Telecommunication (Telco) companies have traditionally focused on expanding terrestrial infrastructure such as fiber and cellular networks to address the growing demand for connectivity across regions. The trend is changing rapidly as Telco players are increasingly integrating Satellite Communication (Satcom) solutions in their networks to extend coverage and diversify services. The key driver for this shift.
While telcos have long worked with satellite providers, the scale of potential deals is changing. Lluc Palerm-Serra, analyst for NSR, an Analysys Mason company, reports the size of the deals is growing significantly. Just three to five years ago, a 100-site deployment was “massive” for backhaul. Today, some deals involve thousands of sites. “In Mexico.
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.
To be clear, I’m a Space enthusiast, and that makes writing some of the following lines a bit more difficult. The Satellite Communications industry must acknowledge that satellites are no longer the stars of the industry. In the era of cheap and easy access to Space, satellites can’t be the key differentiator. The attention should shift towards services, networking and eventually applications. How is this slide of value creation taking shape? Don’t get me.
