Singapore – Every year, CommunicAsia hosts its annual SatComm event, where Asia’s largest gathering of satellite communications companies come together to showcase their latest technology and discuss current and future industry trends and challenges. With the Cybersecurity Market Report predicting that worldwide spending on cyber security will top US$1 trillion for the five-year period from 2017 to 2021, this year’s event is set to put a spotlight on cyber-security in satellite operations.

“The Internet of Things and its rapid growth has created immense opportunities for satellite and teleport operators, which in turn has created more security risks,” said Victor Wong, Project Director for Communications Events at organiser UBM SES. “However, satellite solutions remain a reliable and secure way to transmit information and we look forward to seeing the latest technologies our exhibitors will bring toSatComm.”

Exhibiting at SatComm will be Eutelsat Communications – a French-based leading satellite operator. Jean-Francois Fenech, CEO of Eutelsat Asia, said, “SatComm/CommunicAsia is an invaluable networking platform for Eutelsat, an opportunity to show our solutions for Asia-Pacific and global connectivity, and to take the pulse of the region’s vibrant communications landscape. It’s also a valuable place to discuss emerging trends and challenges in the industry, such as cyber security, and how to address and prepare for these.”
