“High Throughput Satellites Broadband connectivity for everyone”
9:15 to 9:55 AM – High Throughput Satellite – The next big thing?
HTS technology was introduced in the early 2000s. Industry analysts at Northern Sky Research believe now that high-throughput satellites (HTS) will supply at least 1.34 TBps of capacity by 2020. Where is the HTS technology standing today? Let’s review the major players, the global coverage, as well as the various market applications.
Speakers: Caleb Henry (Via -Satellite) – Lou Zacharilla (SSPI)
10:00 to 110:00 AM – Broadband Connectivity – it’s all about Throughput
Satellite technologies continue to evolve, and now offer a diverse set of architectures each optimized for different solution sets. With all IP networks the rule rather than the exception these networks can efficiently deliver bandwidth to all applications. This session will focus on the advantages and limitations of the latest satellite based systems..
Fixed Terrestrial Wireless Systems share in this evolutionary path. New systems and architectures can focus on delivering broadband to support all applications new KA band point to multipoint systems provide fiber like connectivity filling a niche between Fiber and Satellite in terms of optimum Broadband density.
Moderator: Steve Yablonski
Speakers: Neil Berriman, Mark Stodgill (Hammer Fiber)
11:00 to 11:55 AM – HTS Technology and Satellite Backhaul for 4G LTE.
LTE is normally thought of in terms of the latest in mobile data speeds, this it is, but simultaneously, it is an entirely new Mobile architecture based on pure packet network concepts. This is the major revolution from the 2G, 3G evolution, which remained based on circuit network concepts.
LTE presents new challenges to the technologies supporting its backhaul, and new opportunities to create effective solutions for a wide range or requirements.
This session will explore the path from 2G to LTE, and the new opportunities that are created.
Moderator: Steve Yablonski (STS Global)
Speakers: Bruce Berdnarski (Xiplink, Richard Swardh (Comtech), Brett Calder (Sunroute Network)
1:00 to 1:55 PM – CyberSecurity for Broadcast – are you prepared??
As the broadcast industry moves to IP infrastructure and leverages the benefits of IT technologies and cloud-based solutions, it is facing new threats and vulnerabilities never seen before. How is our industry responding to this new challenge and how serious are the threats? Let’s review the leading cybersecurity framework and understand the critical security controls that have evolved in response to this challenge.
Speaker: Ron Clifton (Clifton group)
2:00 to 2:55 PM – Ka-Band/HTS Network: Where complexity meets technology
From military to commercial applications, the Ka-Band technology is synonymous with network design complexity. From product manufacturers to integrators, let’s discuss the challenges and opportunities that this technology is bringing to the table.
Moderator: Lou Zacharilla (SSPI)
Speakers: Steve Good (Comtech), Mike Cascone (CPI), Drew Klein (C-COM), Gerhard Franz (AG Franz)
3:00-3:30 PM closing remarks
David Hershberg (STS Global) and Lou Zacharilla (SSPI)
