Tuesday Opening General Session - The Satellite Connection: How Operators are Capturing a Larger Piece of the Data-Networking Pie

Tue. March 13| 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM | Ballroom BC

Open to all attendees. Satellite operators are evolving as they look to find their role in a more fragmented and complex communications eco-system than ever before. Can satellite carve out a profitable niche with new data networking applications such as Industrial IoT, connected transportation and data analytics or will it be relegated to the margins in a new eco-system? How will operators grow their businesses in the 5G era and provide the foundation for a prosperous future, not just for themselves, but for the industry at large? It is an exciting time and the industry will look to the big players to lead the way into this new era. The question is how exactly are they going to do it?
