WAKEFIELD, Mass.: The HAPS Alliance today announced that it will lead the Power Hour presentation and panel, Unlocking the Economic Potential of the Stratosphere with HAPS, at the GSMA’s Mobile World Congress 2024 (MWC24) at the Fira Gran Via Convention Center in Barcelona. The panel session will take place on Thursday, February 29, 2024, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in Hall 8, Theatre 6.

"Among the various Non-Terrestrial Network (NTN) communications layers, the significance of HAPS-based services cannot be overlooked. HAPS technology is poised to be a game-changer, unlocking market potential and presenting a cost-effective, flexible solution for mobile network operators (MNOs). From connecting the unconnected to monitoring wildfires and disaster response, HAPS is set to redefine possibilities,” said Ken Riordan, President of the HAPS Alliance and Principal Architect, Nokia Federal Solutions. “We invite all that are eager to explore the forward-thinking technology of HAPS to the panel to learn about the collaborative ecosystem shaping the true power of the stratosphere."

Panel representatives from AALTO HAPS, Aerostar, GSMA, Nokia and Stratospheric Platforms will discuss how HAPS will be the next great opportunity for MNOs, filling a capability gap between terrestrial networks and satellites at 18 to 50 km above the Earth. Attendees will learn more about the potential of HAPS solutions to cost-effectively connect the 2.6 billion unconnected people — almost half of humanity — around the globe.

The panel discussion will feature industry-leading speakers and HAPS Alliance members including:

  • Moderator:
    • Tim Hatt, Head of Research and Consulting, GSMA Intelligence
  • Panelists
    • Ken Riordan, President of the HAPS Alliance and Principal Architect, Nokia Federal Solutions
