SkyBitz President to Speak at Satellite 2012
Posted on March 12, 2012
HERNDON, Va. – March 12, 2012 – SkyBitz®, the leader in remote asset tracking and information management solutions, today announced Homaira Akbari, President, will speak at the Satellite 2012 Conference in Washington, DC.
Dr. Akbari will be on a panel session called “New M2M Data Solutions Become Ever More Important for MSS Market Growth.”
WHO: Homaira Akbari, President, SkyBitz, Inc.
WHAT: Satellite 2012
WHERE: Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C., Room 140
WHEN: March 14, 2012, 3:15 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Session Description: As broadband data users move inexorably from L-band towards higher capacity Ku and Ka-band services, MSS operators are now expecting lower speed M2M data services to play an ever more important role in filling their MSS satellite capacity and boosting their revenue growth rates. This expectation is founded on the new, lower cost satellite data devices that have become available in recent years, as well as the innovative solutions that have enabled providers such as SPOT to open up completely new consumer opportunities for MSS. Many in the industry believe that a continuing stream of innovations will support both expansion of current key market segments (transportation, heavy equipment, asset tracking) and development of new opportunities and thus expect that robust satellite M2M revenue growth will continue over the next decade. However, it remains uncertain how the satellite M2M market will be impacted by the new dual mode satellite-terrestrial chipsets being developed by Qualcomm and Hughes or whether specialist satellite chipsets will continue to provide the optimum solution for end users.
Satellite 2012 is an event for the satellite communications industry, where attendees can immerse themselves in sessions and drill deep into topics of importance with panels, roundtables and user discussions led by thought-leaders, pioneers and innovators in the global satellite marketplace.
