Abstract

Eutelsat plays key role in the provision of mobile services over geosynchronous satellites. Starting with narrowband services for land transports, through broadband maritime service until the most recent IP and multimedia services on board high speed means of transport (trains and airplanes), Eutelsat is present in this market for several years, as services provider or just supplying capacity. This paper gives a technical overview, from the Eutelsat’s point of view, of the evolution the mobility via satellite is having. The references are to the existing services in Ku and those planned to be deployed in Ka band.
