Large scale, low-flying Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellations are shaking up the status quo of mobile broadband connectivity. New companies are flooding the skies with hundreds to thousands of satellites able to deliver large amounts of bandwidth at low latency with affordable services and plug-and-play equipment.

Being new comes with its challenges. First responders need to integrate these new systems into their current operations, test and verify equipment and services, and establish operational and business reliability. Established high orbit geosynchronous earth orbit (GEO) operators are known quantities, having been in business for decades working with the first responder community, albeit at a price point that has been challenging at the past for anything other than the largest agencies.

A panel of LEO and GEO operators will discuss how they provide services to the first responder community, what makes them unique, and how they may work together – or not.
