News Image
As a subsidiary event at this year's CommunicAsia2014, this year's SatComm is to feature over 160 global and regional satellite and satellite-based communication enterprises.

Confirmed exhibitors include APT Satellite, Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS), Asia Satellite Telecommunications (AsiaSat), China Satellite Communications, Eutelsat, Gilat, Inmarsat, Intelsat, MEASAT, Newtec, SES, Singapore Technologies Electronics, SingTel Satellite, THAICOM and many more.
Lim Kian Soon, head of returning exhibitor SingTel Satellite, says: "Asia’s satellite landscape is currently undergoing a phase where several prevalent trends can lead to wider growth streams for industry players. For instance, we see an increasing adoption of broadband services in the maritime business. Demand for cellular backhaul is also on the rise, fuelled by growing data demands and the move to faster networks. DTH will continue to be the key driver for the growth of transponder demand this year where we see a boom in Asia.
"SingTel Satellite will be showcasing a series of innovative satellite services and solutions for broadcasters, enterprises and government agencies at SatComm2014. Our Playout and OTT broadcast solutions will provide the next generation of content management services and provide users with a whole new way of viewing content. SatComm2014 is an ideal platform to meet potential partners for strategic business partnerships and collaboration as well as to keep abreast of the latest technology so as to stay relevant to the satellite industry."

AsiaSat
AsiaSat 6 and AsiaSat 8 will expand its capacity and services in C and Ku-band complementing AsiaSat 3S, AsiaSat 4, AsiaSat 5 and AsiaSat 7. The company will also showcase its comprehensive solutions on broadcast, MCPC platform, telecommunications, occasional use and broadband services.

Iridium Communications
Iridium introduces the first global data broadcast services – Iridium Burstsm enabling enterprises to send data to an unlimited number of devices anywhere on earth, whether inside buildings, in-vehicle or in aircraft. From tsunami warnings to weather and traffic alerts, over-the-air updates and other machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, Iridium Burst presents an unrivaled opportunity for businesses, government agencies, militaries, and other entities needing to broadcast data.

MEASAT
The MEASAT fleet supports leading DTH platforms in Malaysia, Brunei, India and Indonesia, providing DTH multi-channel television services to over 18 million subscribers. The fleet is also used by many international channel operators to distribute television programming to pay television platforms, and by telecommunications operators to support remote connectivity, cellular backhaul and corporate VSAT networks.

SingTel Satellite – Worldwide Launch
SingTel’s Playout and Content Management solutions offer a new eco-system for content delivery. It provides flexibility and scalability from a single-channel application to a large multi-channel playout facility when required.

Thuraya Telecommunications
