The Future is Here: Next-Generation Land Mobility Networks

Explore how key industries are evolving and what solutions will drive innovation forward.

John Gage, Sun Microsystems, c1980s:

“The network is the computer.”

This quote from internet pioneer John Gage reflects the belief that the de-centralisation array of computing is much more significant than the existence of any one computer by itself. Today, we know this principle as the “network effect”. In modern terms, it asserts that the value of a network is directly proportional to the square of the number of nodes (or “devices”) connected to it.

The Catalyst for High-throughput Satellite Networks

Given today’s staggering number of communication network types, protocols and devices that fuel our world’s digital transformation, the “network effect” mentioned above remains incredibly relevant. Achieving seamless data orchestration is a daunting task to say the least. Everything from sensors and antennas to machines and ground stations must interact continuously, at unimaginable speeds.

Industries from mining and rail to oil and gas, first responders and humanitarian aid rely on a wide array of communications network configurations to keep operations flowing reliably wherever their operations take them. Whether at headquarters, a remote outpost, or on the move in a temporarily fixed location, these operations are increasingly dependent on complex applications that require resilient, high-performing network access.

Below we dive into connectivity-related trends and challenges. To gain a deeper understanding, Intelsat partnered with Harbor Research to conduct a global survey targeting key land mobility markets. Insights into end user pain points, requirements and priorities for networking solutions are explored here.

Connectivity-related Trends and Challenges

Land Mobility industries are looking to invest in:

  • 52% Cloud infrastructure
  • 47% Higher performing network
  • 39% Big data and analytics

From boosting operational efficiency to safeguarding employees and monitoring assets, Land Mobility industries worldwide believe updating their connectivity networks will propel industry innovation.
