Boosting Global Connectivity with Cutting-Edge Satellite Innovations

Kampala, 2nd July 2024 – GSOA published the latest of its White Papers: “New Satellite Technologies for Transformative Connectivity” during the Global Symposium of Regulators 2024, organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in Kampala, Uganda. This insightful guide explores the innovative technologies and advancements that are driving the satellite communications industry forward.

This comprehensive paper highlights a range of new developments that are making satellite communications more versatile and cost-effective, meeting the increasing demand for seamless, reliable, and resilient connectivity.

These technological innovations are driving a new era for the connectivity and communications ecosystem, contributing to bridging the digital divide and helping achieve global inclusivity.

Digital connectivity is increasingly becoming the backbone of economic growth and societal development and innovation in satellite communications plays a critical role in helping achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As the ecosystem evolves rapidly, looking ahead, it is also critical to accompany this innovation with a flexible and predictable framework that encourages collaboration, investment and responds to citizens’ needs.

“By leveraging industry expertise and increasing the dialogue with regulators, we can create innovative and agile policy frameworks, that can help deliver transformative connectivity around the world, including in unserved and underserved areas,” said Isabelle Mauro, Director General of GSOA. “This is about shaping a future where no one is left behind.”
