Satcon 2009 Early Thoughts

I am here at the Satcon show in New York where I am having a number of meetings with satellite equipment solution providers. In general the industry is doing well. The show seems healthy and there is optimism about next year. Broadband stimulus funds don't seem to be impacting the players here that greatly and the consumer satellite market is under pressure from faster ADSL-based solutions and cable. But other markets such as the video industry (broadcasting, radio as well), maritime, oil and gas and emerging markets seems to be doing well. I should note one vendor told me the oil sector is a bit down year over year. IP is transforming this market like it has revolutionized communications, publishing and technology in general. We will likely see more hybrid solutions combining the best of satellite and other technologies such as WiMAX and LTE. More to come.
