TYSONS CORNER, VA March 23, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — ExecutiveBiz reported Friday on communications executives attending Satellite 2015 who discussed tackling mobility services deployment in the military using convergence tools designed to increase interoperability and greater flexibility.
Among those who participated in the panel discussion was Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch, senior vice president for government policy and strategy at Inmarsat, who said Wednesday that striving for “ubiquity” would help achieve “anytime, anyplace, anyway” connectivity.
Co-panelist Rick Lober, vice president and general manager for defense and intelligence systems at Hughes Network Systems, suggested a managed services approach, saying, “Buy megabits, not megahertz.”
The panel at the conference’s Government Mobility Solutions session also included Jim Chambers, vice president of engineering at XStar LLC, and the Defense Information Systems Agency’s Shaum Mittal, chief of the ComSatCom technical support branch of the satcom division, infrastructure directorate.
