Satellite Services

Overview

The world's population relies increasingly on satellite services for many different purposes, including voice and data communication, radio and television broadcast, distribution and contribution links, location services, maritime and aeronautical communications.

ETSI's activities concerning satellite communications include satellite communication services and applications (including mobile and broadcasting), earth stations and earth station equipment, especially the radio frequency interfaces and network and/or user interfaces and protocols implemented in earth stations and satellite systems.
