Satellite Integrated Networks for Ubiquitous Broadband Communications

  • Ifiok Otung (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Wireless and satellite communication systems must continually evolve and develop capabilities to handle the coming data transmission deluge arising from smart homes and cities, driverless vehicles, connectivity for countless numbers of sensors and functional assets (the so called Internet of Things (IoT)), broadband services for billions of mobile and fixed communication devices, and a future multisensory Internet that adds tactile and olfactory functionalities to the audio-visual capabilities of today's multimedia Internet.
This seminar will explore some of the challenges and enabling technologies in using a fixed-amount natural resource such as is the radio spectrum to continue to support the reliable transmission of an exponentially growing data volume. The niche role of satellites will be emphasised and some of the recent research carried out at the University of South Wales in fade mitigation and bandwidth-efficient modulation will be touched upon. The presentation will include video clips to help visualise satellite orbits and the application of time diversity in live broadcasting.
