APSCC will hold a panel session at PTC’15 in Hawaii. Details of the session:

Enabling the Connected Device: What Role for Satellite in the Asia/Pacific?
Monday, 19 January 2015, 1530 – 1645
Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, Honolulu, Hawaii USA

Mobile connected device usage continues to explode worldwide, placing a strain on terrestrial resources and bandwidth. With Cisco estimating mobile video is now more than half of all mobile network traffic, spectrum constrained mobile operators face a dilemma: either adapt to the new paradigm or endure an eroding subscriber base.

This challenge means opportunity for satellite companies, as they enable ever higher bandwidth to mobile and fixed users in all regions, including the Asia/Pacific. Satellite solutions are a cornerstone of wireless backhaul in emerging markets and mobility worldwide, but the looming 3G/4G push will test satellite providers like never before.

This interactive session will explore a number of key questions, including:

  • What growth potential therefore exists for satellite players across mobility and backhaul segments in Asia/Pacific?
  • Is growth limited to legacy mobile networks, or is there real potential for 3G/4G support in the Asia/Pacific?
  • Do unique challenges exist in this market, and how are satellite companies effectively enabling solutions?
  • Will HTS capacity and new constellations play a larger role?
  • Is satellite ground technology keeping pace with mobile operator requirements?
  • Is the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for satellite solutions a barrier now, and in the future, for 3G/4G network backhaul?
