The Origin and Development of Satellite Networks

Auckalnd, North Island, New Zealand

Abstract: Satellite networking has significant advantages in providing the global coverage. Generally, there are three kinds of satellites according to their orbit height including Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) Satellites, Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) Satellites, and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellites. Among them, the LEO satellites have the advantage of low latency, and the LEO constellation has become one of the frontier research topics in recent years, such as Starlink, OneWeb, Hongyan, and so on. These novel plans promise affordable solutions to provide the global broadband access, Internet of Things (IoT) services, and mobile communication services. The technologies above can be applied in the context of sparsely populated areas such as oceans and deserts, and it can also be utilized in the disaster areas whenever communication infrastructures are being destroyed. The conventional LEO constellation usually relies on the ground station to achieve the global networking. However, this requires global ground station deployment, which is usually constrained by many factors. Therefore, networking over inter-satellite links becomes a promising solution. To achieve this objective, several technical challenges need to be tackled. Especially the amount of the networked satellites can be scaled up to tens of thousands within a routing domain, and the dynamics of the inter-satellite topology and the dynamics among satellites and ground stations exacerbate the challenges. Moreover, how to achieve the flexible scheduling in the network to serve unevenly distributed services is also an emerging challenge. In this talk, I will introduce the historical and background knowledge of satellite communication and networking as well as some use cases and their associated solutions. Moreover, I will present some of my current research works, with an introduction to our research group at the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications.

As one of the most proficient and esteemed student branches of IEEE, we are very excited to let you all know that the much anticipated IEEE Day of this year will be held on October 24, 2022. This year Ratul Khan will join us to conduct a lucrative session. Anyone of us who has learned from "Onnorokom Pathshala" has elevated him to a position of reverence. He has spent his entire life attempting to give quality in his teaching of any subject, from the trivial to the important, to anyone and everyone. He is currently employed as a researcher for Onnorokom Biggyanbaksho's research and development division. An interactive session with the speaker to extract answers to our curiosities. Here the speaker will take his time to talk to us, share his stories with us and give us walkthroughs on topics we may want under his expertise. IEEE Day is an annual event that celebrates the first time in history when engineers worldwide gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884. One of IEEE Day’s objectives is to show the ways IEEE members, in local communities, join together to collaborate on ideas that leverage technology for a better tomorrow.

How can artificial intelligence help fight breast cancer? To respond to this question, the IEEE WIE ENETCOM in collaboration with MTC FMSF Club(Microsoft club active in the Faculty of Medicine of Sfax) organized an event named "Pinky and Brain " (Pinky refers to breast cancer and Brain refers to artificial intelligence). It will be held on 23 October 2022 at the youth house of Sakiet Ezzit Sfax. We will start with an introduction to breast cancer, how to predict it and so many other chapters related to awareness. Then, we will offer to all attendees a workshop about"AI in health" in order to explain the relationship between breast cancer and artificial intelligence presented by a specialist in IA.
