TECH BRIEF: Ensuring Satellite Service Efficiency

This talk will discuss how top-level innovations in the satellite industry – in the space segment (LEO/MEO constellations, software-defined satellites, HTS), ground segment (flat-panel antennas, modem technologies, VSAT managed service technologies), market expansion (marine and aero mobility, cruise ships, IoT, M2M, and Connected Car), and situational awareness (weather modeling, interference geo-cataloguing, terminal analytics), are driving the need for innovation in service planning, resource allocation, and delivery.

With market forces acting to reduce the cost per bit, operators and service providers are under immense pressure to increase system efficiencies and utilization, increase service offerings, and try to operate their systems at “full capacity.” On the other hand, providing an acceptable user experience for satellite-based services continues to be a challenge.
