Urban Dense Networks


Growing demand for mobile broadband Mobile broadband usage has surged exponentially in the last few years. Some reports indicate that the global mobile data traffic more than doubled between 2015 and 2016. By 2022, the total mobile traffic is predicted to cross 70 exabytes (1 exa is sixth power of 1000(1018)) ) [1]. The rapid

LTE is by far the most popular wireless technology. It is deployed in more than 150 countries across the globe. Consumer base has increased manifold as it (LTE) was the technology to truly provide mobile broadband on the go.The strong support LTE has received from Service providers and OEMs is due to the unique advantages

The Broadband Conundrum


We live in an era of data deluge. We upload pictures of a birthday party to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram simultaneously. If bandwidth permits, we also like to livestream the party to those who couldn’t attend. Mobile apps belonging to taxi aggregators like Ola and Uber gather data corresponding to thousands of rides everyday. When

What shape should be my satellite?


If you are a first-timer in satellite design and looking for information about how to choose and start design of your satellite structure, then you are at the right place! A satellite structural platform is a subsystem of the satellite which provides a mechanical base to hold its other subsystems. A satellite platform is expected

How do Satellites survive Hot and Cold Orbit Environments?


Satellites orbiting within few hundred kilometers from the Earth’s surface are multiplying every day due to the rise in demand for communication, navigation and monitoring technologies. Typical applications of these so called Low – Earth Orbit(LEO) satellites include, air , sea and road traffic monitoring, remote sensing, communication services, atmospheric research and weather forecasting. In

The Art of Satellite Constellation Design: What You Need to Know


There is no defined common process for constellation design since it is a process that varies significantly with the mission objectives. During constellation design, the preferred solutions are those that satisfy the mission requirements while minimizing the overall cost of realizing the mission. As a consequence, it is desired that a minimum number of satellites
