Satellite technology has an important role in driving the growth momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) and unlocking the promise of connected devices worldwide. Satellites serves as a key enabler for IoT applications across industries and across geographical borders.
In this capacity building activity we will cover technologies of GEO (geostationary) satellites in C-, Ku- and Ka-band, new LEO (low earth orbit) or HEO (highly elliptical orbit) constellations, as well as the new developments in nanosatellites.
As controlling the cost per device is of essence for the success of IoT applications, we will cover the sustainability issue of satellite-based IoT applications.
