—Next-generation satellite networks are expected to provide a variety of applications with diverse performance requirements, which will call for the development of adaptive routing procedures supporting different levels of services. In this paper, we propose traffic class dependent (TCD) routing, which has the potential to differentiate between traffic(More)
Provision of broadband services is raising increasing challenges, particularly in operating environments requiring wireless access. In this context an emerging solution based on aerial platforms is attracting increasing amounts of research effort. This concept combines some of the best characteristics of terrestrial and satellite communication systems, and(More)
This paper introduces a rapidly deployable wireless network based on Low Altitude Platforms and portable land units to support disaster-relief activities, and to extend capacity during temporary mass events. The system integrates an amalgam of radio technologies such as LTE, WLAN and TETRA to provide heterogeneous communications in the deployment location.(More)
