Abstract

The explosion of mobile applications, wireless data traffic and their increasing integration in many aspects of everyday life has raised the need of deploying mobile networks that can support exponentially increasing wireless data traffic. In this paper, we present a Hybrid Satellite Terrestrial network, which achieves higher data rate and lower power consumption in comparison with the current LTE and LTE-Advanced cellular architectures. Furthermore, we present a feasibility study of the proposed architecture, in terms of its compliance with the technical specifications in the current standards.
