Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) deliver essential two-way communication services to mobile workers in distant locations where no other form of communication is available. MSS is a vital area for the satellite communication industry. This technological segment is currently garnering a lot of attention from major satellite operators such as Ericsson, Solaris Mobile, and Eutelsat, to name a few. MSS has the potential to bring in huge improvements to satellite communications, as these services are provided by a satellite system which communicates with portable terminals on the ground, attached either on a ship or vehicle. MSS promises to bring in improved voice and data clarity for enabling enhanced user experience.

As Mobile Satellite Services has evolved to be more accessible in commercial and personal communications, it has now become imperative to understand the full potential of this technology, and how it can considerably improve the day-to-day communication-related experiences. The improved frequency spectrum and the indispensable requirement in key potential markets have created an opportunity to take the power of MSS to the next level.

Mobile Satellite Services delivers video, voice, data, and tracking and monitoring services that are ideal for oil and gas, media and entertainment, mining, military and defense, aviation, and transportation verticals. Although MSS is a mobile-to-mobile feature, it offers voice and data services with a comprehensive coverage of remote locations in the world such as in deserts, in-flight, or when at sea. These services implement communications and network interconnections through satellites between mobile terminals. Moreover, MSS is available to maritime users and land users present at any location that require long distance transportable telephony and immediate infrastructure setup. These services are often communicated over satellite phones that are linked to orbiting satellites instead of terrestrial locations. Depending upon the design of the MSS system, the satellite coverage may comprise the entire globe or only a particular region.

The Mobile Satellite Services market is fast gaining traction which is evident from the acquisitions of Global Trak by ORBCOMM, Hughes by EchoStar, Solaris Mobile by Echo Star, and NetNearU Corporation by ViaSat. Key players such as Ericsson, GlobalStar, Inmarsat, Iridium Communications, ORBCOMM, Echo Star, Intelsat, SingTel, Via Sat, and Telstra offer voice and data services to the end consumers. There are many smaller players such as Ultisat, Hughes, Rig Net, and Light Squared that offer MSS voice and data services at a relatively low cost.

Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) is a satellite-based communication system that offers the services commonly available in a terrestrial mobile network. These services provide voice and data communication services to several users globally. In the last few years, satellites have played a key role in the growth of global communications, media, and technology industries. Currently, satellites are used for a diverse range of applications, including telecommunication, navigation, weather prediction, military intelligence, and space exploration, to name a few.

Today, the commercial satellite service industry has been emerging at a constant pace. Satellite communications support the growth of an organization with unique capabilities, enabling cost-efficient and fast service delivery. Satellites will continue to deliver efficient broadcast services on a global basis that will also serve as a multitude of unique use cases in innovative infrastructure solutions.

Mobile Satellite Services encompasses mobile communication beyond the range restraints of terrestrial-based wireless systems and permits mobile-to-fixed and mobile-to-mobile voice and data communications globally. Technology developments in satellite and aerial designs have overcome many of the restrictions related with providing satellite access to a mobile user. More refined and powerful satellites make mobile voice and data services accessible at a very reasonable cost.

Mobile Satellite Services is estimated to fill the breaches in wireless voice telephony and complement present terrestrial wireless or Public Switched Network (PSN) services, whereas the others compete directly with the existing terrestrial services. MSS services will include voice, low-speed data, fax, paging, high-speed data, and broadcast.

Mobile Satellite Services has taken longer to propagate, mainly due to the lack of connectivity with the devices and network systems. The satellite is a discreet technology that is often unnoticed, particularly in policy making. In order to allow an improved integration in the communications ecosystem, satellites should be more visible and secured.

MarketsandMarkets expects the total Mobile Satellite Services market to grow from $3.45 billion in 2014 to $5.62 billion by 2019 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of10.2% during the forecast period.

The overall size of the Mobile Satellite Services market is the summation of the market size of MSS services.
