Customer demand in the telecom industry is changing. Their capacity needs are growing, and the demand for connectivity is being created even in underserved regions.

Telecom business demand shifts from broadcasting to connectivity as the telecom sector switches its focus from satellite-based video broadcasting to satellite-based IP communication and data.To meet this increased demand, the space industry, especially the satellite industry, is adapting by adopting software capabilities and transitioning from hardware-focused to software-focused with software-defined satellite architectures with standardized hardware.

These software-defined satellites will be able to meet the changing demands with their flexibility and reconfigurability capabilities.This research service discusses the impact of software-defined satellites on the traditional satellite manufacturing industry and ground infrastructure. In addition, it analyzes how cybersecurity is becoming more vital as satellites become software-defined, the recent developments, the future of GEO platforms, and the growth opportunities generated by software-defined satellites.
