefront of maritime VSAT connectivity, enabling us to offer our innovative and industry-leading applications globally." The Panasonic network covers 100 percent of all major oil and gas hotspots worldwide, 99.6 percent of aero traffic routes, and greater than 98 percent of global maritime routes. Panasonic's network offers globe-wrapping capacity, growing to 250+ transponder equivalents (TPE) in 2017, which equates to roughly 25 satellites. As the world's largest buyer of commercial space segment, Panasonic is revolutionizing today's VSAT market with game-changing pricing and service delivery.

We explore conditions determining which anti-leakage policies might be more effective complements to domestic greenhouse gas emissions regulation. We consider four policies that could be combined with unilateral emissions pricing to counter effects on international competitiveness: a border charge on imports, a border rebate for exports, full border adjustment, and domestic output-based rebating. Each option faces different potential legal hurdles in international trade law; each also has different economic impacts. While all can support competitiveness, none is necessarily effective at reducing global emissions. Nor is it possible to rank order the options; effectiveness depends on the relative emissions rates, elasticities of substitution, and consumption volumes. We illustrate these results with simulations for the energy-intensive sectors of three different economies, the United States, Canada and Europe. Although most controversial, full border adjustment is usually most effective, but output-based rebating for key manufacturing sectors can achieve many of the gains. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
