Advanced Antenna Architectures and RF Semiconductors at the Intersection of SATCOM and 5G Technologies
The demand for high speed, broadband data connectivity continues unabated, and we are seeing revolutionary changes in fixed wired networks such as HFC and Fiber along with terrestrial wireless networks—from 4G to 5G—in order to meet this demand. As such, it was only a matter of time before we saw the same transformation in satellite networks. The ever increasing need for high-speed mobile Internet services, rural/remote Internet access and ubiquitous IoT connectivity are driving significant growth in the VSAT and SATCOM markets.
The Myth of Network Speed: Speed in networks is actually difficult to measure
Speed is the most common network metric, yet it does not actually exist as a well-defined scalar. Speed is a statistic whose value and significance changes depending how it is observed. Network problems are most often characterized as speed problems, but finding the cause requires an understanding of the ways speed can be measured and what they mean.
Commercial and Military Innovation at a Crossroads for Radar and Wireless Networking Applications
From the modern battlefield to commercial wireless infrastructure, bandwidth demands are growing exponentially. In the aerospace and defense (A&D) market, these demands are being driven by the need for low-latency communication and enhanced situational awareness and responsiveness among warfighters deployed across ground, sea and air domains, serviced by sophisticated radar systems deployed in manned and unmanned vehicles, operations centers and outposts.
