Topic: DVB-S2X: An Industry in Transition

Extending mobile communications via satellite is one of the bright spots of the satellite services business. Euroconsult estimates that the number of sites leveraging satellite backhaul surged between 2007 and 2012, tripling to reach 16,000 sites and consuming 15.5 GHz of satellite capacity. How can managed service providers best seize the opportunities created by demand for mobility and mobile services? They must know how to optimize their solutions to get the most out of satellite bandwidth, whether using fixed capacity to provide the international gateway for a country or region, or managing a network of satellite-connected base stations sharing a bandwidth pool. Reaching deeper into the niche, some service providers are even becoming providers of hosted switching and delivering a complete outsourced solution for customers. In this panel, managed service providers will discuss the service niches, geographic hot spots and the mix of technologies and skills required to enter this market and succeed. Moderated by: Robert Bell, Executive Director, WTA
