Satellite Capacity Pricing Index, 3rd EditionNorthern Sky Research
NSR’s Satellite Capacity Pricing Index, 3rd Edition (Q3 2017) addresses the critical question: how much does satellite capacity really cost? With detailed pricing information gathered from both global and regional satellite operators, as well as Service Providers, NSR’s Satellite Capacity Pricing Index, 3rd Edition (Q3 2017) offers a comprehensive & unbiased understanding of why satellite capacity pricing is evolving as it is, and where it may go in the future.
The satellite industry is at an inflexion point, with operators adopting managed service business models and service providers looking to consolidate assets to curb capacity cost and build economies of scale. Technological innovation continues to drive higher throughput from existing capacity, while the accelerating addition of HTS has started to sound the death knell for traditional data markets. With this dynamic and with shorter contract terms, capacity pricing is the single most important data point in a crowded market. NSR’s Satellite Capacity Pricing Index, 3rd Edition (SCPI3) analyzes this price influenced inflexion point by modelling market dynamics through inter-dependence between various supply and demand factors, and answer questions such as:
How has capacity pricing evolved over the last year, and what will be the forecast for the future? As well, which regions will feel the greatest impact from HTS pricing?
- How has capacity pricing evolved over the last year, and what will be the forecast for the future? As well, which regions will feel the greatest impact from HTS pricing?
- What are the pricing differences between DTH, Distribution, Mobility, Enterprise Data, Trunking, and how do major geographical regions impact the base price?
- How can operators compete with the “race to the bottom” pricing strategy and maintain margin?
- If all capacity is not created equal, then how to differentiate price in accordance with the Quality of Service (QoS) obtained?
- What are the perspectives from the value chain (satellite operators, service providers and financial institutions) on the impact of pricing towards top-line market strategy?
- How pricing, is not absolute, and with the input of 13 factors, does pricing vary according to various application types, regions, and QoS?
