Satellite Backhaul – The Other Side of the Coin

Tuesday 15:00 and Wednesday 15:00

In this presentation, the author looks into paradigms present in satellite backhauling of today and tries to dissect them. Already balancing on the edge of financial viability, most satellite backhauling solutions are inefficient not because of real technical or financial limitations, but because of the decades old paradigms from satellite communications that they clumsily try to adapt for backhauling.
