[NSR] shares insights from [their] recent report on ‘Satellite Ground Network Virtualization,’ and the implications for a ground segment that needs to catch up with innovations in space. [NSR] explains how the ground needs to become more virtual, software defined, and cloud-centric to unlock the capabilities of newer HTS satellites, flexible payloads…
The wide Telecommunications industry is on the verge of a major transformation with the arrival of 5G. Satcom is no different and 5G represents an extraordinary window of opportunity for becoming a mainstream solution. How can Satcom maximize this opportunity? With COVID-19 we might have lost sight of a big inflexion point in 2020: the.
Northern Sky Research in late October estimated that 5G will generate $32.5 billion for the global satellite communications industry through 2029. By then, the research firm expects that more than 10 million devices will connect to satellite-based 5G networks.
Northern Sky Research (NSR), in its latest study, says that the adoption of 5G will be transformational for many aspects of the Satcom ecosystem: from stimulating demand in many segments, seamlessly integrating Satcoms in the mainstream Telco ecosystem or becoming a tool for optimising Satellite Network design and operations.
Previous ‘Gs’ of mobile communications were very narrow, primarily focusing on consumers and operating independently from the rest of communications technologies. But the vision of 5G is much wider unlocking uncountable enterprise-oriented use cases and offering a framework for integrating all other communications technologies.
