From crew-centric Internet to real-time drilling data and video-based remote monitoring – energy markets continue to provide solid growth for the satellite communications industry. More bandwidth at more locations to enable more services is becoming the norm with Oil & Gas generating the most in revenues, utilities the most in-service units, and mining a steady opportunity – what role will satellite communications play in this increasingly terrestrial connected market? Exploring the O&G, Mining, and Utility sectors, this session will assess the opportunity for satellite communications – from MSS to the latest HTS systems in the Energy Markets. The session will answer key questions facing industry players: What does the market for HTS-based services look like? Just how far can terrestrial solutions go in meeting end-user connectivity demands? What services are driving growth for energy markets?
