11:00 - 13:00 - Debate: The Market as seen by Market Players
Traditional satellite operators are being challenged to seek new business models in an environment in which the rules of supply and demand are still uncertain, as the new LEO and MEO satellite constellations are launched, and with the arrival of 5G, IoT services and new generations of GEO satellites. In Brazil, a sluggish economic recovery – coupled with complicated regulatory and tax hurdles – bring additional challenges. What is the scenario like from the viewpoint of major market players?
13:00 - 14:00 Lunch
14:00 - 15:30 - Panel 7: The Consolidation of (and in) the Ka-Band Market
