SANSA co-organized a special track session on Hybrid Terrestrial Satellite Networking and Services at ASMS/SPSC 2016
During last week took place the 8th Advanced Satellite Multimedia Systems Conference and the 14th Signal Processing for Space Communications Workshop (ASMS/SPSC2016) in Palma de Mallorca. This is a renowned conference in both industry and scientific communities which address the recent advances in satellite communications.
In this framework, SANSA co-organized jointly with VITAL project, a Special Track devoted to Hybrid Terrestrial Satellite Networking and Services. It was split in two sessions, one dedicated to SANSA activities, chaired by Constantinos Papadias (AIT), and the other to VITAL, chaired by Tinku Rasheed (Create-net). For SANSA, Georgios Ziaragkas (AVANTI), José Núñez (CTTC), Constantinos Papadias (AIT) , and Ashkan Kalantari (University of Luxembourg), presented respectively: the SANSA use cases, scenarios and KPIs; the SANSA network architecture; antenna-assisted interference mitigation techniques; and resource allocation techniques. Therefore, a good overview of the major part of SANSA activities was given. The session terminated with a round table which counted also with the participation of Ana Pérez (CTTC), the SANSA Project Coordinator.
The session successfully concluded with an attendance of around 30 people and with very fruitful discussions on the domain of terrestrial–satellite integration.
