Satellite & HAPS: Transformational Technology Disruption, Service Resilience
Various direct satellite-to-device services have now emerged based on technologies that have attracted a lot of attention. Early direct satellite-to-device services typically only offered SOS-type alerts and text messaging, but these early-stage services have transitioned, developing into more widely attractive offerings of internet access and video. This panel will examine what the different technologies have in common and ask if we are witnessing moves towards some form of standardisation, or a countervailing movement that is off-trend and favouring proprietary solutions.
• Is advancing standardisation in satcoms now just a question of time and an inevitability?
• How does the direct satellite-to-device environment build upon 3GPP Release 17?
• To what extent does the direct satellite-to-device environment mean that satcoms is now centre-stage in telecoms?
