(18-19 October)

GEEKS is leading and running the afternoon program on Day 2 (19 October).

The Space and Satellite Regulatory Colloquium will address the legal issues at the cutting edge of the space and satellite industry, and aims to foster dialogue among the participants on addressing these legal, regulatory and financing issues.

The GEEKS Day 2 Agenda will include 3 roundtable sessions with industry experts discussing the following topics:

Universal Service: Puerto Rico, The Arctic & Everything in Between

This year, more than $1 billion has been earmarked for connectivity projects pointed at underserved markets in North America and the Caribbean. Contracts for Puerto Rican networks are to be awarded. Broadband is being rolled out for indigenous communities in Canada‚Äôs Arctic Shield. And short-term deployments are scheduled throughout rural America. But questions remain regarding how — and whether — satellite communications has a role to play, and the extent to which policy and regulation enable or prevent its use. This session will provide answers.

Satellite Regulation 3.0: The NGSO Dream Scenario

Regulatory precedents hang in the balance: Thousands of non-geostationary satellites are scheduled for near-term launch, but boxes are yet to be ticked for landing rights, light-touch licensing, and a host of regulatory must haves. How far have NGSO operators (and their channel partners) gotten in securing what they need, what more is required to enable cost-effective delivery of service… and can they actually pull this off? Find out from this panel of front-line experts.

How Regulation Can Enable a 5G Network of Networks… of Networks

So you want to implement a 5G network of networks to leverage the inherent synergies of wireless with various permutations of satellite (GEO or NGSO), aerial platforms (HAPS, UAVs or balloons), fiber (EDFA, ESCON, FDDI, CWDM or DWDM) with spectrum (licensed or unlicensed) and / or crypto-based off-grid solar power. Globally. What regulatory considerations must be made to enable the unparalleled level of innovation envisioned for 5G rollouts?
