We’ll take the journey from the New Ground vision, through R&D all the way to first proof of concepts, highlighting multiple industry perspectives as we go.

We will cover:
Space to Ground integration:
*The future of dynamic allocation of satellite resources across multi-orbits.
*The future of automated resource and service orchestration

Cloud and Digitization:
*The future of scaling network infrastructure through cloud based architectures

Creation of hybrid service offerings in a 5G era:
*The future of satcom as a complementary technology to terrestrial 5G, offering ubiquity, continuity/reliability and service scalability.
