Alaskans rely on satellite connectivity to power their businesses, schools, healthcare facilities, and government infrastructure. This reliance is even more critical during the pandemic as video conferencing and remote transactions are often necessary.
Join us on December 10th, at 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. to learn what’s next for Alaska when it comes to next generation satellites, like Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, and other developing technology.
You’ll hear from Greg Chapados, President & COO of GCI; Jimmy Sipes, Senior Technical Advisor, GCI; and special guest Christine O’Connor, Executive Director, Alaska Telecommunications Association.
During this live presentation you will learn the difference between a LEO, MEO, and GEO satellites and why those differences matter. You’ll also learn what Alaska businesses can expect to see from satellite telecommunications providers in the near future. And you’ll gain industry perspective on how these technologies combine with others – like fiber – to provide the best experience for Alaska businesses and mission driven organizations. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask the panelists questions.
