One opportunity that 5G NR also opens up is the ability to connect from the ground to 5G-capable satellites. Lluc Palerm, Northern Sky Research analyst, told eeTimes that “that’s going to be very big, in the sense that it’s going to open a huge additional market for the satellite industry.” This will open up interesting applications in the.

In fact, according to NSR’s Wireless Backhaul via Satellite, 16th Edition report, the service revenues derived from Satellite Backhaul will approach $30 Billion per year by 2031, an opportunity that.
As Satellite & Space Analysts there are few truths in our market: Schedules almost always slip to the right; and the volume of data always increases.

Targeting the reduction of infrastructure costs, eliminating vendor lock-in effects and accelerating virtualization (do these objectives sound familiar to the Satellite industry?), Mobile Operators have embarked on the standardization of Open RAN. In fact, this is one of the hottest topics in the Telco industry with major endorsements like the commitment by the 4 largest.
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.
