A unique low-cost 100% 1+1 Twoobii satellite solution Mining operations are often at remote locations far beyond the reach of conventional technologies such as fibre, LTE or 4G/5G. Then a special Twoobii solution is the onlyoption for operations that demand 100% communication uptime, cost within budget...

Emerging Trends in the Satellite Industry! While the characteristics of launch vehicles vary widely, the ultimate goal is always to move payload into space. Satellite launch costs are therefore a fundamental input block in terms of driving the satellite business case and determining service price points. SpaceX...

Reflecting On 2021 As the sun sets on another year we reflect on past opportunities, challenges, and achievements. We think about the changing nature of life, the need to appreciate every moment and the strength gained from a helping hand and a friendly smile. For Q-KON...

Satellites Are Dead! Long Live Satellites! EngineerIT Editor Hans van de Groenendaal led the industry panel discussion on the current satellite industry status and future expectations. Q-KON appreciated the opportunity to participate and share our views with this respected forum. Today’s smart satellite networks, such as Twoobii-on-Flex service incorporates advanced...

Learn about why Satellite is the new cost-effective solution for retail In this economic climate, no retailer can afford to have any network downtime. Until recently the go to solution for point-of-sale systems was the easy to deploy, LTE data access.  The time has come to look at the...

Why Uncapped is short-term Why does this happen? Why? It is like UNCAPPED is a sort of broadband drug for Telco’s. It is irresistible, with lots of short-term happiness, with an inevitable end linked to dire consequences. UNCAPPED is also a model where just the Provider...

5G Health Risk Perspective The recent deployment of 5G mobile networks has created much debate on the possible health risks. Given that 5G relates more to a “network-of-networks architecture” and that mobile deployments are only one element of evolving 5G networks, the health debate should probably...

Satellite VS LTE As Backup Services Physics and network technology fundamentals make satellite services, the most effective, highest spec back-up services. Yet while this is true, then why is satellite not used as a back-up by every network engineer and specified by every customer request. To...

Satellite Services for a 5G future The ITU definition of the 5G networks-of-networks ecosystem outlines the key elements as enhanced mobile broadband, massive machine and ultra-reliable low-latency (<1msec) communication. In this article we consider the role of current and future satellite technologies and how it will...

What is coming for Satellite? Faster, more bandwidth, lower cost – these general ICT drivers are equally applied in the satellite industry. Already using GEO HTS networks we are reaching 3G price points and with planned MEO networks will introduce satellite point-to-point links at fibre pricings and with lower...
