Overcoming the challenges of connectivity


Satellite in an expanding world

The increase of globalisation and digitisation has affected the economy, how we work, and how we connect in the world. This has no doubt had an effect also on satellite services – the way we connect has uncovered new challenges for satellite service providers to keep up with the needs and expectations of customers worldwide. Eutelsat offers solutions to these challenges in the form of a revolutionary new connectivity service – Eutelsat ADVANCE.

Challenges for service providers

The terms ‘globalisation and digitisation’ have seen a lot of use in the past few decades as we acknowledge the shrinking world created by the internet and travel. Globalisation has allowed companies to expand across borders and enter foreign markets. With the nature of satellite internet, this could prove a risk to providers who might not be able to give the service they promise to all users across the board.  Hand-in-hand with this, digitalisation offers opportunities for new technologies and subsequently new growth in companies. These trends are only growing, and as a result, the rest of the world needs to catch up with the opportunities they present to businesses.

The demand of today’s consumers also brings forward the need to keep your cloud at full readiness and up to date with best-practice transformation. Over the past two years, the current global health crisis has proved that it is imperative to have connectivity available for all uses and users.

With this comes the challenge of establishing realistic budgets. The global trend of companies expanding across borders and into different territories might prove challenging to keep budgets to a minimum without extra charges for service providers. Centralised control is usually easier to manage in terms of budgets and simplifying processes, but that might not always be possible.

Satellite is the only technology that guarantees fast, reliable speeds, with little to no investment in infrastructure. Installation of terminals is easy, contact points are simplified, and service providers can tailor speeds to their needs. Satellite is the only medium that can reach remote areas and open up new markets – making it an essential investment avenue.
