Satellite communications (satcoms) face steep competition from terrestrial communications solutions. As fixed networks, such as cable and wireless networks cover more of the globe, satcoms operators need to continually innovate and improve. A key challenge they face today is to understand the distinct role satcoms have to play as part of an integrated communications solution comprising fixed, wireless and satellite, particularly with the launch of 5G networks whilst continuing to leverage the unique capabilities that Satcom can bring to remote locations and user communities such as aviation, maritime, military and government users.
