Antenna Technology for Advanced Connectivity Networks



With the introduction of new LEO and MEO constellations and the growing capacity and coverage of GEO satellites, multiple layers of satellite beams will come into being, introducing different coverage, transmission power, frequency bands, and other variables. To support these of heterogeneous satellite networks and to best utilize the available resources from multiple satellites and constellations, innovative antenna technologies are now emerging. This session will explore the importance of understanding new passive and active antenna technology, the role of both the satellite operators and antenna manufacturers and how both groups can work together to meet the demands of evolving networks.
