Satellite and NTN Summit - Full recording from MWC Las Vegas 2023

GSMA Intelligence hosted the Satellite and NTN Summit at MWC 2023 to explore the transformative impact of satellite networks, driven by the inclusion of satellite connectivity in Apple’s iPhone 14.

With expanding coverage from LEO operators like Starlink and OneWeb and the formalization of non-terrestrial networks in 3GPP standards, telco-satellite partnerships are gaining momentum, promising increased coverage and revenues.

This summit dove into the top strategic priorities and the emerging potential of satellite networks in revolutionising global connectivity. Our expert line-up explored their ability to drive substantial revenue impact across consumer and B2B/IoT segments while reshaping the competitive dynamics within the satellite industry.

Topics covered:

  • Strategic priorities for satellite integration in mobile networks (4G and 5G).
  • Technological advances at the chipset and device level.
  • Viable business models in telco-satellite partnerships.
  • Impact of satellite connectivity on internet access, customer adoption, and revenue growth.
