GLOBECOMM will introduce attendees of Satellite 2018 to the future of satellite services at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. — satellite is increasingly being integrated into the world's fastest growing technology sectors, including Internet of Things (IoT), a key trend that is being addressed by GLOBECOMM.
At booth 519, GLOBECOMM will discuss the firm's membership in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network, which enables GLOBECOMM to seamlessly inter-operate its global satellite and fiber network with AWS's storage, compute and cloud content delivery services. This partnership complements the company's position as the satellite services partner of AT&T's IoT applications and its new cloud-based platform, Multi-Connect, which supports GLOBECOMM's satellite IoT platform and enables businesses to manage devices across multiple cellular and satellite networks, operators and regions.
GLOBECOMM is known for providing mission-critical connectivity and secure communications over land, sea and air — under any condition. Attendees at the show will learn how GLOBECOMM is addressing the ever-increasing need for faster networks, more reliability and security, and better responsiveness with state-of-the-art capabilities from its multi-network managed services, increased Ka-Band/HTS services and its global experience with cellular backhaul. The company's IoT platform and solutions, offering new data management tools for connected assets and devices, will also be highlighted.
Other solutions at the show include ReliefSAT for Aid Organizations, a cost-effective Ku-band service solution for restoring community communications within 24 hours, and Slap'n Tracksm, a satellite-based asset tracking solution that uses GLOBECOMM's IoT platform.
Backhaul will be the topic on March 14 at 1:45 p.m., when GLOBECOMM Chief Commercial Officer Bryan McGuirk speaks on "Surging Opportunities for Global Satellite 4G Connectivity and Backhaul." Only 75 of the world's nations have deployed 4G, and in 28 of them, deployment has reached less than 60 percent of the population. No matter what happens with 5G, the deployment of 4G will continue, with satellite backhaul playing a crucial role.
Also at 1:45 p.m. on March 14, GLOBECOMM Senior Vice President Paul Scardino will moderate a panel discussion on "New Antennas, New Opportunities." If the new generation of phased array and beam-forming antennas proves successful, it will drive major change in ground segment technology, and teleport operators need to prepare for it.
On March 13 at 1:45 p.m., GLOBECOMM Senior Vice President Michelle Scotto de Cesare will speak on "Global Advances in Industry Standards and Quality Assurance," outlining the industry's role in 5G standards, certification of teleports and personnel.
GLOBECOMM CEO Jason Juranek noted that GLOBECOMM's roots in satellite go back to its founding. By bringing that expertise to the newest technology sectors, the company adds tremendous value. With the firm's integrated satellite, fiber, and cellular network and extended capabilities in solution design, system integration and network operations, GLOBECOMM can support a customer's every requirement.
