LEO and GEO HTS: A Complex Interplay or Multi-Player Game?
HTS capacity is rapidly becoming ubiquitous among the satellite operator community as higher, focused bandwidth expands revenue potential. GEO and MEO-HTS have both proven to be successful, and the entrance of LEO-HTS players promises to transform an industry used to speaking of Mbps into one where Tbps are the norm. A key issue is now the precise balance between classic FSS and HTS, which is more complex than ever. This NSR session will focus on all HTR orbits, including opportunities and challenges across this new space. Amidst a potential avalanche of HTS capacity entering the market bringing much lower pricing, and with a glut of FSS capacity in some regions, this discussion is vital to all within the satellite industry.
