The advent of new High Throughput Satellites (HTS) will add to the swell of LEO and MEO bandwidth supply. As capacity will likely reach unprecedented levels, can the industry expect a surplus? And would this render bandwidth management less vital? Market players break down the demands and trends, revealing that bandwidth management solutions will see […]

The stars fell and competition rose. Leading satellite companies who enjoyed plump margins and steady revenue streams from broadcast and government verticals came crashing back to Earth with their share prices burning up in the atmosphere on the way down. Lower-cost, high-capacity systems had managed to topple the satellite giants and break their market stronghold. […]
Satellite operators looking to capitalize on data markets are evolving in parallel with customer needs. As new business models emerge, some satellite operators are going down the value chain and ditching the wholesale approach…
The mighty rise of smallsats will inevitably drive competition in the Earth Observation market. This will lead to delivery of new data services which, in turn, will lead to increasing demand from new customers. Within this proliferation of remote sensing satellites, not all companies will emerge as victors, but what is certain is that Earth […]
Earth Observation (EO) is in its infancy, meaning that there is significant room for growth. At the same time, with the smallsat revolution in full swing, key players in the EO market are expecting to see a new level of data service offerings that will fuel demands for satellite imagery. Increased demand is driven by […]
Launch rates in Asia are set to eclipse U.S. figures by 2025, showing that the region is on the path to reap significant returns. The benefits of Asia’s proliferation of smallsats include disaster management, agriculture, fast and affordable data, job creation and an expected new wave of business opportunities.
From the early 1980s until just a few years ago, Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) field effect transistors (FETs) were the mainstay of the Solid State High Power Amplifiers (HPA) industry for Radio Frequency (RF) transmission.
Asia is in no shortage of superlatives. It’s the most populous region in the world and it’s the largest continent on the planet. The oldest civilizations, highest peaks, most crowded cities and tallest buildings are all found in Asia. And now, the region has a new record to add to its list: the most satellites […]
Satellite could play a larger role in telecommunication infrastructure than ever before, but ensuring standards compatibility and getting pricing right is paramount. Now, the need for satellite and wireless to work together has never been greater.
[Via Satellite 11-30-2016] The Oil & Gas (O&G) market traditionally has always been a key vertical for satellite companies. However, falling oil prices in recent years have led to a reduction in investments for new communications infrastructure. One of the ongoing questions is what role satellite will play in O&G going forward. DigiRig works with […]
