Mobile growth continues unabated, with mobile data demand rising exponentially in all regions. As mobile users demand more, however, terrestrial resources are ever straining to keep up. On the surface, satellite’s ability to provide coverage, HTS cost reductions and broadcast/multicast support would seem like a perfect gap filler for mobile network operators. However, the satellite.
The steamroller of HTS capacity, combined with falling transponder prices, requires a thoughtful assessment of the critical technologies expected to play a key role in closing the business case for satellite operators. Today, the satellite industry seeks to further its growth by accessing markets such as M2M/IoT, consumer broadband and mobility, and the ground equipment via.
With global Oil & Gas markets still showing signs of instability, can the satellite communications industry continue to cite Energy markets as a ‘key vertical?’ Even in this ‘downturn’ there are opportunities, right? Regardless of oil pricing trends, there are clear needs for communications, and data-driven innovation across the Energy market value-chain – from ‘big.
With more airlines offering Wi-Fi on-board their planes each year, the past mishaps of in-flight connectivity (IFC) via satellite seem like a bad dream. Today, it represents a key growth market for the industry, and the future holds much more demand than ever for satellite capacity given the swift changes in take-up rates driven by.
From Megabits of FSS to Gigabits of HTS, the satellite industry is at the cusp of Terabits of LEO-HTS supply. However, from ground equipment, to spectrum, to go-to-market strategies being potential “Red Flags”, how does an industry brace itself for the possible resurrection of LEO constellations – this time with a broadband data focus? In.
