About this event
Held Bi-Annually in London and Washington DC as a person to person event since 2012... the HTS Roundtable has evolved, with the satellite industry, from the hugely powerful FSS satellites launched shortly after the turn of the decade, through to the current era of multi-sized, multi earth orbit, mega-constellations of communications satellites and their hyperconvergence with terrestrial technologies, initially to meet the demands and requirements of remote connectivity scenarios but more recently, to enhance the capability of terrestrial networks to cope with exponentially rising data volumes, not just in remote locations but urban settings too. The HTS Roundtable has featured speakers from all of the Satellite Operators, Service Providers and Equipment Designers.
