High Throughput Satellites: Leveraging Advancing Technologies for Innovative Services

At the GVF Satellite Hub Summit @ CABSAT, Bart Van Poucke, Product Manager at Newtec will join the panel discussion about High Throughput Satellites: Leveraging Advancing Technologies for Innovative Services — Mature, Evolving & Emergent Markets. 

This session will examine the landscape of latest developments in the use of the latest high throughput satellite technologies to enhance connectivity and enhance the availability of key applications to support mission-critical programmes in various end-user markets, for example, mobile backhaul, energy, and government.

Next Generation Satellite Backhaul

What is the future of mobile backhaul? Mobile network operators (MNOs) want innovative backhaul architectures that are robust and flexible to accommodate shifting traffic loads on cell sites without massive bandwidth over-provisioning. Importantly, MNOs are looking at the segmenting of macro-cells into smaller (femto-, pico-) cells, a trend presenting new challenges for the satellite backhaul vendor.

Oil, Gas & Mining

In the energy and raw materials extraction industries connectivity to support mission-critical applications is a key industry requirement. Just as with oil & gas, mining for raw materials to support manufacture and advanced industrial processes is an inherently remote operation and the need for satellite and satellite-terrestrial hybrid communications solutions is a vital element to the growth and cost-effectiveness of the sector.

Government

Whether for intra-governmental communications, expansion of connected ‘Digital Citizen’ environments, provision of tele-health services, or for expanding access to education through distance learning, satellite communications is essential to society and community in many parts of the world.
