Mobile network operators (MNOs) that provide mobile services beyond those that are terrestrial-based have the opportunity to boost subscriber engagement, enable new IoT and enterprise services or secure critical links. MNOs’ capacity to generate economic and social value is currently limited by the reach of their network coverage.
The emergence of satellite direct-to-device services will make mobile services truly ubiquitous. Satellite direct-to-device services are still in their infancy, but their capabilities are evolving dramatically and rapidly. MNOs need to act quickly to implement their satellite direct-to-device service strategy to differentiate themselves from their competitors and to capture a piece of this opportunity that will be worth a cumulative USD93.1 billion in the next 10 years.
