Topic: Who Prevails in a Potential HTS Ecosystem War?
The HTS theme is more mainstream than ever and continues its rise as the industry growth story. While the discussion of HTS vs FSS may still be relevant, the debate now shifts to “HTS ecosystems” and the various business models used to enable HTS-based service. A variety of HTS business models now exist, with many focused on specific applications, distribution types and a variety of orbits. As vendors vertically align themselves behind one or more of these models, the market appears poised for the next paradigm of competition. This forward-looking session includes companies driving the different HTS models and ecosystems and will answer a number of key questions: With HTS near ubiquitous, will we have a war of HTS ecosystems in the future? Should we expect a reshuffling of players across the distribution chain in each region? From GEO to MEO and now LEO; how are orbits defining high-speed services and target markets?
