The broadband satellite networking articles on this site cover internet services using Low Earth Orbit (LEO), Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). and Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites. Satellite technology and methodologies for creating new services over satellite are covered in detail.
Satellite Ground Stations are the core of any satellite-based internet service, relying heavily on RF technology, the link layer of satellite communications. Understanding this technology will help you build highly reliable, optimized, interference-free, and profitable satellite Internet services. A shift in satellite ground station design is happening. These virtual ground stations, based on new cloud-based satellite technologies, provide flexibility and cost savings for satellite and network operators.
