The satellite communications industry stands at the threshold of a major transformation, as new frequency bands open and new lower-orbiting satellite constellations are populated over the next few years. The impact will be felt across all market segments: aeronautical, maritime, land-mobile and enterprise/consumer – not to mention gateway and teleport infrastructure.

Even if only a small percentage of the proposed new NGSO satellite constellations are actually deployed, they have the potential to be a major disruptor, offering lower latency, additional capacity and universal pole-to-pole coverage. At the same time, GEOs are not going away and will continue to be an important part of the technology mix.  The implications for satellite antenna suppliers are enormous.  Clearly, the “Holy Grail” would be a true integrated solution that has the ability to switch rapidly and seamlessly between beams, satellites and constellations.

This timely educational webinar features Bill Milroy, Chairman and Chief Technology Officer of ThinKom Solutions, an industry-leading manufacturer of flat-panel mobile satellite antennas.  He is a recognized expert in the field of antenna design and manufacturing.

On a beautiful summer day in the Tennessee countryside, a foreboding Black Hawk helicopter lifted off from a regional airfield to surveil the local landscape. Equipped with a high-definition video camera, the Black Hawk was on a mission: to send real-time, HD video as it buzzed across the horizon. Viewers around the world witnessed the crisp, consistent video transmission – a picture-perfect example of Beyond Line of Sight Communications.

The Black Hawk was outfitted with the Hughes HeloSat™ solution—including a Hughes HM series modem with proprietary through-the-rotor waveform, fuselage-mounted antenna and network management.

For military reconnaissance, government missions and commercial applications from extreme sports to weather monitoring, a rotary wing aircraft is often the most nimble means of accessing hard to reach and compromised sites. But communication from aboard these moving platforms has been all but impossible, making these ideal vehicles less than ideal in real life. Until now.

Join Wayne Marhefka of the Hughes team with John Wellington, chief flight instructor, XP Services Inc., and former 160th Special Operations Aviation Regimen flight lead, who piloted the Black Hawk for the recent demonstrations to learn about the HeloSat solution and experience a narrated replay of the video captured during the flights.

  • Technical challenges of Beyond Line of Sight communications
  • Specifications of the Hughes HeloSat solution – how it works
  • Military, government and commercial applications, including various rotary wing vehicles
  • Narrated replay of the Tennessee flights, as told by the pilot and manager on the ground

Virtualization: The Future of Wireless Communications

Price: FREE
View Webinar | Speakers and Information

Transport Virtualization is a necessary, revolutionary next step in wireless communications that will enable users to achieve significant gains in network user interoperability, application and capacity efficiency and general connectivity resiliency. Benefiting from technology advances specifically developed for the cloud computing market, the marriage between CPUs and FPGAs creating High-Performance Computing (HPC) platforms also enables the creation of a framework for real-time continuous processing capabilities to be hosted as applications on common hardware.

Similar to cloud computing being a new paradigm in data processing and storage, and Transport Virtualization is a new paradigm in communications enabling the delivery of data, video and voice over a heterogeneous virtualized transport medium. Analogous to the smartphone industry, instead of separately investing in a calculator, a telephone, a map, a flashlight, a camera, a gaming console, and other purpose-built capabilities, users can instead invest in an infrastructure that delivers all of these capabilities and more.

Transport Virtualization is an open ecosystem that recognizes that no one technologist can invent, develop or create every optimal or desirable capability very much the way smartphone ecosystem developers have recognized that they cannot create every optimal or desirable application for their consumer. Transport Virtualization about “less is more” in terms of physical hardware; and “more is more” in terms of communication applications.

Envistacom is bringing Transport virtualization to the forefront of both government and commercial networks. Enabling these new capabilities will allow users to focus on best employing their networks without the need to focus on choosing the right hardware devices for their networks. Transport Virtualization will ensure that innovation, flexibility and employment of the fastest, most secure and most economical networks may be realized and result in an open and fair ecosystem for the benefit of users and technologists alike.

Plus, listeners will learn:

  • Defining Transport Virtualization and why it is important.
  • A lack of network and user interoperability (where “standards” don’t apply), application and capacity efficiency, and general connectivity resiliency will hamper robust and truly resilient connectivity in the future.
  • Transport Virtualization addresses this problem in a manner that users will desire and technologists can/will accept because it delivers a tangible solution while respecting and protecting Intellectual Property.
  • A discussion of how Transport Virtualization will be developed and rolled out and fully utilized for everyone’s benefit.
  • Discuss how transport virtualization is the future of communications; discuss where it’s at in its maturity and how Envistacom is making this future a reality.

Price: FREE
View Webinar | Speakers and Information

As operators and governments around the world seek solutions to connect the unconnected, mobile connectivity emerges as the primary opportunity to bridge the digital divide. In fact, worldwide mobile traffic is up 222% in the last five years, representing more than 50% of the global internet traffic. Yet Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) face challenges when they start planning for deployments beyond urban and suburban areas.  The challenges include physical access (roads), utility availability (reliable power), security, and backhaul connectivity for the cell site.  That’s where satellite plays a critical part of the hybrid solution, making it possible to deploy small foot-print, low power cell sites with high-speed backhaul connectivity extending mobile network reach beyond the limits of terrestrial technology. There will always be places where terrestrial fiber/microwave backhaul is not available and where satellite provides the most cost-effective –  if not the only – backhaul connectivity path. Moreover, high availability of the global network demands that there be redundant connectivity paths employing alternate technologies.

This webinar will cover the economic and architectural considerations for deploying cellular backhaul solutions by satellite — not only to reach new markets but also to prepare mobile networks to fulfill the promise of 5G.

During this presentation you will learn:

  • What’s keeping MNO’s from extending the mobile network beyond the metro areas?
  • How can satellites help solve the connectivity challenge?
  • Can satellite be a cost-effective backhaul option?
  • How can MNOs prepare for 5G?
  • And some use cases from around the world
