Even though the “Internet of Things” has become a key area of focus for cellular operators, it remains unclear whether the satellite M2M sector will benefit from this trend. Satellite has an important role to play in supporting safety-critical applications and providing connectivity in remote areas, but satellite operators have far fewer resources available than terrestrial providers. As a result, it may be challenging for satellite to gain a foothold in mass market applications like vehicle telematics. In addition, several satellite M2M providers have merged with terrestrial solution providers in order to gain scale, but this has sometimes led to satellite being de-emphasized in favor of more immediately promising terrestrial opportunities. This session will discuss how satellite M2M providers are responding to this changing landscape, the new applications that are most promising for satellite, and how integration of both satellite and terrestrial connectivity with new software solutions for end users is boosting the revenues of leading operators.
The MSUA-11 Conference, produced by the Mobile Satellite Users Association (MSUA), focuses on the mobile satellite marketplace - challenges, opportunities and what lies in the road ahead. From comms-on-the-move, maritime broadband and in-flight connectivity to the future of MSS and FSS, panels of experts will cover all of your mobile satellite needs.
