Current Trends in Communication and Information Technologies
This book highlights the most important research areas in Information and Communication Technologies as well as research in fields of telecommunication system characteristics at the physical level, deep discussion of telecommunication traffic and its performance indicators, studying of information systems technological parameters, review of public and special applications of information technologies. The book includes strictly selected results of the most interesting scientific research presented at the 10th International Conference “Infocommunications – Present and Future” (IPF’2020) that was held in Odesa, Ukraine. The respective chapters share in-depth and extended results in these areas with a view to resolving practically relevant and challenging issues including: 1. research of telecommunication system characteristics at the physical level: the discussion of various aspects of the signal transmission quality indicators analysis for solving practically important issues in telecommunication systems; 2. research of telecommunication traffic and its performance indicators: the significant aspects of research for forecasting of services characteristics of telecommunication systems; 3.research of information systems technological parameters: the discission of some effective technological solutions that can be used for the implementation of novel systems; 4. research of public and special applications of information technologies: the discussion of the various aspects of scientific and educational applications, etc. These results can be used in the implementation of novel systems and to promote the exchange of information in e-societies. Given its scope, the book offers a valuable resource for scientists, lecturers, specialists working at enterprises, graduate and undergraduate students who engage with problems in Information and Communication Technologies as well as Radio Electronics.
The Internet of Things Space Infrastructure. Current State and Development Prospects
This chapter presents an overview of possibilities for existing Satellite Communication Systems utilization to provide Internet of Things Services. It is shown that existing Satellite Communication Systems provide traffic transmission for Internet of Things Systems with Cloud Architecture. The propositions on possibility of Fog and Edge computing implementation in Satellite Communication Systems are proposed. The ways for Low-Earth Orbit and Geostationary Orbit Satellite Communication Systems modernization for Fog and Edge computing implementation for the Internet of Things Systems are presented. To increase the efficiency of IoT data processing and the reliability of Internet of Things Data Storage, it is proposed to generate an Orbital Cloud Data Storage in Geostationary Orbit, which consists of several Geostationary Orbit Satellites - Cloud Computing Data Centers. Methods for access provision to the Orbital Cloud Data Storage using Geostationary Orbit High-Throughput Satellites and satellites from the structure of Low-Earth Orbit Satellite Communication Systems are proposed. The issues of interaction between Orbital Cloud Data Storage and ground-based Cloud Data Processing and Storage Infrastructure are briefly considered. The orbital slots in Geostationary Orbit are proposed for location of Geostationary Orbit Satellites - Cloud Computing Data Centers.
