The world-leading global ICT forum

ITU is the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies (ICTs), working with 193 Member States and over 700 private sector organizations to drive ICT innovation. ITU Telecom, part of the ITU, organizes ITU Digital World and ITU Telecom World events on a not-for-profit neutral platform to accelerate ICT innovation for social and economic development through exhibiting solutions, sharing knowledge, and networking.

This year, ITU Telecom will celebrate 50 years of world-class events. As the world’s leading exhibition and forum for the global ICT industry, it will bring together public and private sector representatives to showcase innovative solutions, collaborate, and engage in high-level dialogue on the sector’s significant challenges. In 2021, ITU Digital World will be held digitally from September to December, with a series of high-level Forum debates and Ministerial Roundtables for government, industry leaders, and SMEs to network, examine what’s driving digital transformation, and share expertise and ideas.


Astrocast at ITU Digital World 2021

Advances in satellite technology, changing business models, and growing demand for services make satellites more relevant than ever. An array of options from non-geostationary orbit satellites (NGSO) to geostationary orbit satellites (GSO) in low, medium or geostationary orbits (LEO, MEO, GEO) are evolving to meet needs for commercial services, as well as specialized applications for earth stations in motion, broadcasting, satellite Internet of Things, and providing cost-effective broadband to rural and remote areas.

What are the satellite industry’s vision and distinctive value offer, and how can it be realized? What is the best way for satellite networks to coexist, compete with, or complement existing networks? Beyond connecting the unconnected in underserved areas, what new services will satellites enable?

These and other important questions will be discussed during a virtual panel titled “Space for change: satellites in the service of digital transformation”, which will take place on Wednesday, September 15th at 1.30 pm (CET).

Astrocast is honored to participate in ITU Digital World 2021 and be virtually part of this panel. The discussion will feature Yulia Kulikova, Head of Regulatory Affairs, and other industry experts from Space X, Amazon, Vodafone Group Plc., and KT SAT, among others.
