NSR’s Newest offering Satellite Traffic Study – “How Much Data Over Satellite” (STS) is THE industry resource for assessment of the data traffic levels being generated across the sector through the decade. Providing essential insights on the volume of data ‘beamed back’ to earth the report answers: “How many PB?”
The Space Traffic Study from satellite and space sector research firm NSR finds that the amount of data to/from space will reach more than 500 exabytes of information from 2020 to 2030.
