In the second of a three-part series, 6GWorld spoke to Roel Jansen, CEO of Hiber, to explore the work they are doing on supporting global IoT services through spaceborne communications. Especially with the renewed attention that satellite communications is receiving from companies including Softbank, SpaceX and Amazon understanding how the environment is developing for companies delivering satellite-based services is particularly relevant.
6GWorld had the pleasure of talking to two executives recently from very different companies working to forge partnerships between telecoms service providers and other industries. However, there are striking similarities in the evolutionary paths that they, and the operators they work with, have followed to create effective partnerships with players in other industries that allow operators to monetise their capabilities.
For mobile network operators, change has been the one constant factor as mobile technology has moved, sometimes smoothly but always relentlessly, through the Gs. But the change that the transition to 5G and then 6G will set in motion is beginning to look like the destination point for all that went before it, as Akil Chomoko, Chief Marketing Officer at MDS Global, explains.
