Report | Satellite Strategies for Telcos

NSR’s 5G via satellite, 4th edition report is the first and only analysis covering the impact of 5G in its wider scope for the satellite industry. The report offers a strategic assessment and a quantitative forecast of the opportunities unlocked by 5G in the satcom ecosystem.

The study leverages NSR’s extensive and in-depth satellite industry knowledge together with Analysys Mason’s understanding of the terrestrial Telco markets and trends to assess the key implications and impact of 5G for the satellite industry and the aspects to consider in satellite-telco integration.

The report offers actionable recommendations for each step of the satellite value chain to take advantage of satellite-telco integration and succeed in the adoption of 5G. Specific opportunities for 5G Satellite are presented for the following verticals:

  • cellular backhaul
  • trunking
  • corporate networks
  • aeronautical connectivity
  • maritime
  • land mobile
  • government and military

The core of NSR’s detailed market review is rooted in the bottom-up assessment and forecast of 5G demand for each specific segment in each of the five different regions analysed in this study, namely:

  • North America
  • Latin America
  • Europe
  • Middle East/Africa
  • Asia

The forecast period for all market segments covers ten years running from 2022 to 2032. Forecasts are also structured by frequency as relevant per each vertical:

  • MSS
  • FSS – X, C, Ku, Ka
  • GEO-HTS – C, Ku, Ka
  • Non GEO-HTS

split by:

  • active sites
  • capacity demand
  • capacity revenue
  • service revenue
  • equipment shipments
  • CPE revenue
