How Satellite Operators and Telcos Must Work Together

With today’s new satellite mega-constellations springing up in low-earth orbit (LEO) and plans for huge rollouts over the coming years from the likes of SpaceX, OneWeb and Amazon, space may overhaul the global connectivity landscape. There are major growth opportunities for telecommunications companies (telcos) and satellite operators, as technologies such as 5G, edge computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) become mainstream. But telcos and satellite operators will need to work together to support this emerging “space race.” Satellite operators, in particular, should consider leveraging the extensive IP networks that telcos already have, and their other assets and relationships worldwide. Join us as our guests look at what the future holds for the telcos and satellite operators and what steps do these “frenemies” need to take together to make the most of the vast potential benefits on offer from this new frontier.
