“Optimizing Satellite Mobility Solutions in New Frequency Bands”

Over the next few years, the MSS industry is facing a transformation from traditional from traditional L-band services offering modest amounts of bandwidth on a cost-per-bit basis to a new era of higher speed L-band, as well as Ku-band and Ka-band services enabling higher speeds. Inmarsat has led the way with its Global Xpress system, which will offer global mobility services in Ka-band, and Viasat, Eutelsat and YahSat are offering even more bandwidth in regional markets. However, FSS players, led by Intelsat, are fighting back with enhanced Ku-band maritime and aeronautical coverage, which may present a much lower risk alternative for some customers and service providers. This session will debate how both customers and providers view new L-band offerings and the transition to Ku and Ka-band, and which players are best placed to win in the mobility services market over the next decade.

“COMSATCOM Information Assurance/Cyber Protection”

While attempting to define new approaches to acquire commercial SATCOM products and continued reliance on COMSATCOM in military markets, there is a growing need for increasing cyber and information security protection. This market has relied on a diverse set of suppliers with local, risk-based security protection that are measured against NIST standards. The diversity of COMSAT protection poses a challenging protection standard for government network enterprises. Thus, the ability for network enterprises to accept this uncertainty may significantly diminish over time, which could affect the potential to close COMSAT acquisitions. As a specific case, the hosted payload offers an example of a particular IA/cyber challenge for the future.

Traditional IT acquisitions impose rigorous design and reporting structures to assure their approved protection. Compared to traditional acquisition structures, lengthy design/approval procedures are incompatible with most commercial business timelines. This panel will look at the implications of cyber threats, the prospects for standardized authentication, self-monitoring and system protection features to respond to intrusion.
