All the tasks as prescribed were completed. More specifically, the study provided a detailed overview of current usage trends of communications technologies; an analysis of service delivery solutions by terrestrial providers; critically reviewed 11 promising scenarios for satellite-terrestrial integration for service delivery and selected 5 for further analysis; analysed and benchmarked selected integrated approaches.
Community feedback on the scenarios was collected at the launch event of the joint European Technology Platform NetWorld2020 in October 2013.
Some of the key findings of the study have been presented at ASMS/SPSC 2014 in the special session “Internet-Centric Networking for Satellite/Terrestrial Integrated Systems” (Advanced Topics in Service Delivery Over Integrated Satellite Terrestrial Networks by Kapovits, Adam; Covaci, Stefan; Siris, Vasilios A.; Ververidis, Christopher N.; Guta, Maria; and Business Interoperability Framework for Integrated Terrestrial Satellite Networks by Aliu, Osianoh Glenn; Watts, Simon; Kapovits, Adam)
The Executive Summary and the Final Report of the project are provided to ESTEC and are available on request.
The Final Presentation will be given at ESTEC, on 14th January 2015.
