World Teleport Association Panels at the NAB Show

Panel: Satellite - The Future of 5G
South Upper Hall - Destination 5G Theater - SU13306
Tuesday, April 9 - 10:30AM

The terrestrial mobile industry is working hard to complete the 5G specification and begin deployment of a network promising blazing speeds.  That network will also depend on much greater density of cell sites to support high-bandwidth, low-latency service.  To keep deployment costs manageable, 5G networks will centralize most processing in data centers and use new technologies to interconnect baseband units with remote radio units at the edge, which is known as fronthaul.  That centralization means that fronthaul traffic will add considerably to the capacity demands of 5G.  The obvious solution is fiber – but its deployment beyond urban and suburban areas quickly becomes hard to cost-justify.  The long-term roll-out of 5G depends on managing a hybrid mix of fiber, microwave and satellite to extend its benefits beyond the urban core. Join us, along with senior leaders from satellite providers and content delivery executives to unpack this change and we collectively prepare for 5G.

Panel: Connected Cars Will Run on Satellite
North Hall - In-Vehicle Experience  Theater - N5306
Wednesday, April 10 - 10:30AM

There are already millions of connected cars on the road relying on the same cellular networks we use for phones to deliver internet access, streaming audio and roadside assistance.  But try streaming a Netflix show for your kids and the limits become apparent. Cellular does not go everywhere – which doesn’t matter for entertainment but matters very much for safety.  As cars become increasingly autonomous, the challenges to connectivity will rise.  They will need detailed and up-to-date maps to supplement vision systems.  They will need massive software updates as often as a mobile phone does, especially in the early days of the technology.  Experts expect 5G, with its blazing speeds, to come to the rescue but 5G will be an urban phenomenon for years to come.  Join us at NAB Show and hear how satellite connectivity will provide the essential foundation for the success of the connected car.
