By Nick Flaherty

AccelerComm has launched IP for a layer 1 5G modem for power efficient low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite communications.

The LEOphy physical layer IP block has been tailored to deliver maximum flexibility and reliability to enable more efficient 5G satellite communications, with the lowest error rates while also consuming less power than competing products. As a result, it ensures a high-reliability link without having to resort to higher coding rates and low modulation schemes. This maximises spectral efficiency, particularly for satellites where channel capacity is highly constrained, compared to terrestrial networks.

 Constellations of 5G satellites are being deployed to play a vital role in completing the technology and connectivity ecosystem needed for automation and IoT adoption, and are being used to address critical connectivity challenges, such as data speed and coverage limitations for several important applications such as remote sensing, video surveillance, UAVs and drones, geo-positioning, backhaul solutions, and general data connectivity. 

 “Traditionally satellites have not been well suited to delivering real-time communications applications due to low data-rates, costs and long latencies. The result being that they have only been suitable to serve specific niche applications,” said Rob Barnes, Chief Commercial Officer at AccelerComm. “However, the potential of new 5G applications has seen a revolution in thinking in this market. The use of AccelerComm technology now enables satellite networks to efficiently deliver high-quality and high-performance 5G services economically and on a global basis.”
