Creating a Universal Language for Satellite Antennas, Cell Towers, and Handheld Devices
Satellite technology developers have been working toward more universal compatibility with consumer devices, terrestrial networks, and between satellite antennas to create seamless global connectivity for customers. This session will focus on recent activity and critical steps the satellite industry has been taking to advance open technologies and standards and break free from IP silos.
11:30 am – 12:00 pm
KEYNOTE: What it Takes to Extend the 5G Network Edge with Satellite
Demand for 5G networks is everywhere, even in areas beyond the reach of terrestrial networks. However, bringing 5G to these areas represents complex challenges in network planning, engineering, and operations. In this presentation, SES tackles these challenges head-on, revealing practical discoveries in extending the mobile network edge via satellite for one of the world’s largest network operators. This session will also feature results from rigorous demonstrations and proof-of-concept testing, which have revealed essential performance thresholds required for enabling satellite-based 5G networks anywhere on the globe.
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Lunch Break (not provided)
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Satellite Bandwidth: Pricing Trends and Supply Forecasts
The mobile services industry’s reliance on satellite bandwidth is expected to continue to accelerate for everything from backhaul to mid-band spectrum 5G services. With thousands of new satellites and several constellation systems launching during the next few years, it is important to understand how operators value spectrum and prioritize its availability. Speakers on this panel will explain how commercial space companies balance spectrum supply and invest in areas of high demand.
2:00 pm – 2:30 pm
2:30 pm – 3:00 pm
KEYNOTE: Bridging the Cellular and Satellite Worlds: Case Studies from the Field
As operators formulate growth strategies to connect the over 1.6 billion people globally with no access to 4G and 5G, it becomes ever more important to identify alternative carrier-grade backhaul solutions to support their expansion needs. Learn how customers around the globe are integrating satellite backhaul into their network, how managed solutions are helping them address more use cases and how a focus on end-user experience is driving innovation that will expand the opportunity to extend cellular networks.
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Multi-Orbit Satellite Broadband for Rural/Remote Industry and Enterprise
Most people know that high-profile next-generation satellite constellation systems such as SpaceX Starlink, OneWeb, Viasat-3, Telesat Lightspeed, and Amazon Kuiper are targeting consumer connectivity on the other side of the digital divide. What most people don’t know is how operators are also planning to use these systems to deliver extensive enterprise broadband and IoT capabilities to industries that operate in these same areas. Learn how satellites are filling the world’s last remaining connectivity gaps for global enterprise customers.
