Discussion of many of the pivotal transitionary trends comprising the continuing evolution of the space segment – HTS as the key enabler for long-term data-centric business growth; improved service provision for new market growth segments such as inflight and maritime connectivity; global expansion of general broadband access; movement from wholesale bandwidth supply to managed services provision; and, the pending competitive offerings of the emergent NGSO players – is often focused around the commercial strategies, technology, and services evolution of the major global FSS GEO operators.
An audience from 55 countries today tuned-in to today’s webinar, pointing to the fact that there is another important grouping of players in the orbital environment which should not be overlooked; indeed, the objective of this webinar was to bring together some of the key “voices” in this industry segment, “voices” which illustrate the agility, and the dynamism, of the segment, “voices” which will get louder as additional regional operators emerge onto the market.
Covering topics and themes relating to evolving GEO satellite technologies and business models, particular reference was made to the participating companies’ positions on:
shifting to smaller satellites, digital payloads and electric propulsion, and transitioning away from traditional satellites to HTS and its associated particular growth drivers
the biggest challenges in the competitive landscape from the growing number of regional/national satellite operators, and new entrants such as NGSO broadband constellation projects
trends towards managed (and/or value-added) services provision, and accelerating rural broadband deployments
spectrum and interference, and the inter-relationship of video and data traffic.
Panellists were asked how their respective organisations exemplify and illustrate engagement in these dynamics and in particular were asked about their thoughts on how their respective approaches offers market differentiation.
Watch this video to hear these views as well as the panellists’ answers to about a dozen questions sent in by the very interactive audience using the Zoom Q&A function.
The backdrop to this latest key themed exploration in the GVF-Satellite Evolution Webinar Series are two surveys related to the aero and inflight connectivity market. One survey, conducted in October 2020, offers us various important insights on the nature of airline passenger confidence1. The second survey is active now and YOU can contribute to it…
In this second panel discussion, Alvaro Sanchez, CEO, Integrasys; Jack Buechler, VP Business Development & Product Management, Talia; and Nicholas “Donnie” Laughton, Manager Systems Operations LEO, Telesat; with GVF moderator David Meltzer, explored themes concerning satellite’s resilience in the face of a range of market challenges and robustness in its connectivity capabilities. Whether it’s a…
In the first of two panel sessions, the focus was be on satellite’s disruptive evolutionary trends on the space segment and ground segment. Featuring David Meltzer as moderator, the panel will comprise Dave Rehbehn, VP International Division, Hughes Network Systems; Simon Gray, SVP Civil Government, Eutelsat; Imran Malik, VP Global Sales Fixed Data, SES; and,…
In the first of three parts to the GVF Virtual Summit GVF Secretary General, David Meltzer, was in conversation with a representative of the International Telecommunication Union Radiocommunication Bureau: Mehtap Dufour, Senior Radiocommunication Engineer with the Satellite Systems Coordination Division of the Space Services Department. Questions revolved around how WRC-19 satellite-related outcomes of particular interest…
GVF’s long-standing engagement in, and commitment to, the Humanitarian Assistance & Disaster Response (HADR) environment can be illustrated in several examples. These examples include:  Its contribution to the development of the United Nations Crisis Connectivity Charter;  Its representation on the United Nations Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC, administered by the World Food Programme for…
