What is Satellite Communication?

Satellite communication is the use of man-made earth satellites as relay stations to transmit radio waves, so as to achieve communication between two or more earth stations. Usually, a satellite network solution consists of a number of remote terminals of varying types (flyaway, portable, maritime, fixed), a Network Operation Center or Hub and the satellite bandwidth.


Communication requirements and channels have evolved drastically in the age of globalization and it has become imperative to enhance connectivity between organizations, world-wide teams, headquarters and employees on the field. Radio communications play an essential role in this, especially in public safety, fleet operations and mining applications. Most radio networks use line of sight propagation or have fixed repeater stations. Radio over satellite can extend each of these networks and provide essential connectivity between headquarters and field teams during natural disasters and mission-critical applications.
