NSR.... What's All This Fuss Over Hosted Payloads? (Event—Webinar)

[SatNews] The Case for Hosted Payloads is an upcoming NSR webinar that will offer...

...an in-depth discussion of the emerging market for Hosted Payloads (HPs) across all market segments and all regions. HPs represent a new element to satellite capacity planning worldwide, but this model also introduces a new level of technical and business complexity for HP host and client. Using NSR’s recently released Hosted Payloads on Commercial Satellites, 2nd Edition study as a starting point, this webinar will analyze several aspects of the HP market, including end user requirements, budget issues, risk elements and technology developments.

At the core of the webinar is an evaluation of the overall value proposition of HPs that outlines major issues including the key market players likely to affect the HP market, a cost-benefit assessment on the client side, and ROI considerations from the host’s perspective. Market forecast scenarios will likewise be discussed to provide insights on market opportunities as well as highlight key issues that need to be addressed before HPs can become truly compelling over time. Finally, key global developments such as the U.S. Pivot Strategy towards the Asia Pacific will be outlined to determine their impact on HPs. Issues that will be covered in this webinar include...
