The European ICT (Information Communication Technology) market is large and still growing. Industries and Government Organisation are behind in development of digitization. European space business (ESA) is still very much government driven.
Fiber-optic networks are being expanded at full speed in Germany. New network operators are entering the market because existing network operators, such as Telekom, cannot meet demand. With the introduction of smart city networks, local network infrastructure is becoming all the more important.
Many communication services are inconceivable without mobile networks and will be indispensable in the future to provide new solutions for companies, public authorities and private customers. With the 5G mobile standard, new data applications can be realized and many IOT solutions will be implemented on this technical basis.
The combination of networks is a vital part to ensure communication anytime anywhere. Now Space Networks grow in importance when terrestrial networks fail. For instance in case of disaster or war situations. Satelite Networks support communication, observation and other information about earth. Services like Galileo, GPS are important for navigation services.
