Providing connectivity in remote areas to maritime and aviation end-users is paramount to increase crew and passenger welfare and safety, optimise fleet management, and implement fuel-efficient ways of operating vessels and aircraft. The Mobility Connectivity Conference at Space Tech Expo Europe bridges the gap between merchant shipping, cruise shipping and commercial aviation’s connectivity requirements, and the technical solutions satellite operators, service providers and ground network providers can now offer through a developing and maturing space and ground technology infrastructure.
The conference covered essential talking points as both the maritime and aviation industries experience a surge in connectivity demand in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and in an increasingly connected and digitalised world. Topics included passenger expectations following the pandemic, crew welfare optimisation through advanced communication systems, high-data transfer in remote areas, optimised terminals and antennas, hybrid network solutions and advanced onboard communication technology.
Situated close to key maritime and aviation hubs in Central Europe and in Germany’s city of space, the Mobility Connectivity Conference brings together key stakeholders within the maritime, aviation and satellite communications and connectivity industries to accelerate the implementation of digitalised, connected fleet. Speaking organisations including OneWeb, AWS, Costa Crociere and Deutsche Telekom among many more.
