Susan Bull, Senior Consultant and Partner, COMSYS

Hear Susan Bull, Senior Consultant and Partner of COMSYS share her insights on the present and future state of satellite communications. With capacity prices continuing to fall, the primary focus is no longer on the bandwidth. Satellite operators and service providers are targeting the applications, services and content that customers will pay for and that will drive revenues according to Susan. Lessons can be learned from the telecommunications industry and how that sector addressed similar challenges. Will the aero, maritime or the mobility market drive growth? Find out which sector Susan is bullish on and which one she believes is over hyped. With some much technological advancement in space with HTS and smallsat constellations, how will the ground sector keep up? Susan describes a future where flat panel antennas will have the intelligence, efficiency and price points to meet the demands on the ground for these transformational technologies. With 5G coming, Susan believes the industry will see much more integration between the terrestrial and satellite worlds to satisfy the end-to-end communications needs of customers.
