Session Description

Join us at the Satellite Summit to explore the transformative impact of satellite networks, driven by the inclusion of satellite connectivity in Apple's iPhone 14.

With expanding coverage from LEO operators like Starlink and OneWeb and the formalization of non-terrestrial networks in 3GPP standards, telco-satellite partnerships are gaining momentum, promising increased coverage and revenues.

This summit will delve into the top strategic priorities and the emerging potential of satellite networks in revolutionizing global connectivity. We'll explore their ability to drive substantial revenue impact across consumer and B2B/IoT segments while reshaping the competitive dynamics within the satellite industry.


Topics to be Explored:

Strategic priorities for satellite integration in mobile networks (4G and 5G).

Technological advances at the chipset and device level.

Viable business models in telco-satellite partnerships.

Impact of satellite connectivity on internet access, customer adoption, and revenue growth.
