The IOT SATBACK project aims to design and develop a prototype backhauling solution for future NB-IoT networks.
The project objectives are in reference to the state-of-the-art protocols and solutions. They can be summarized as the following:
The key challenge of the project is being able to design, develop and test in an affordable way the following topics on which the project is focused as a new solution for backhauling NB-IoT networks:
The satellite backhauling solution developed within the framework of IOT SATBACK paves the way for the following benefits and achievements:
With reference to the state-of-the-art protocols and solutions, the main outcomes which characterize the IOT SATBACK solution are the following:
The architecture of the system to be developed in the project can be generally summarized as in the following:
Focusing on the proposed test bed, the main developed blocks are condensed in the following:
KO has been held. Task 1000 (NB-IoT deployment scenarios supported by satellite backhaul), Task 2000 (Requirements for a NB-IoT satellite backhaul testbed) and Task 3000 (Design of a NB-IoT satellite backhaul) are ongoing. The next scheduled milestone is CRR.
