This Euroconsult-moderated panel discussion examining potential exponential growth in a new era of satellite communications which emphasises unrestricted mobility over transportation networks whilst the user navigates the digital world, brought together speakers from ST Engineering iDirect, Marlink, Intelsat, and Comtech EF Data.
Users expect no limitation on exactly where to get access to the Internet, and this session explores:
In aircraft, passengers want high-speed, uninterrupted Wi-Fi capable of supporting streaming movies, social media and messaging, and bandwidth hungry work applications. Airlines want a robust platform to launch innovative connected services, including lucrative ancillary revenue generators, and broadband connectivity to the cockpit. SOTM terminals, or Earth stations in motion (ESIMs), provide broadband connectivity solutions.
High-speed rail networks are an expanding potential market for internet connectivity, and rail travellers’ demand for always-on connectivity is particularly high where cellular connectivity solutions are absent. Through rural/remote areas without terrestrial networks coverage, or where there is coverage high-speed trains move between cellular base stations faster than networks can handle location transitions, the solution is satellite communications based on low-profile, high gain antennas and network utilisation optimisation to overcome satellite delay and enable signal reacquisition when exiting tunnels.
The modern automobile is a sensor-laden mobile IoT device, with considerable on-board computing power and communication systems. All of these systems use cellular technology, among others. With growth of 5G-connected IoT solutions in the automotive space, the automotive industry will be a major market opportunity for 5G IoT solutions, solutions that we know will have a degree of satellite network inter-dependency for which the satellite industry is quickly gearing up.
Ship owners and operators are increasingly embracing digitalisation, enhancing use of information and operational technology, and of satellite as the broadband connectivity enabling technology. Satellite’s role at the core of maritime safety has been established for over 40 years. Satellite is also at the core of crew welfare, more so now with pandemic disruption necessitating fast, reliable and secure connectivity between ships and shore. For the cruise industry, passengers expecting connectivity throughout their cruise have their expectations met by satellites.

GVF and Connectivity Business News presented ‘Innovation and the Ground Segment’, an hour of wide-ranging, free- and fast-flowing interaction between moderator and our panellists from across the satellite ground segment. As moderator, Tim Farrar set the scene with an insightful preamble, beginning with observations which in part noted, “Often the prevailing sentiment in the satellite…
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…
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…
With an expert line-up comprising Jennifer Manner of EchoStar, Alex Epshteyn of Amazon, Mohaned Juwad of INTELSAT, and Daniel Mah of SES, this webinar was bound to attract considerable interest in the subject matter of how decisions made on global satellite spectrum matters impact satellite businesses everywhere. An audience from 52 countries benefitted from a…
