Cybersecurity – Cut yourself off from threats
Every industry – now more than ever – faces evolving cyber-attacks by criminals, terrorists, and nation-states. The cyber threat environment is complex, and the stakes are high. In response to these ongoing threats, satellite communications technology can provide a safer solution these challenges: What are the steps to take to better protect your network and its content? Open discussions between equipment / software manufacturers, service providers, and integrator.

SATELLITE – Connecting the Unconnectable.
Fifty years ago, having access to communications equipment and services was a luxury that was only available in major cities. In today’s world, communications has almost become a primary need for the human race. Being connected is a standard for the modern world. How do you connect the unconnectable at a reasonable price using the latest telecommunication technology? Hybrid solutions? Satcom, Wimax, Fiber…?
Moderator: Lou Zacharilla (SSPI)
Alan Rossi (Consultelar) – Mark Stogdill (Hammer Fiber) – Steve Yablonski (STS Global)
Power versus Size: Can we do more with less.?
50 years ago, we had to install 20+ meters to carry simple voice traffic to the next continent. Today the latest technology can effectively carry voice video and data over a sub meter terminal. The satellite technology equipment has evolved so much this past 50 years that it has enable us to do more with less… From the antenna to the HPA and modems, we will discuss what will be the latest technology that will allow us to minimize and simplify ground station equipment.

The Revolution Continues – Current and Next-Gen Data
As the world digitizes and moves everything to data driven architectures, there is a foundation that is needed to set a new course for company data. This discussion will focus on an integrated and comprehensive survey of key concepts such as cloud, NoSQL, data leaks, analytics, AI, and application driven systems. This allows follow up into other key resources and top entities within the community.
Peter Cresse (Javlin/Entropy) – STSGlobal.data.Aug2017
11:00 to 11:55 AM – Considerations for LTE over VSAT
The presentation will introduce the terminology/technology and topologies for todays 3G and 4G networks, highlighting the differences which serve to illustrate why LTE/4G should be considered the preferred solution going forward for providing mobile broadband services over VSAT( whether licensed or unlicensed). We will then introduce LTE optimizations concepts and explain how those technologies benefit the Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and provide for a better Quality of Experience (QoE) for end users.
