Report | Satellite Mobility

This report assesses the ‘big question’ faced by the satellite communications industry today- what is the impact of current or emerging Non-GEO HTS satellite constellations? The report provides recommendations for service providers, and satellite operators to understand key messages resonating most with end-users to help improve their market positioning. The report offers a detailed analysis of both LEO and MEO orbits using Ku and Ka-bands. These systems by their global nature have the potential of bringing significant capacity to oceans and other traditionally under-connected regions – disrupting a traditionally GEO-centric market that is still undergoing a transition from wide-beam FSS architectures to spot-beam GEO-HTS infrastructure. Overall, the report provides business-critical insights and analytics for the how, where, and why of these LEO and MEO options and their influence on the 10-year outlook for Ku- and Ka-band Broadband Mobility Markets.

This report does not answer the question of “LEO viability”, nor does it provide specific market shares or projections around each of these leading Non-GEO HTS constellations. While these are other key considerations around the Non-GEO HTS market, those questions are answered elsewhere in our library of research.
