As more and more consumers choose to cut the cord and switch to internet-based entertainment options, broadcasters are faced with capital allocation decisions.

Apart from user behavior, there are also other triggers which are precipitating transitions from a predominantly satellite-based distribution model.

  • Regulatory Factors: As 5G services dictate re-allocations in the C-brand spectrum from television broadcasters to mobile network operators, it leaves them with a reduced spectrum and a question mark on its future.
  • Operational Factors: International distribution via multi-hop uplink-downlink runs the risk of increased latency.
  • Commercial Factors: Fibre-based distribution is a cheaper option for smaller broadcasters requiring point-to-point access, along with enabling regional customisation of content.

Tata Communications can develop customised satellite replacement solutions with a fully managed service to deliver high-quality compressed video over a hybrid fibre and internet network.
