Satellite Industry Trends: A Year to Remember, A Year Ahead – 1 December, 3pm GMT / 10am EST – Virtual Event
Jo De Loor, ST Engineering iDirect VP of Market Development & Strategy, will join GVF and Satellite Evolution Group as they review some of the more significant industry developments in 2021 and predict major developments yet to occur. Panelists from GVF members Kymeta, OneWeb, Speedcast, and moderator Stéphane Chenard of Euroconsult, will provide penetrating analysis and focused insights with perspectives from orbit and the ground.
Stakeholder dialogues on the current state of the satellite communications industry and its user markets feature a swath of interconnected trends, with transformational change in the industry catapulting it to a central position in our everyday lives. Of these trends, three stand-out in particular: technology; manufacturing; and broadband impact.
The technology in orbit and on the ground is advancing by leaps and bounds; that technology is being developed and manufactured at greater scale and at lower cost; and the impact that this is having is bringing broadband access to expanding end-user markets across greater geographies than ever before.
This last year has exacerbated our reliance on connectivity and just as we move towards a 5G world it is acknowledged that the “network of networks” is the significant opportunity that the world has to completely leverage the advantages of satellite communications.
