What does a satellite connectivity company do with 10 gigabits/second of new capacity? “Deliver it to customers” was an easy answer for Anuvu’s EVP Connectivity Mike Pigott. But how that capacity gets allocated, and what it means for the company’s evolution of mobile connectivity is rather more complex.
Anuvu’s appetite for bandwidth continues to grow. The company secured a deal with Telesat for 10 gigabits/second of Ka-band capacity to boost mobility connection options.
It should come as no surprise that a trio of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite operators believe more than 90% of in-flight connectivity traffic will pass over their networks in a decade’s time. Still, hearing how SpaceX, OneWeb and Telesat believe their upcoming constellations will compete for traffic during this week’s Connected Aviation Intelligence Summit reveals slightly different takes on the market and what they believe will be necessary to secure customers going forward.
