EdgeSAT objectives are as follows:
EdgeSAT is addressing edge network computing from the satellite perspective. Edge network computing is a widely adopted concept among the terrestrial communication actors. From the perspective of EdgeSAT the challenge is the global alignment of edge computing capabilities for satellite remote terminals in a global uniform network currently being developed in 5G.
Edge networking is a concept that is perceived to offer substantial benefits in a number of scenarios to improve advanced services delivery and is widely pursued by the terrestrial communication community. EdgeSAT’s ambition is to bring to the SatCom industry the benefits of edge networking concepts and capabilities and support SatCom to reap them.
EdgeSAT provides a reference architecture for SatCom enabled edge nodes, as well as specification and design for the SatCom enabled edge nodes.
In the core of EdgeSAT is the establishment of a SatCom enabled edge node reference architecture.
The simplified system architecture is as follows:
The above architecture considers the following additional functionalities:
EdgeSAT has a straightforward development plan of consecutive technical tasks focusing on:
Business aspects and value chains form an integral part of the technical tasks.
The EdgeSAT project has started in April 2019, and is currently in its initial phase.
