Satellite communications systems have become an essential part of the
Telecommunications infrastructure. This session will give an introduction to the fundamentals of satellite communications systems, including how information is carried by an electromagnetic wave, how transmission errors can be corrected, which parameters influence the performance of the system and how multiple users can share the capacity of a satellite. This session will also provide an overview of satellite system architecture, types of orbits, and will explain space, control and ground segments and the various international launch services available to satellite operators.
Kevin Seow, VP Corporate Development APAC, SES World Skies Singapore
This presentation will examine the international rules regulating satellite telecommunications networks and services from the point of view of the use of frequencies and orbital positions. It will also make reference to national regulatory systems in the Asia Pacific. The session will explain the role of the ITU in coordinating the global use of the radiofrequency spectrum and explain the concept of harmful interference and the different methods of sharing spectrum and orbital resources. It will also explain the role of national administrations as representatives of member States in requesting the use of frequencies for satellite communications, in establishing national regulatory frameworks and in controlling the delivery of services through national licensing arrangements.
Jose del Rosario, Research Director, NSR
This presentation will discuss the evolution of the satellite telecommunications markets and technologies. It will examine how the industry has, over time, split into various key submarkets including Fixed (FSS), Broadcast (BSS) and Mobile (MSS) satellite services. The session will also present key elements of satellite technology and evolving service offerings together with future growth trends. In particular, it will talk about new satellite technologies, orbital configurations, and changes in user terminals, making them smaller, more mobile and lower in cost.
