CWIC: Plenary 1

Satellite & Hybrid Networks

Book now!

Extending the reach of mobile in a sustainable way – are satellite and hybrid networks the answer to connecting the unconnected?

The near universal coverage of non-terrestrial networks is offering new solutions that will revolutionise industries, from supply chain tracking in logistics to land monitoring in agriculture. Elsewhere, almost certainly wireless will have a role to play in getting high speed broadband connectivity to UK homes in rural locations where fibre is too costly. And at the same time, the UK’s emergency services, requiring high reliability coverage in all parts of the UK, are transitioning to the Emergency Services Network (ESN) being delivered by BT/EE.

This plenary will explore the potential of satellites in improving coverage and delivering progressive services. It will ask what role satellites might play in these projects compared to terrestrial networks, and where else might they enhance our digital and circular economies?
