Wireless Backhaul – The Future of Satcom in the Zettabyte Era

Mobile growth continues unabated, with mobile data demand rising exponentially in all regions.  As mobile users demand more, however, terrestrial resources are ever straining to keep up.  On the surface, satellite’s ability to provide coverage, HTS cost reductions and broadcast/multicast support would seem like a perfect gap filler for mobile network operators.  However, the satellite industry has been unable to support more than 0.4% of global mobile data traffic, being relegated to a negligible role.

What is it about satellite solutions that hinders growth in the explosive mobile market?  Is it cost, technology, perceptions, or something else?  One theme is clear: satellite players must identify what it takes to support the avalanche of mobile backhaul data traffic, especially for new 4G or 5G service, as well as CDNs and traffic offload.

Relying on NSR’s Wireless Backhaul via Satellite, 10th Edition, the longest-standing analysis of this important sector, this FREE NSR webinar discusses key topics on expanding satcom addressable markets in the mobile ecosystem:

  • Where does satellite wireless backhaul stand in the mobile ecosystem?
  • What is the addressable market for the satellite industry to target?
  • What is necessary to unlock the demand for backhauling broadband services?
  • What are the new markets and opportunities emerging with the emerging telecom architecture (video, data explosion, 5G, CDNs…)?
