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.

Joining us for the reflections and expectations of ‘Satellite Industry Trends: A Year to Remember, A Year Ahead’ were experts from a diverse group of industry members from Kymeta, OneWeb, Speedcast, and ST Engineering iDirect. Our panellists’ analyses and insights began with their describing their top event of 2021, and respective expected/predicted major event for…
In this latest event in the programme of GVF webinars we continued our long-standing series examination of the satellite communications ground segment. Anyone who views the ground segment as the less interesting twin to the satellites was disabused by the the expressions of bullish enthusiasm of today’s panel the number of audience members, and the…
Following on from the ‘Connecting Africa: Overcoming Barriers Via Satellite Roundtable‘ of 16 September 2021, ‘Connectivity Demands: Satellite & the Middle East’ brought a new region into fine microscopic focus. Again moderated by David Meltzer of GVF, this Middle East-centric dialogue brought together SES Networks’, General Manager for Middle East & Central Asia; Saudi Net…
In discussing the UK space landscape this moderator-led discussion was advantaged in featuring contributing panellists who are all for different reasons at the cutting-edge of the country’s accelerating space industry advances. A UK Member of the United Kingdom Parliament and Vice Chair of the Parliamentary Space Committee; the Chief of Government, Regulatory & Engagement with…
A webinar which brings together a highly innovative leading satellite operator, a satellite service provider operating across Africa, and one of the same continent’s leading MNOs, you’re guaranteed a great discussion. In Connecting Africa: Overcoming Barriers via Satellite, a highly engaged audience added to the weight of Q&A discussion, moderated by David Meltzer of GVF,…
