This rescheduled webinar opened with a tribute to the late Simon Gray, whose sudden and tragic passing away on 24 February 2022 was marked by the decision to postpone the event from 24 February to today, 10 March. David Meltzer, GVF Secretary General, gave the tribute.
Moderator Brent Prokosh, Senior Consultant with Euroconsult, then opened the discussion with our three panellists from Hughes, SES, and Telesat covering questions both from Brent and from the live global audience from 56 countries.
A detailed dialogue examined market drivers, target market segments, combined multi-orbit GEO-NGSO offerings and key offering differentiators, competition/co-opetition factors, business modelling, ground segment-related strategies.
Questions of note sought to identify both company-specific and general drivers of involvement in the NGSO space by GSO operators, with particular reference to whether this was something under consideration prior to the arrival of players like OneWeb, Starlink, and Kuiper, or whether it was a reaction to their emergence.
Assessments were given regarding key factors, technologies and/or market requirements that have led to the emergence and acceleration of the NGSO constellation phenomenon, of the criticality of satellite adoption in the 5G ecosystem, and associated universal service funding programmes, to the success of NGSO systems, and to distinctions between different market verticals in terms of service requirements and service delivery.
Further discussion covered how different systems will work in the context of enabling combined multi-orbit GSO-NGSO offerings, and further, combinations of multi-system/multi-network offerings, the latter introducing the competition versus co-opetition between operators factor.
Panellists also offered their perspectives on their respective ground segment-related strategies, with particular reference to the hybridisation of GSO-NGSO services through new generation antennas/terminals.
If you missed the opportunity to listen to the dialogue live, you have not missed out. The video recording of today’s webinar, covering these, and other, issues, is available on this page and it joins the extensive archive of all previous webinars in the GVF series.
By bringing together companies like Astranis, which builds and operates small, low-cost telecommunications satellites with a bandwidth-as-a-service model to unlock previously unreachable markets; like Avealto, which connects unserved and underserved regions, with an infrastructure of lighter-than-air, solar-powered, and uncrewed High Altitude Platforms (HAPs); and like Omnispace, which is seamlessly uniting mobile and satellite to create…
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has illustrated just how critical, and yet vulnerable, is the global supply chain infrastructure of planes, trains, trucks and ships. It has further illustrated the imperatives of establishing, maintaining, and expanding communications connectivity with all the modes of transportation which move our raw materials and manufactured goods around the…
