Breaking Down the Satellite Silo

Carriers Verizon and BT reveal technology innovations that take satellite communications into the heart of the end-to-end network

The promise of a connected world can only be fulfilled through the creation of a fully converged end-to-end communications network – one that integrates all access technologies into a common IP core to create a seamless user experience.

Integrating satellite into the core network has been a challenge as satellite operates under its own set of standards and protocols. Today, that’s changing as satellite moves toward the adoption of IP networking standards, open API technologies and virtualization.

Join Via Satellite and iDirect in this informative session, Breaking Down the Satellite Silo, to see how these advances enable satellite networks to be more easily integrated into the end-to-end network at the access and management layers. And with that, allow carriers to expand their services.

In this Webinar presentation, Verizon, BT and iDirect will discuss the following topics:

  • How satellite is being integrated into the converged end-to-end network
  • How this enables new revenue opportunities around the world
  • The future model for telco service over a global, virtual, end-to-end network
