Filling Technology Deserts with Space
Time: 1230-1355 ET
Our previous panel began the discussion about the future of telecommunications. Let’s continue this discussion with how to fill in the gaps in our network capacity, often referred to as rural broadband. Representatives from large fiber network infrastructure and equipment providers will join with space industry experts to raise awareness of the opportunities both here on Earth and in space. How can space technology be utilized to fill in these broadband deserts? What is the role for terrestrial infrastructure companies in the future development of space? Which terrestrial technologies are applicable and what needs to be developed? And how will space technologies help to increase throughput on our most highly used networks back here on Earth?
