Engineering Forum: Meeting Demand for Greater Bandwidth and Throughput

Date of Event:

Track:
Engineering Forum




Bandwidth in this context means “bits per second”, or more likely “Gbps”. Delivering high data rates to end users has remained a challenge, owing to limitations imposed by raw bandwidth available from the satellite and the ability of modulation and coding to efficiently employ this basic commodity in orbit. Now that DVB-S2 is well established in both the broadcasting and broadband communications fields of SATCOM, we are at a point where one might ask, “What comes next?” How will commercial and government power users approach and ultimately reach the goal of a Gbps to the remote and mobile “desktop?” Can satellite services keep pace with terrestrial innovations from forward-thinking companies like Google and Facebook? We ask these innovators and experts in the relevant technologies to provide their insights into satellite transmission and bandwidth efficiently in the future.
