Using E-Band for Wideband Satcom: Opportunities and Challenges
The growing volume of data traffic to and from wireless devices calls for high bandwidth to connect users to the internet. Two 5 GHz frequency bands are available in E-Band for commercial very high throughput satellite (VHTS) communication systems. However, adopting these high frequencies makes RF component and subsystem development challenging for the satellite communications (satcom) system as well as the test and measurement (T&M) equipment and setups for working in E-Band.
Analysing the Role of Satellite and Ground Network Infrastructure in the Connected and On-demand World – A Recap
In September 2021, experts from the satellite industry came together to discuss the role of satellite in the future network of networks. The panel covered a wide variety of topics ranging from the integration of satellite into 5G, to developments regarding multi-orbit satellite capabilities, and the vertical integration happening within the satellite operators’ industry.
