Connectivity: From Top to Bottom

Satellite has long been used in conjunction with mobile networks although it has been limited to supplying backhaul for the access networks typically in rural and remote areas, wherein other forms of backhaul are often difficult to provide. The satellite industry on the other hand has long desired to use the satellites not just for backhaul but also for access networks

A Dynamic Cell-Less Architecture for Ultra-Dense Wireless Networks

This article proposes the use of a dynamically changing cell-less wireless network
architecture that copes with the high complexity of a fully-centralized cell-less architecture
in an ultra-dense network deployment scenario. It also discuses the
use of artificial intelligence (AI)-based methods to form clusters of APs efficiently
as well as non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) to satisfy the massive wireless
connectivity requirement.
