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.
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…
