The Hybrid Solution for true seamlessness and scalability of future connectivity
In the future, all objects will be connected and connectivity will be essential and available everywhere.
Therefore connectivity service has to be sustainable on any kind of network regardless of what they are.
Service provider should operate different networks in an efficient way, and this is where hybrid solution steps in and plays a key role.
KT SAT’s hybrid solution is not simple switchover but complete integration of multiple networks which provides stable network connections and true seamlessness without any glitch.
Not just satellite communication and 5G network, the solution can be applied to any type of satellite and terrestrial network such as LEO, GEO, Mobile network, Fiber, Microwave, Wi-Fi and etc.
It can also be applied in many creative ways where customers need connectivity. Let’s take a look at some use cases of hybrid solution.
First, it’s the mobile service. Mobile network operator can enhance service quality especially for rural areas where maintenance is difficult as using hybrid solution.
They are also able to optimize usage of backup connectivity through cost-effective hybrid redundancy.
Second, KT SAT’s hybrid solution can guarantee stable connectivity for mission critical application even when in crisis.
It supports your business continuity without any blink or glitch in communication.
Third, High quality mobility communication also be supported as hybrid solution selects the most optimal connectivity available wherever the vessel/vehicle is.
Users can enjoy the best experience in their mobility communication.
We live in a connected world- Everyone, and everything is connected to the network.
Users want seamless connectivity no matter what the mean are. Therefore, it is a key for service provider to integrate different networks as a whole.
Try to experience KT SAT’s state-of-the-art satellite technology with Hybrid solution.
The meaning of Korea’s launch vehicle “NURI”Korea will launch a truly homemade rocket “NURI” on 21st, October. If first and second launch- which is scheduled on 19th of May, 2022- are both successfully concluded, South Korea will be titled as global top 7 country in space industry which has its own launch technology. The homemade launch system is about 47meters long and it is the third-stage rocket. Nuri’s performance will be completely verified if it puts satellites into orbit at an altitude of 700km. Expected time for finishing this mission is just 16 minutes in total. A successful Nuri launch would be a major milestone for South Korea’s space program. Because South Korea has relied on other countries in order to put satellites into orbit even though it has such an advanced technology in satellite industry. However, the country is able to step forward to dream of space development as launching satellites and spaceships based on its own technology. [Home-grown Launch Vehicle NURI, Source:KARI] South Korea has been seeking to develop a homegrown space launch vehicle since 2010. During the period of 11 years from then, space technology of Korea has tremendously developed with those endeavors. Unlike its predecessor, Naro rocket was built by largely relying on Russian technology in 2013. [NURI rocket will be launched on 21th, Oct. Source: KARI] But, Nuri rocket is completely made up of components and systems entirely developed in Korea. As looking back the whole developing time of Nuri, there were a lot of setbacks. The country show us an outstanding advance in space technology by overcoming many challenges and eventually making Nuri with only its own technologies. Especially, Korean government will start to implement the revised “Space development Act” from November. We expect that successful launch of Nuri will be the first meaningful step in space development. Upon that, we hope South Korea will be the best leader of space industry in the world.
Footprint of South Korea’s Satellite Technology with Kumsan TeleportKumsan Satellite Service Center, the first satellite ground station of South Korea, was established in 1970. Since then, it has been providing high-quality teleport services as the largest teleport in the Asia-Pacific region with more than 40 antennas. It also access to more than 17 international satellites in orbit from 57ºE to 180ºE supporting end-to-end data transmission and IP access service around the world. With its 5 operational satellites covering more than 60% of the land area on earth, it also provides data, broadcasting, maritime service [Opening ceremony of Kumsan satellite teleport in 1970] [People were celebrating Kumsan teleport's establishment] There is a nationally important technical resource – KSN-C01 (also called as Kumsan 27.4m C-band Antenna) which shares 50 years of history with Kumsan teleport. This Antenna started its service with the opening of Kumsan teleport since 1970. With the help of Intelsat No. 3 Satellite in the skies over the Pacific Ocean, a communication network of 136 circuits was constructed among the seven countries located along the coast of the Pacific Ocean like America, Hong Kong, Taiwan, etc. [KSN-C01 Antenna in 1970] [KSN-C01 Anntena Present] This played an important role in the development of the international communication of South Korea. It also has transmitted contents of various domestic and international events, sports games, and others such as Seoul Olympic in 1988, World Cup in 2002 and many other historical events With Its great technical and scientific value, the antenna registered as a national’s cultural property in 2009 and also as an Important Scientific Technology Asset in 2020. Although over 50 years passed after its manufacture, it is the oldest antenna which is still in service in South Korea.
