As a satellite communications operator, RSCC must ensure that its technical equipment remains operational round-the-clock under whatever circumstances: particularly, in times of worldwide emergency, the sensitivity of subscribers to highquality communications increased manifold.
While there is a lot of talk about how the major operators are going to invest in satellite capability going forward, a number of regional operators also face a similar dilemma. Via Satellite spoke with to Arabsat CEO Khalid Balkheyour; Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) Deputy Director General for Business Development Ksenia Drozdova; Thaicom CCO Nile Suwansiri; and Avanti Communications CEO Kyle Whitehill about their plans, their hopes for SATELLITE 2020, and what they would like to see next as we head into this new decade.
A new year and new decade, and with these milestones, so it is that the World Teleport Association (WTA) published its annual rankings for the Top Teleport Operators of 2019. The annual rankings of companies by revenue and revenue growth are compiled by surveying teleport operators around the world as well as referencing the published results of publicly-held companies.
Yuri Prokhorov, head of Russian satellite communications operator RSCC and Russian Signatory of Intersputnik, spoke to Intersputnik Today about the role of satellite communications in a digital economy, prospects of satellite communications in the 5G era, and innovative industry developments, including the deployment of Express-RV, a multifunctional satellite communications system designed for high elliptical orbits (HEOs).
Middle East has been one of the early adopters of the satellite communications and broadcasting technologies. Rich in Oil&Gas, this region has been using SCPC and later VSAT channels for connecting numerous oil rigs, offshore sites, terrestrial oil transport and storage facilities. Various pipelines have been utilized SCADA applications to accumulate data from various sensors and metes long before evolvement of IoT. Satellite implementations have been later spread across the region for other enterprises, telco and even consumer grade solutions and applications.
AMSTERDAM — Russian Satellite Communications Co. (RSCC) is Russia’s principal satellite operator, but it has been a quiet bystander as the satcom world argues over LEO and MEO constellations, the size of the in-flight-connectivity business and whether GEO networks are on a glide path to irrelevance.
The RSCC and the Romantis group of companies continue to actively promote the capacity of the Russian Express-AMseries satellites to implement satellite communications and digital broadcasting projects in Latin America.
Andrey Kirillovich,director of integration services and projects, RSCC: “[LEO] coverage is continuous and achieved by hundreds or even thousands of satellites. Many of them will, most of the time, cover oceans with no customers there. So the effectiveness of such a system and its advantage over GEO by adding coverage over the poles is questionable. It may be effective, but for regional use, or in certain verticals only.”
SatComRus 2017 in Moscow took on a celebratory feel as Russian satellite operator Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) celebrated its 50th anniversary. However, the underlying theme of the event was how Russian space companies could build for a more prosperous future. It was interesting that SpaceX was mentioned a number of times from different speakers at the event in Moscow two weeks ago as both an inspiration, and an example of a space company setting a new agenda.
On November 4, 2017, RSCC celebrates its 50th anniversary. RSCC handles a satellite constellation of 12 spacecraft, as well as five teleports. Clayton Aldo Vallabhan speaks to RSCC Director General Yuri Prokhorov to learn more about the company’s activities and market vision.
The two companies, RSCC a Russian and Chronosat GmbH a European company, signed an agreement while attending AfricaCom 2017 stipulating an increased use of RSCC’s Express-AM7 satellite capacity by the European company. The agreement is worth $14 million over five years.
The Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) celebrates its 50-year anniversary this year in a key landmark for one of the oldest companies in our sector. Via Satellite recently sat down with RSCC Director General Yuri Prokhorov to talk about the company’s 50-year anniversary as well as RSCC’s place in the evolving satellite world.
Russia Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) has completed compression equipment upgrades at its Shabolovka Technical Center in Moscow. The compression system is part of the RSCC’s own technology platform, enabling the company to provide a one-stop shop service to broadcasters.
