5G-Satellite Integration Focus for London Thought-Leadership Panels

GVF-EMP Programme Embedded in World’s Major 5G Event

LONDON – The GVF-EMP Partnership has announced final details of the programme for Cellular Backhaul 2019: Satellite and the 5G Journey, an embedded feature of 5G World Summit, the biggest 5G-dedicated event in the world, and taking place on 13 June at London’s Docklands ExCeL Center.

The Cellular Backhaul 2019 programme will be dedicated to exploring the current interaction between the satellite and wireless industries, the current and future growth of data traffic from wireless mobile devices, and how that will impact both cellular and satellite networks as they increasingly converge and integrate.

With a series of roundtable-style formats across four themed panel-based sessions, Cellular Backhaul 2019 – which is supported by principal sponsor XipLink and also by Comtech EF Data, Hughes, Newtec, iDirect, SES Networks and Gilat Satellite Networks – offers ‘5G World’ attendees a series of thought-leadership explorations of the problems, risks, and opportunities that exponential data traffic growth offers to both satellite and wireless industries and to the business applications that will rely on future integrated communications networks.

A very full programme will feature panellists from ALCAN Systems; Astranis Space Technologies; CGI; Comtech EF Data; Eutelsat; Gilat Satellite Networks; Hughes; Inster; Integrasys; Intelsat; Isotropic Systems; Kratos; Newtec; SES; SES Networks; Spacebridge; TeleSat; VT iDirect; and, XipLink. Preceding the panel sessions, attendees will hear from Lluc Palerm-Serra, Senior Analyst, NSR, who will provide a brief Backdrop & Context overview of the 5G-satellite ecosystem market.

Full details of the four sessions and panellist population can be found Cellular Backhaul 2019 Programme.

Attendees at Cellular Backhaul 2019 will be able to leverage a just recently established and innovative post-event facility on the GVF website. The facility provides a Post-Event Summary page where event delegates – and those not able to attend in person – can read an encapsulation of event proceedings, outcomes, and conclusions, and it complements the Partnership’s long-standing practice of making available PDF versions of panellists’ introductory remarks-supporting slide decks on a free-of-charge basis. Additionally, GVF’s member organizations can sign-in to the GVF website and use this functionality as a platform to ask questions, engage with event attendees and continue the dialogue, post-event.

GVF is the only global non-profit association of the satellite industry.  Founded in 1997 and headquartered in London, it brings together organizations from around the world representing the satellite ecosystem that are engaged in the development and delivery of satellite technologies and services for consumers, commercial and government organizations worldwide.  GVF’s aim is to facilitate expanded access to satellite-based connectivity solutions globally, which is achieved through regulatory, policy and spectrum advocacy; training and certification; product quality assurance; and collaboration with user groups and other satellite stakeholders.

EMP (Century 21 Communications) was launched in 2004 to develop and manage a niche portfolio of highly specialized conferences analysing the mission-critical communications needs of major corporate and government end-users, particularly in remote locations where connectivity is a major challenge. EMP events are focused on rapidly developing as well as developed regional markets. EMP works very closely with key industry and government bodies as well as commercial entities with shared interests, to ensure that all events are stakeholder driven, and that critical industry objectives are analysed in depth and from a variety of perspectives.
