Explore the crucial role of satellite in becoming a connected world.
Advancing Toward a Connected World: The Role of Non-terrestrial Innovations
Half the world’s population does not have access to the internet, leaving roughly 4 billion people excluded from the socio-economic benefits of connectivity. 600 million cannot connect simply because they live in largely rural areas without access to mobile broadband coverage.
Today’s advanced satellite technologies and services play a crucial role in connecting the unconnected, especially in places where terrestrial backhaul is not practical for connecting mobile networks. Only when mobile network operators, internet service providers, and government regulators include innovative satellite solutions as part of their strategy will the rest of the world gain access to life-changing connectivity.
In this webinar, the challenges of rural connectivity and the latest satellite innovations in space and on the ground that will enable the communications industry to close the digital divide are examined.
