In this reunion holiday, due to some reasons can not go home, to call friends and relatives to greet, is also very sweet. But what if you happen to be at sea or in the wild where there is no cell phone signal and are in urgent need of contact with the outside world? Now, with the help of communication satellites in the sky, some mobile phones can also make direct calls to satellite phones.

The reporter learned that, as a special terminal equipment, in the past, satellite phones were generally used in special situations such as emergency rescue. Now, with the gradual popularization of satellite telephone equipment, the tariff has also dropped.

Bo Xiaotang, deputy general manager of the Marketing Department of China Telecom Satellite Communications Branch: now the threshold has been lowered to 10 yuan a month to enable the use of satellite communications function, and it is 9 yuan a minute to make a phone call without a voice package.

According to experts, the latest mobile phone direct-connected satellite communication service in China uses the Tiantong-1 satellite mobile communication system independently developed and built in China. At present, the system already has three satellites operating in geosynchronous orbit, supporting the use of individual terminals.

According to industry insiders, in the next step, with the progress of technology, satellite communication functions will be integrated into more smartphones.

High-throughput satellite market with access to both air and sea is growing rapidly.

In addition to emergency rescue, the application scene of satellite communication is constantly expanding. Aircraft, ships and other vehicles that did not carry the network in the past are also gradually connected to the satellite network. Behind this, high-throughput satellites with larger bandwidth and higher speed are playing an important role.

At present, some domestic airlines have launched the corresponding pilot, through the installation of equipment transformation, aircraft can be connected to high-throughput satellites, in the course of flight to use a 100-megabyte speed network. At present, there are only more than 200 domestic aircraft with this kind of satellite communication service capability, and there is huge room for market growth in the future.

Zhang Fang, deputy director of the Special work Office of China Aviation equipment Group: CAAC currently has more than 4300 registered aircraft. according to the forecast of Comac, the fleet of CAAC will exceed 10, 000 by 2041. And these 10, 000 aircraft will be our potential customers in the future.

The aircraft used the Asia-Pacific 6D high-throughput satellite, which was launched in 2020. Together with other satellites, a high-throughput broadband satellite communication system covering the whole world can be formed.

Li Jie, president of Asia-Pacific Satellite Broadband Communications Co., Ltd.: each green dot represents a ship or an aircraft, with almost 21000 terminals. In fact, there are receiving and transmitting functions on board, and some people even do some live video broadcast. Shipowners go to related businesses, including some real-time video surveillance, which can all be transmitted back through the network.

Li Jie told reporters that high-throughput satellites with large bandwidth can also further reduce the use cost of users.

Data show that the overall global revenue of the satellite service industry, which is dominated by satellite communications and remote sensing, was US $113 billion in 2022. According to incomplete statistics, at present, the scale of China's satellite communication market is about 80 billion yuan.

Xing Xiao, president of Shanghai Science and Technology Innovation Group Haiwang Capital: everyone has seen the prospect and trend of such an industry. Last year, the financing quota of the entire space track was about 7 billion to 8 billion yuan, to almost more than 10 billion yuan this year. From the quantity alone, we can see that everyone's attention continues to heat up.

According to industry experts, with the scale effect of consumer-grade satellite communication products such as mobile phones, the cost of each link of the industrial chain will continue to reduce.

Liu Yue, vice president of China Telecom Satellite Applied Technology Research Institute: in the past, the application objects were relatively limited, such as emergency, government, ocean, transportation and other scenarios, the size of terminal chips was about hundreds of thousands, up to millions at most. However, if it can be promoted to the level of consumption, it may be on a scale of tens of millions or hundreds of millions, so that the price and cost of terminals and chips can be reduced directly.

In addition, it is generally believed that satellite communication will become an important part of 6G technology in the future.

Liu Yue, vice president of China Telecom Satellite Applied Technology Research Institute: the future 6G is an integrated design. Whether it is satellite network or ground network, unified access technology is adopted and frequency coordination is needed.
