We’ve been reminded once again, and through a very tragic situation, that satellite communications are of paramount importance to the Asian region. The earthquake in Nepal that measured 7.8 on the Richter scale and caused thousands of deaths and untold damage served as another stark reminder that communications are the lynchpin of this modern world. As you read this, teams are working with satellite systems and services in the affected areas in the recovery effort, and teams from various organisations, NGOs and government agencies were on the scene within hours. The power of satellite, both in terms of communications and imagery, have helped [...]

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 [...]

The communications system and service providers highlighted in this Directory have at least one important trait in common: They are all involved in rolling out satellite-based solutions that are literally transforming the way people and organisations communicate worldwide. This fact was brought into sharper focus recently by the Global VSAT Forum’s (GVF’s) High Throughput Satellite Roundtable, where the industry – and many of its leading customers — characterised the satellite industry’s latest impact as follows: Right now, dozens of new High Throughput Satellites have begun providing service in every major world region, with dozens m[...]
