Topic: Broadband Satellite: Changing Times ... or Are They?
Broadband satellite services are experiencing a change in paradigm in 2013 with the launch of O3b and Inmarsat’s first Global Xpress satellite. Yet, many of the well established markets for enterprise-class VSAT services, government-backed digital inclusion, backhaul and Ku-band mobility continue to flourish in the Asia-Pacific. This session will discuss trends in both the established C- and Ku-band broadband satellite markets as well as the impacts, positive and negative, that new HTS and MEO-HTS based services are beginning to have on market development. The session will explore areas where the traditional markets continue to grow, the emergence of new services, and the interactions that should occur between the two.
