Satellite Communication – Nomor Research GmbH

In certain places neither wired communication infrastructure nor wireless cellular infrastructure may be available. For example in remote areas wired lines and power lines for supplying cellular base stations may not be available. Then satellite communication can be employed.

Also long distance wired lines (e.g. between continents) may be too expensive or infeasible. And long distance wireless line-of-sight communication may be prevented by the earth’s curvature. Then again satellite communication can be used. Satellite communication can be used for television, telephone, radio, internet, and military applications.

Satellite communication can be used directly between end devices or between the entities of terrestrial communication networks. In satellite communication satellites create communication channels between transmitters and receivers at different locations on Earth. The satellites relay the information from the terrestrial transmitters to the receivers.

Satellite communication may complement wireless cellular communication. 3GPP is currently studying the use of satellites for its 5G radio technologies.

Nomor provides a variety of services for satellite communication including standardization services, consultancy services and patent work.
