Webinar - Direct to Device Satellite Services

The United States has become the first country to set ground rules for allowing satellite operators to use radio waves from terrestrial mobile partners to keep smartphone users connected beyond cell towers.

The regulatory framework marks a key milestone for a fledgling industry seeking to provide connectivity directly to mass-market devices from space, either via radio waves from terrestrial partners or from more conventional frequencies already approved for Mobile Satellite Services.

This webinar will discuss how the Federal Communications Commission’s Supplemental Coverage from Space (SCS) ruling has changed the state of play for both strategies, and what’s next for a market some believe will be worth more than $325 billion.
