Satellite-to-Smartphone: LEO Constellation Facets

Unlike technically proven (FSS-band) LEO-HTS satcom constellations requiring communication terminals, these new initiatives aim to deliver on the promise of direct satellite-to-regular-handset communications through cellular and MSS spectrum in areas unreachable by existing cell towers. Yet, architectural facets drive a wide set of capabilities ranging from asynchronous emergency texting to continuous voice and broadband data connectivity.

Is Non-GEO a Real Threat to Incumbents?

In a word, Yes! However, market dynamics and the interplay of both are not as simple as they seem. For a while now, Non-GEO players have been the locus of mixed viewpoints in the Satellite Communication ecosystem due to market forces resulting into success, failure, delays and challenging scenarios. Despite all odds, the momentum for.

Space News: Major operator consolidation is a long time coming

“The recent spate of sizable satellite operator mergers “reflects that a shift from video to data use-cases is well underway,” says Brad Grady, a space industry analyst at Northern Sky Research. It shows that the industry previously “wasn’t well positioned to capture those opportunities efficiently,” he says. “Consolidation leads to enhanced market power and a.

Space News: Riding the consolidation wave

Fewer independent satellite operators would make it harder for new operators to enter the market, according to analysts at Northern Sky Research. Future entrants would also likely struggle to offer the same capabilities as those that have joined forces. However, even though fewer operators means less competition to drive down prices, NSR analysts do not.

Advanced Television: Forecast: Satellite HTS to reach $16.8bn by 2031

The launch coincided with a report from Northern Sky Research (NSR) forecasting that the overall geostationary and non-geostationary HTS satellite market could be worth $16.8 billion by 2031. These portions of the satellite business will maintain its leadership position through the decade, with Broadband Access, Mobility and Backhaul & Trunking segments driving majority growth.
