Posted on March 20, 2013
HERNDON, Va. – March 20, 2013 – SkyBitz®, the leader in remote asset tracking and information management solutions, today announced Henry Popplewell, Senior Vice President and General Manager, will speak at the Satellite 2013 Conference in Washington, DC. Mr. Popplewell will be on a panel session called “The Role of Satellite Solutions in the Fast Growing M2M Data Market.
- WHO: Henry Popplewell, Senior Vice President and General Manager, SkyBitz, Inc.
- WHAT: Satellite 2013
- WHERE: Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C., Room 140
- WHEN: March 20, 2013, 1:45 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Session Description: With widespread interest amongst terrestrial wireless operators in the growth opportunity that M2M data services create in an increasingly saturated mobile market, a boom in new M2M applications is underway. Satellite providers have also been benefitting from this growth, with M2M data services playing an ever more important role in filling MSS operators’ satellite capacity and boosting their bottom line. Some consumer mass market tracking solutions, such as Globalstar’s SPOT and DeLorme’s InReach, have achieved considerable success, but they still remain small niches from the perspective of terrestrial wireless networks with millions of users. Questions remain as to whether MSS demand will continue to grow in line with terrestrial demand, or if terrestrial will swamp the MSS opportunity as it did for much of the handheld voice business over the last decade. Views also differ on the role that dual mode devices will play in the market: can they enhance the role of satellite as a backup, or are they an unnecessary source of additional complexity? This panel will hear from leading M2M providers about where they believe the opportunities lie, and discuss which solutions are best placed across the satellite M2M market
Satellite 2013 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.
