Arctic Mobile Communications Architectures


Project description

The Arctic region in many places lacks the Internet connectivity we are used to in urban areas.

This project provides new arctic mobile communications architectures based on today’s and tomorrow’s technologies. Local mobile networks tied together by tailored backhaul solutions are at the heart of these architectures, while sea and fiber cables, microwave links, HF, and high-speed or mobile satellite communications constitute their key components.
