The Future Of Satellite Broadband Communication

Dec 15th 2014 at 2:06 AM

There are many factors which affect the satellite trends in manufacturing, launch, space communication, mobile phone networks, mobile internet, video demand and future of the internet. Some of the factors include the impact of high definition TV on satellite bandwidth demand, global online bandwidth forecasts, new satellite technology, commercialization of space, future of geosynchronous satellites and low orbit satellites in emerging economies and so on.

As per the expectations, the market predicts 15-20% revenue growth in a year on satellites and associated services. As the world is hungry for more data, more than hundred launches are expected in a year of which more than half would be commercial. The trend of satellite TV is also one of the many factors that nurture the need for satellite broadband communication. Also booming is satellite radio along with mobile data connections backing the satellite industry growth.

There have been accidents in the past where cut cable let to approx. 70% loss of data transmission. Cable and cable based data transmissions are highly vulnerable to accident or sabotage. Satellites are more secure. However, no one can deny the chances of its vulnerability at 36,000 miles above the earth's surface - geosynchronous orbit. In addition, the activities of the satellites are also altered by the 24,000 pieces of junk in similar orbits. However, a brief comparison between the pros and cons of satellite based internet can actually provide more weightage to the benefits making satellite the first choice of the internet users.

As per the statistics, over one billion children are alive today and most of them are growing to enjoy the digital connectivity. In fact, children living in the rural areas are expected to reach cities after some years where they will expect the digital technology to serve them. The major innovation in this direction is in the forms of local and regional wireless networks to cover low population areas which also include next-generation mobile 4G.

Despite having many benefits, there is one major issue in the satellite communication – latency. It is actually the delays caused by distance and switching. It hardly matters with web surfing and broadcasts, but it becomes significant when fast interaction is required between users who are 3000 miles away. When you bounce a signal via satellite, this distance actually become over 70,000 and it really matters for many professionals who need to control robot operating instruments. Also, it affects video conferences.

There are many improvements in the field like idirect service to make satellite work for the commercial users.
