Mobile Satellite Connectivity | October 3 at 8:00am

At few points in history have the tea leaves of mobile connectivity been more difficult to read. HTS & traditional satellite internet providers potentially face significant competition from new constellations offering wider coverage and comparable connectivity. What role could “mothership” type satellites play in terms of constellation management? Ground equipment is facing similar disruption with the seemingly near term introduction of flat panel antennas. What does the future of mobile connectivity hold? How will satellite be an integral component of the 5G and terrestrial wireless world of the future? What does the broadband connection of tomorrow look like?
