Unofficial Notes: STS Tech Day, August 16th 2017

Summit Ridge Group’s Unofficial Notes

Executive Summary

We attended STS Global’s second annual Tech Day on August 15th at its Stonybook, NY headquarters. About 75 industry professionals attended. The day was filled with solid presentation and detailed discussions about a range of issues impacting the satellite sector. This year’s line-up was notable in that much of the information was relevant across the telecom sector. Perhaps this is a reflection of increasing technology convergence?

The presentations also highlighted the massive amount of change facing the satellite sector. No area is immune – data storage and optimization, satellite antennas and other ground equipment, telecom protocols, last mile communication technology, power management and cyber security.
