Join iDirect At The HTS 2016 Roundtable—Growth Opportunities For SATCOM-Based Broadband Solutions

Join iDirect on May 24 in Washington, DC, at the HTS 2016 Roundtable.

To be explored, in-depth, will be a range of issues that pertain to the massive growth opportunities for the market for satellite-based broadband solutions, no matter if present in planes, cars, trains, boats, villages, cities and living rooms.

This event will focus on those issues and opportunities that arise from a host of new applications that are being delivered into new market sectors. This includes the Communications On The Move (COTM) ecosystem, which is being enabled through the deployment of more-highly bandwidth efficient networks that use the advanced on orbit technologies of existing and planned high throughput satellite (HTS) systems. Additionally, the planned future constellations of hundreds of global communications satellites operating in LEO as announced by Google, Qualcomm, Virgin Galactic, etc., will be examined. This event will examine the latest big trends that beg some very big questions.

The HTS 2016 Roundtable will be held at the Jones Day Building in Washington, DC
