Designing for the future next generation satellite technologies to enable african growth

  1. 1. Designing for the Future – Nextgeneration satellite technologies to enable African growth Abraham Awonuga Regional Customer Solutions Engineering Director, Intelsat
  2. 2. Connecting Africa by Satellite 6585 - 2
  3. 3. Connecting Africa by Satellite • Satellite Provides Affordable and Flexible Critical Network Infrastructure – Limited capex requirements – Investment in access equipment only • Ubiquitous Broadband Connectivity – 100% markets/populations covered today • Highly Reliable Networks – +99% network availability rates – “No cable cuts” • Flexibility Architecture – Supports “thin route” consumer connectivity to “thick route” commercial applications. • Enables eGov Initiatives – eSchools, eHealth, eGov/ICT, cloud services – delivered to markets of all sizes today 6585 - 3
  4. 4. Broadband Penetration & Speeds Increasing… Leading to an Explosion in IP Traffic Global IP Traffic – EB per Month • Global IP traffic is expected to more than double between now and 2015 • Global mobile data traffic will grow three times faster than fixed IP traffic 2 Source: Cisco 6585 - 4
  5. 5. The Role of Fixed Satellite Services for Connectivity Growth (2000-2012) • Satellite options of today: – Satellite was the first type of access connectivity used to connect Nigeria @ its GSM launch in 2001 – Allow for rapid deployment – Provide last-mile connectivity required to reach the most remote locations – Foster population welfare and improved quality of life – Provide resiliencies needed to meet SLAs at edges of hybrid networks 6585 - 5
  6. 6. Traditional Satellite Coverage 6585 - 6
  7. 7. Intelsat EpicNG Spot Beams 6585 - 7
  8. 8. The Design: Technical Considerations for Coverage • The size of beams formed by a standard satellite antenna size depends on frequency Ka-band Ku-band and C-band • The number of beams is constrained by satellite resources (power, mass, space) • The size of the targeted coverage is a major driver of frequency selection 200 miles 600 miles 1000 miles 6585 - 8
  9. 9. The Design of Beams • The size of beams formed by a standard satellite antenna size depends on frequency and • The number of beams is constrained by satellite resources (power, mass, space) • The size of the targeted coverage is a major driver of frequency selection Beams shown are for illustration only 6585 - 9
  10. 10. Increasing Throughput on Smaller Antennas Opens Addressable Markets 600Mpbs+ 600Mpbs+ 550Mpbs+ 1.2m 400Mpbs+ 180Mpbs+ 1.2m 1.0m 0.75m 0.46m 6585 - 10
  11. 11. 2016 and Beyond: The Right Physics and Right Economics for the Right Solution Existing • Current FSS design can continue to be leveraged by the large existing installed base and provide primary solutions in sparsely populated areas 6585 - 11
  12. 12. 2016 and Beyond: The Right Physics and Right Economics for the Right Solution Existing EpicNG Intelsat EpicNG: • Can be leveraged in more highly-populated areas that demand more bandwidth • Provide a very low-cost solution that can push a mobile network’s edge further into rural areas • Provides the bandwidth needed to backup highspeed core/backbone links. 6585 - 12
  13. 13. 2016 and Beyond: The Right Physics and Right Economics for the Right Solution Existing EpicNG • Economical backup to fiber/microwave links towards the edge of a network • Provides increased resiliency via a redundancy option in case of link failure The Intelsat EpicNG platform complements existing FSS designs - a layered network approach matches proper design and economics to best meet a given set of requirements 6585 - 13
  14. 14. Right Spectrum for the Right Application • The frequency selection is driven by many considerations: – Coverage and beam size – Atmospheric conditions in the region that is being served – Availability of a robust ecosystem of ground technologies C Ku Ka 6585 - 14
  15. 15. The Right Result and Benefits • Double or more increased in throughput capacity • Ease to provide access to e-gov services in schools, council offices e.t.c. • Lower Opex costs with higher throughput • Potentially leads to increase GDP for the country • Lower Capex for remote terminals allows for greater reach into rural and difficult to reach locations • Better flexibility using C or Ku or Ka • Better reliability and durability Intelsat EpicNG will complement Intelsat’s existing fleet, providing a hybrid layered network solution. Attractive economics are achieved through proper design to best meet a given set of requirements. 6585 - 15
  16. 16. High Performance Satellite Platform High Performance Open Platform High Capacity Backward Compatible High Efficiency Multi-band High Throughput Complementary Overlay Flexible Lower Cost of Ownership All-region Coverage Resilient and Secure Page: - 17 17 6585
  17. 17. Applications for a Connected Future Hyper Connected World Device Aware World Media drives Broadband Connected World Connectivity everywhere Broadband Security Mobility Media 2021 Government Intelligent Networks 2016 2012 1:1 Customer Experience Money/Health/Education Specialized Networks Cost-effective IP-based Interoperability Scale and Flexibility 6585 - 18
  18. 18. In Conclusion… Satellite • Performance, Efficiency and Throughput • Flexibility • Coverage and Power Design • • • • Open Architecture Backwards Compatible Not “Pre-designed” Vender / Provider Economics • Lower Total Cost of Ownership • Highly Efficient Bits/MHz • Sweating Current Assets • Right Band and Capacity Sustainable applications • Enabling customers’ growth and market reach • Unlocking new applications in new markets 6585 - 19
