Auf dem Gebiet der Nachrichtensatelliten hat sich eine ungewöhnlich steile Entwicklung vollzogen. Erst 15 Jahre ist es her, seitdem der er ste geostationäre Nachrichtensatellit mit einer maximalen Kapazität von damals nur 240 Fernsprechkanälen gestartet wurde, und inzwischen ist die Technik so weit fortgeschritten, daß der in Bälde den Betrieb aufnehmende neueste Typ, INTELSAT V, bereits 12 000 Fernsprechsignale und 2 Fernsehprogramme gleichzeitig übertragen kann. In Zukunft werden Nachrichtensatelliten mit noch größerer Leistung, scharf bündelnden Antennen, hoher Ausrichtgenauigkeit und flexiblen Möglichkeiten des Vielfachzugriffs die Erde umkreisen, wobei der Trend zu großen, auf Plattformen montierten Relaisstationen mit riesigen Solargeneratoren geht. Kommunikationssatelliten sind aber nicht nur zur Ubertragung von Fern sprech- und Fernsehsignalen geeignet, sondern werden immer stärker für die Daten- und Textkommunikation, für die elektronische Briefübermitt lung und für Konferenzschaltungen verwendet werden. Zu den vielfälti gen Einsatzfällen gehören auch die mobilen Dienste, die Verbindungen zu Schiffen und Flugzeugen und auch zwischen Satelliten umfassen. Darüber hinaus gibt es Satelliten zur Navigation und Erderkundung, ja selbst zur Gewinnung und elektrischen Ubertragung von Sonnenenergie zur Erde sind Satelliten im Gespräch.

This is a practical introduction to the key computing concepts of networks and communications, suitable for a first year undergraduate or industrial course. It provides the foundational knowledge on which to build a fully developed understanding of modern communications methodologies, techniques and standards. It will also be a useful professional reference companion.; The book begins with a general introduction to data communications and the options commonly open to the system designer. It then provides overviews of the key areas in which design decisions must be made: communication media; interface standards; network architectures; modems and multiplexers; network topologies, switching and access control; local area networks; wide-area networks; performance; software issues; security; and implementation.; As a second edition of an established text the book has been thoroughly revised and improved but retains the strengths of the first edition in its clear and well- illustrated exposition. It includes current developments in standards and architecture including ATM, B-ISDN, SNMP, TCP/IP, and other state-of-the- art features of the computer communications world.; In its first edition the book was an authoritative textbook and personal reference for industry. In this new edition it should be even more essential for all with a need for an accessible modern technical introduction to computer communications and networks. Suitable for a practically orientated computer science course at degree level or for an introductory industrial course.

Very small aperture terminals (VSATs) enable satellite transmission to provide data, voice and video communications directly to the user's premises. Networks using VSATs can be set up or changed rapidly in response to varying demands and as such look set to figure highly in the communications of the next century. In this long-awaited book, Everett collects 28 major contributions to describe the key technology, representative leading systems, technical issues and also consider the economics and regulations.
