However, today large energy corporations are looking to get the very most of out of their communications services by going for managed networks that can provide tailored, end-to-end services that the energy company can utterly rely upon. These networks may incorporate a range of technologies that can suit a company’s diverse communications needs so, in some cases, satellite service provid[...]

Over coming years, Low Earth orbit (LEO) is going to become a good deal busier, and the ambition of the satellite industry to facilitate affordable communications services anywhere on the planet could be edging closer to reality. Three major new players in the realm of LEO have emerged in recent months, and all of them promise to deliver cost-effective, low latency, high-speed connectivity wherever it is required from a disaster zone, to a remote oil and gas drilling site, to a community located within a mountain range. Two giants of the industry, Greg Wyler and Elon Musk, have announced that they will be venturing into LEO through separat[...]

It sounds like science fiction – a radio that is aware of its surroundings, the amount of available bandwidth, the time of day, even of other radios that are in their vicinity – but this type of intelligent radio exists today. It is known as cognitive radio. Cognitive radio is built upon the foundation of Software Defined Radio or SDR. SDR is a radio communications system where the components have been actually implemented into the radio by means of software in an embedded system meaning that they are very easy to upgrade and allow the radio to use a variety of different waveforms offering true flexibility in the field. The concept of SDR [...]
