The purpose of the CABSAT DVB-RCS Satellite Communications Symposium 2006 is to bring together both existing and potential users, operators and service providers, managers and policy makers, equipment manufactures and non-profit organizations in an environment where all can find solutions and create business opportunities with the open standard for satellite communications, ETSI DVB-RCS.

The aim is to present uses and solutions based on the DVB-RCS technology, discuss market and technological trends and the advantages and possibilities offered by the DVB-RCS standard, and to help define the future evolution of the technology so that it can meet the new challenges that will arise.

The event will feature key speakers from the industry, standards development organizations, industry forums, and satellite operators:
