Billions of people still do not have internet services – mainly in emerging markets. New low-cost broadband solutions are needed.
The Forsway whitepaper paper describes a highly unique hybrid satellite/DVB-T2 – cellular/xDSL solution combining the ubiquitous downlink coverage of satellite/DVB-T2 and low-cost uplink of terrestrial technology for providing broadband to all – even those in low density and low ARPU markets.
Embracing the cloud and infrastructure-as-a-service as drivers of growth for the satellite industry

For this to happen, satellite teleport operators need to deploy a cloud infrastructure where modern, quickly evolving software-based services can run, and delivering short turnaround times for upgrades.
