The Satellite Integral Factor: Cloud; 5G

01 Apr 2020

Satellite is becoming as integral to the Cloud as it is acknowledged as being integral to the successful roll-out of the next generation mobile standard – 5G.  Compared to the rest of the telecommunications sector, recognition of the opportunities in partnering with the Cloud is only just now working through and, as a result of leveraging reduction of upfront CAPEX, reduced OPEX, rapid scalability, ease of development and ubiquitous accessibility, is at the same time bringing evolutionary change to the entire, and expanding, satellite industry value chain.  This value chain can be characterised as encompassing data volumes and analytics products not only arising out of satellite communications network operations, but also generated by NewSpace Earth imaging and the IoT revolution.

  • Leveraging advanced satellite-Cloud service synergies
  • The satellite customer base and systems digitization
  • Ubiquity of data availability
  • Running data analytics offerings on virtual systems
  • From building underlying infrastructure to dealing big data and problem solving
  • Generations – the 5G world of devices quantum leap
  • M2M and 5G – IoT and Internet of Everything Everywhere (IoEE)
  • Integrated functionality – terrestrial broadband wireless and broadband satellite in the LEO constellations age
  • Accelerating satellite’s evolving technological and service capabilities and Mobile Network Operator (MNO) partnership
  • A Unified Network Infrastructure (wired, wireless, terrestrial, and satellite)
  • Satellite beyond 3GPP 5G “Use Cases” and the enhanced technological contributions of HTS/VHTS in GSO, MEO, and the new LEOs
  • The Cloud, 5G, and emerging low-cost terminal technologies
  • Terminal technology interoperability
  • Challenging MNO negative perceptions about satellite
