Driving Satellite Innovation
Martin Coleman, Executive Director, the Satcoms Innovation Group, considers the challenges facing
the satellite networks, the innovative solutions on show, and the wider implications for the industry...

T

he satellite industry is facing a huge number
of challenges right now, but at the same
time it has a wealth of opportunity if those
challenges can be effectively mitigated. On the
one hand, much of its existing customer base
is moving away from satellite. Nowhere is this
more true than with broadcast, where we are
seeing a global rise of Over-The-Top (OTT)
video services. How can satellite compete in
an increasingly connected world?
At the same time, we are seeing large LEO
constellations being launched adding a vast
number of new satellites into an already
overcrowded space, which risks causing
both further debris and wide-scale satellite
interference. How do we overcome these
challenges to ensure satellite remains the
reliable and robust network it is today?
The Connected Consumer
The everyday life of consumers has changed
dramatically over recent years. One of the
biggest themes is that consumers expect
constant connectivity wherever they may
be. Consumers (me included) really do get
frustrated when the connection drops, even
when they are hurtling across the country on
a train or car, crossing the oceans on a boat
or a plane or simply working away from the
office.

Flashback: The SIG (then IRG) 2018 tour

The rise in OTT video, which is predicted
to rise 35% in 2019 according to the
Convergence Research Group, is a perfect
example of that, feeding consumers with
the content they want when and where they
want it. You only need to spend an hour or so
on a train to see that more and more people
are catching up on the latest series on the
commute to work, for example.
We are also seeing a rise in Internet of
Things (IoT), with Statista forecasting the total
number of devices to reach 27 billion by the
end of this year and a whopping 75 billion by
2025.
All of this, far from being negative for the
satellite industry, is actually great news.
What other technology can ensure constant
connectivity, even on the move? Not
forgetting that Internet of Things and high
definition video are examples of extremely
data-hungry applications, another area
where satellite can help with huge amounts
of available bandwidth. The impending LEO
launches will further address those needs.
Congested Space
The opportunity is definitely there for
satellite, however, we still need to ensure that
we are managing space well to ensure good
connectivity and service at all times. One
thing that is certain with today's constantly
connected consumer, there is no room for
error.
We already have a massive problem with
far too much debris in space. As this moves
around, it puts all satellites at risk and another
collision would of course cause further
debris, making the problem worse still. We

need to get better at monitoring exactly what
is happening and predicting collisions before
they become a reality. And yet, the industry
is about to launch huge quantities of new
satellites up into space, before we have truly
mastered tracking the existing objects.
Satellite interference also remains a
problem, though thankfully somewhat
diminished at this point in time. Once new
LEO constellations are added to the mix,
how will that affect interference? We don't
honestly know the answer yet but unless both
constellation and carriers are well managed
and monitored, it will likely impact services
for many.
The Importance of Innovation
The only way to ensure satellite truly thrives
is to innovate. That means better tools for
monitoring and detecting interference, an
area where we have seen a lot of innovation
over the past couple of years. New and
better tools for tracking satellites and debris
are now a must. There are a number of
providers working to improve this area, what
we really need is for them to work together
for the greater good of the industry and the
environment.
The other area where I see we could
really make a difference to the efficiency
and capacity of the hybrid of satellite and
terrestrial networks is through integrating
automation with Artificial Intelligence (AI).
AI is about using data and machine learning
(ML) to teach a system certain automated
tasks, prediction (through probability case
evaluation) and error resolution. One thing the
satellite industry is not short of is data, but

Carnegie Technologies' Comms Solutions
C

arnegie Technologies is showcasing
innovative
new
technologies
at
CommunicAsia.
This includes the SatBridge satellite terminal
and the Longview IoT solution, both of which
are built from the ground up to remove
barriers to cost and access with solutions
that expand the reach of rich communication
networks and reduce burdens of delivery.
SatBridge makes anywhere, anytime
connectivity a reality by enabling companies
and consumers to connect and communicate
over satellite using the full capabilities of their
smartphone and smart devices. SatBridge
redefines what a satellite terminal can do with
the highest speeds in its category; 300-meter
Wi-Fi range, optional Follow-Me Roaming

(allows use of existing phone numbers), and
more.
With the Follow-Me roaming feature,
SatBridge users can call, text and transmit
high-speed data by satellite, using their own
phone and phone number, with up to eight
devices connected concurrently. SatBridge's
automatic pointing antenna provides a truly
"pause and play" satellite connection at 20
times the data rate of traditional handheld
satellite phones.
The communications solution is perfect
for remote workers, adventurists and
disaster recovery/emergency situations
where communications is critical
and cellular connectivity is non-existent or
unreliable.

combination of custom-engineered sensors,
gateways, cloud analytics, and industry-

we need to use that data to reduce the cost
of today's network management by enabling
much faster resolution of incidents. AI could
help with detecting errors and orbit locations,
but it can also go a step further with the right
data, helping the industry predict what is likely
to happen in these areas.
Innovation Tours
All this aside, there have been some really
interesting innovations coming out of the
satellite industry over recent months. At
ConnecTechAsia, we are once again hosting
our satellite technology tours, visiting some of
the Satcoms Innovation Group members and
seeing their latest innovations.
Having spoken with members about recent
developments, I think this year is going to be
the most exciting to date. If you would like
to join us, please head to the Information
Counter on Level 5 at Marina Bay Sands at
11am on each day of the show.
We will also be discussing recent satellite
communications innovations in our sessions
on tomorrow, on the SatComm Stage, Level 1
Marina Bay Sands.

specific applications that is far more than
traditional IoT platforms on the market today.
Asset tracking and sensor monitoring is
needed across many industries, but many
don't have the time, money or staff to deploy,
configure and maintain complicated IoT
solutions. Longview is a secure, reliable and
efficient solution to solve this problem right
out of the box, built from the ground up to
work together and pre-configured to quickly
and easily be up and running without the
need for a dedicated IT person.
It is a simple, secure, end-to-end IoT
solution built for enterprises including
construction, ranching, oil and gas,
hospital campuses, smart cities and more.
