WILMINGTON, DE and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- NSR's Commercial Mobility via Satellite, 10th Edition report finds the maritime market will dominate demand for FSS satellite capacity in large part due to cruise ships, offshore platforms and merchant maritime customers.
At over 980,000 in-service units by 2023, the maritime market will demand almost 160 transponders of FSS capacity, and generate more than $5.5 billion dollars in retail revenue. Over the next ten years a migration towards High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) offerings is quite likely across most maritime markets, except fishing that may see more hybrid systems such as MSS broadband or small VSAT services alongside narrowband offerings.
"Bandwidth demand is rising across most ships, and with more capacity available globally, the industry is in a race to meet the needs for seafarers, crew and passengers that want to stay connected," said Claude Rousseau, NSR Research Director and co-author of the report. "With growth stabilizing from economic recession in the maritime market, there is more focus on improving operational efficiencies, providing services to crew to retain them, and to ensure compliance with regulations," added Brad Grady, NSR Senior Analyst and co-author of the report. With newer, larger, more sophisticated maritime vessels under construction, connectivity and communications will be a key enabler of cost and operational efficiencies - from fishing vessels to cruise ships.
Going forward, the 'Fear of Missing Out (#FOMO) for both work and pleasure will trigger a drive to more broadband connectivity, leading vendors to expand into what could be high-growth markets for new bandwidth. "The passenger market is one visible segment that emulates this trend and as a result will show a doubling of the VSAT market penetration in the next decade," stated Grady, "but at the same time, crew and operational needs in merchant maritime and offshore platforms and vessels will capture the largest slice of the 160 transponders of demand at the end of 2023."

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessi...

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle. This impacts the ability to deliver high quality software at the needed velocity to drive positive business outcomes. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Eric Robertson, General Manager at CollabNet, will discuss how customers are able to achieve a level of transparency that e...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
