Astranis is revolutionizing the Satcom value chain with a third service provider acquiring its own satellite capacity (PDI, Anuvu and most recently Andesat). This will certainly not be the last instance in which a Communications Service Provider acquires its own Space segment. In fact, in the time of cheap and easy access to Space, satellites become commoditized, and Satellite Operators need to rethink what value they bring.
A report from analysts at Northern Sky Research (NSR) forecasts that satellite-based 5G access could attract 400 millions of subscribers by 2030. The subscribing numbers will be made up of Smartphones and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. “Beyond traditional telco areas, multiple segments show accelerated growth from transition to 5G, generating $125.5 billion in cumulative.
Direct Satellite to Mobile Devices Attracting 400 Million Subscribers in Next Decade Cambridge, MA – October 19, 2021 – NSR’s 5G via Satellite, 2nd Edition report, launched today, sees 5G access protocols that incorporate Non-Terrestrial Networks will attract 100s of millions of Smartphones and IoT devices to satellite networks by the decade’s close. Beyond traditional Telco areas, multiple segments show accelerated growth from transition to 5G, generating $125.5 Billion in cumulative service revenues. While COVID-19 may increase demand, delaying 3GPP Release 17, key actors in the.
NSR’s article on Backhaul and 5G opportunities…..Within the connectivity business, backhaul is THE bet that many programs are hinging their success upon. Indeed, the latest NSR report on wireless backhaul forecasts $25 billion in annual revenue in 2030, propelled by explosive connectivity demand worldwide and post-COVID-19 recovery in the near term. The industry is just.
NSR discusses how Satellite is poised to join 5G Network Topology. [They] explained how companies like Iridium and Inmarsat are particularly interested in the prospect of NTN in Release 17 because they hold spectrum between 1.5GHz and 2.5GHz – in the so-called L-band and S-band – that could be added to existing 5G networks.
