Description

As the satellite telecoms industry transitions from a world dominated by point-to-multipoint video services, to one that is more slanted towards data connectivity, spectrum increasingly becomes a precious resource. Verticals such as consumer broadband, 3G and 4G backhaul, and M2M/IoT will require huge volumes of capacity, and with C-band under continued attack, it is only natural to assume that operators will, at some point in the not-so-distant future, migrate to higher frequency bands.

In this industry-first study , NSR examines the respective benefits and drawbacks of V-band, the frequency band just above Ka-band, and one which is expected to become increasingly relevant for satellite operators, whether in GEO, MEO or LEO, over the course of the next decade and beyond. NSR's V-band Satellite Markets Study answers key questions, including:

  • What are the benefits and drawbacks of V-band as compared to Ku-band or Ka-band capacity, from the perspective of the satellite operator, and the perspective of the end-user?
  • How will V-band enter the market , and during what timeframe will this occur?
  • Which regions are more likely and less likely to see V-band capacity launched over the coming decade and beyond, and for what reasons?
  • To what extent will V-band influence the development of Non-GEO-HTS business models ?

With NSR having spoken to relevant parties in the market about V-band developmental plans, and having taken data from NSR's existing research library on supply/demand for other frequency bands, NSR's V-band Satellite Markets provides a comprehensive look at the future development of V-band. In this first-of-its-kind study, NSR delves into the ins and outs of V-band from a technological, CAPEX, and capacity perspective, providing the reader with a thorough understanding of the benefits and drawbacks of this frequency, how its rollout will impact the industry, and over what timeframe this will occur.

NSR's V-band Satellite Markets provides coverage of V-band gateway capacity by region, including North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Asia, with forecasts from 2020-2030. Given the potential for Non-GEO-HTS constellations in V-band, including an announced constellation plan by Boeing, NSR also conducted analysis of Non-GEO-HTS. With the practical implementation of V-band still beyond the horizon, NSR gives the reader a thorough understanding of the technical pros and cons of V-band for different use cases, and provide an understanding of the costs and benefits of this new frequency.

Primary Questions Addressed in this Report Include:

  • Why is V-band an appealing option for satellite operators, and in what instances will this be the case?
  • What is the timeframe during which we can expect V-band to enter the market, and how does this vary by region?
  • How will V-band revolutionize the LEO-HTS business model, and what will be the larger impact on the GEO industry?
  • What other "higher frequency bands" are being considered, and why?
  • What are some of the challenges that must be overcome in order to achieve V-band adoption?

Primary Elements of the Report Include:

  • Industry trend analysis including NSR's qualitative assessment of each major market segment
  • PowerPoint file including insights and discussion on V-band technology and its uses
  • Includes Excel sheets with all key data, tables and charts
