Join iDirect October 15 in Niagara Falls, Canada for the Satellite for 5G Colloquium - held prior to 24th KA and Broadband Communications Conference
10/15/2018. 

Key industry players will debate the role of satellites in 5G and present upcoming system architectures.

With billions of devices connected to the Internet by 2020 all requiring constant connectivity, the wireless industry has a big job to do. 5G is a revolution in telecommunications; challenging space technologies, defining new sets of services, and fashioning network of networks. Satellite will complement 5G terrestrial systems and offer important societal and economic benefits.

At the same time, the space communication ecosystem is becoming the center of attention of new investors. Many Satcom constellation projects, both GEO and non-GEO, from both incumbent operators and new players are being proposed and implemented to respond to the global demand for data. The colloquium will look across a broad range of satellite systems and their role in delivering integrated 5G services and address how satellite and terrestrial 5G systems will interoperate.

Presentation: Join iDirect’s Vice President of Emerging Products, Greg Quiggle, on Monday, October 15 at 15:00 during the industry panel Session 4, interactive panel among 5G cellular and satellite Industry players, including network vendors and satellite manufacturers.
