Satellite IoT has for years been a niche market compared to the overall M2M and IoT market and something that hasn’t been too seriously considered by mobile network operators (MNOs) to date. Although there has been desire for “dual-mode” services that can connect to terrestrial networks and satellite networks, this has traditionally added great complexity,.
Alan Crisp, NSR senior analyst specializing in M2M and IoT via satellite, noted that today, satellite operators and service providers are torn between proprietary solutions and broader standards. This is evidenced in the satellite IoT ecosystem. “At the moment there still is an issue of how efficient these NTN standards are for satellite, especially when.
Satellite operators are at a crossroads due to a rapid revolution in satellite capacity provisioning worldwide. The satellite capacity industry was originally dominated by recurring, high-margin video applications, but its focus has now shifted to high-growth, data-centric services. A range of fixed and mobile data applications now dominate the growth story via numerous capacity types, orbits and ultimately, business.
Consumer IoT has traditionally been one of the strongest growth opportunities for MSS IoT markets, with Iridium in particular seeing record growth through consumer products such as the Garmin InReach, which currently dominates this market. Globalstar likewise has a strong showing with its SPOT range of devices. However, a growing number of announcements in the.
So back to our original question, why are stakeholders in the GEO camp in Asia welcoming the upcoming mess and chaos?
