Satellite communications exhibit a tremendous growth due to three main elements: interactivity, coverage and bandwidth asymmetry. The paper explores some of the current trends in the development of next generation satellite systems by analyzing several aspects: from orbital tracks to technology, from services to business opportunities. Both positive and negative experiences are considered in order to understand fully the most probable future scenarios in the satellite area.
