Topic: How Teleports Compete in a GEO-MEO-LEO, HTS and Fibered World

Conference Track: Ground Segment Forum

Teleports are traditionally associated with fixed satellite communications, but they have always been connecting points for different transmission paths. That positions them well for a market in which satellite will increasingly be used only where its unique economics make the most sense.

What does the optimal network look like for different customer applications? How do operations, staffing, processes and capital expenditure change in a GEO-MEO-LEO, HTS and increasingly fibered world? How does the teleport maintain its value proposition in competition with terrestrial carriers and data center operators?
