5G: Touching Every Corner of Satcom

In this sense, 5G will be transformational in many aspects of the Satcom ecosystem: from stimulating demand in many segments, seamlessly integrating Satcom in the mainstream Telco ecosystem or becoming a tool for optimizing Satellite Network design and operations.

5G and the Future of Capacity Leasing

When considering 5G, one might inadvertently focus on user-oriented characteristics such as latency or throughput.  However, the reality is that one area where 5G will be more disruptive is on the backend of networks

What Drives Satellite Flexibility: Necessity or Opportunity?

Flexible satellites have been around for some time, but the rate and scale of flexibility has increased exponentially over the last few years. Declining GEO capacity prices, rise in competition and the need for reduced time to orbit and are just a few factors that led to greater need for software-defined satellites.

ViaSatellite: VHTS: Soaring to Unprecedented Heights

We’re seeing two primary strategies starting to unfold, in the article “VHTS: Soaring to Unprecedented Heights”. “Two approaches are applied to HTS procurements today. There are satellite operators following very high throughput path — like Viasat or Hughes — [that] want to minimize that cost per gigabit per second via large scale satellites…
