The satellite industry is diversifying itself by implementing services that go beyond broadcasting and capacity management, and is increasingly monetising B2B2C services and data capabilities through advanced ground networks, highly flexible and software-defined satellite businesses, and increased collaboration with service providers.

With the arrival of 5G, the opportunity for satellite connectivity in remote areas as a way to strengthen terrestrial network capabilities, as and when required, is greater than ever.

The in-person Satellite Connectivity Summit 2021, brings together satellite operators, services providers and ground station operators with the telecommunications and broadcast media industries, to flip the script for the satellite services industry. The Satellite Connectivity Summit 2021 is dedicated to the successful development, integration and monetisation of the next-gen downstream satellite connectivity ecosystem, including 5G integration, data services and state-of-the-art high throughput satellite infrastructures.

Meanwhile, capabilities and applications for onboard and offboard connectivity solutions on vessels and aircraft in remote areas is soaring. The requirement for connectivity anytime, anywhere to improve passenger and crew experience and welfare, as well as the need to make both the maritime and aviation industries more efficient and sustainable, is rapidly fuelling this demand.

The Onboard Connectivity Summit 2021 brings together the maritime and aviation industries with over-the-top (OTT) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) service providers, network connectivity and technology providers, and satellite operators, to accelerate onboard and offboard connectivity capabilities on vessels and aircraft. The Summit takes a holistic view at the network technologies and system integration required to enable future Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, passenger experience and crew welfare services to future proof fleet operations.

Onboard Connectivity Summit 2021 and Satellite Connectivity Summit 2021 will be co-located with Space Tech Expo Europe 2021, Europe’s leading space technology exhibition, at the Messe Bremen, Bremen, Germany, 16-18 November 2021.
