Organization: ETSI
Publication Date: 1 July 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 22
scope:

The present document aims at clarifying the notion of "integrated" or "hybrid" satellite and terrestrial communication networks for the delivery of FSS, BSS or MSS. These terms are now widely used in regulatory bodies, research communities as well as among business stakeholders. It provides a general view on systems combining a satellite communication component with another communication component which may be useful in the context of future networks including Future Internet.

"Integrated Terrestrial and Satellite networks" or "Hybrid Terrestrial and Satellite networks" refers to a general definition of networks combining one or more satellite communication system(s) and one or more terrestrial wireless or wireline communication system(s).

In the present document:

• Firstly, definitions and classification of scenarios combining satellite networks a well as terrestrial networks are proposed.

• Secondly, the rationale for combining both types of component is recalled.

• Thirdly, network scenarios of combined satellite/terrestrial components are listed and described in light of targeted services, architecture and characteristics in terms of level of interactions, operational dependencies and respective capabilities between the network components.

- Note that detailed payload and system architectures are not described in the present document. It refers to existing or planned solutions and standards or future research areas.

• Fourthly, network scenarios of combined satellite/satellite components are described.

• Last, introduction to "systems of systems" combining satellite communication with other satellite application systems are presented.
