Adventures in Paris: World Satellite Business Week Wrap-Up
World Satellite Business Week (WSBW) has wrapped up in Paris capping off what has been a very busy summer for the satellite industry. Via Satellite Managing Editor Rachel Jewett attended the week-long event, covering a number of executive panel sessions for the magazine’s e-newsletter. She joins us on the On Orbit podcast to outline the key takeaways from the Euroconsult conference and what she learned behind-the-scenes.
Rachel explains how the CEOs from the world’s largest satellite operators responded to some of the biggest news stories of the season, including Eutelsat’s combination with OneWeb, SpaceX’s Starlink partnership with T-Mobile, and Globalstar bringing emergency communication functions to Apple’s iPhone 14. She also shares insights from regional operators, imagery and sensing market leaders, space journalists, and a humorous story involving her newly adopted dog eating a souvenir she brought home.
If you want to learn more about how satellite operators are forming new partnerships with terrestrial and wireless carriers, come out to Mobile World Congress on Thursday, September 29th to attend SATELLITE’s SAT @ MWC conference program, featuring keynotes from SES, SpaceX, Intelsat, and Globalstar, as well as panel sessions on satellite-powered 5G, 3GPP compatibility, capacity pricing, and b2b and enterprise connectivity!
