Strategic Scenarios and Feasibility Studies

  • R. E. Sheriff

An analysis of future satellite service requirements has been performed in (1), where end-user services were categorised and some potential teleservices were described. In order to facilitate a smooth migration from current mobile satellite services (MSS) to future satellite personal communication services (S-PCS), the next generation of satellite communication networks will have to provide teleservices available in current second-generation mobile systems, as well as providing services compatible with those of the fixed networks.
