Bridging the Gap: GSO and NGSO Synergy for Remote Connectivity

Bridging the digital divide has been a target by governments and commercial players since the 1990s. Yet, 40 years later, the ITU indicates that 2.6 billion people or one third of the world’s population are still not connected to the Internet. There are technology gaps such as bandwidth provisioning, coverage and ecosystem development. There are likewise market gaps such as price, total cost of ownership (TCO), disposable income levels and market access. LEOs, specifically Starlink has entered the market and in 3 short years has achieved 2 million customers. This webinar will discuss the following questions:

  • Is Starlink the model by which to succeed in bridging technology and market gaps?
  • Are there synergies that need to be leveraged on GEO and NGEO to bridge these gaps?
  • What does GEO bring to the table in the future of bridging the digital divide?

WRC-23: Look Up! Watch Out!
What Satellite Spectrum is up for Grabs at the World Radio Conference?

The World Radio Conference – a global negotiation on spectrum rights happening every four years – is occurring at the end of this year (WRC-23). Satellite dominates the agenda, whether defending its spectrum from International Mobile Telecommunications, managing an increasingly active NGSO environment, or trying to respond to mobility demands. Now that the Conference Preparatory Meeting has finished negotiation of the Report for telecom ministers and regional WRC preparatory bodies to inform their decision making at WRC-23, join the Vice-Chair of the host ITU’s Radio Regulations Board and the Chair of the U.S. WRC Advisory Council as they explain what WRC-23 agenda items affect the satellite industry and likely outcomes.
