Re: That's out-of-the-box
I would guess if the multi array antenna system would work as proposed there still would be the practical problem of which areas the radio signal would cover. They would certainly pick and choose the highly populated areas for the best return would be my guess. But in any event they'd have a better head start than Space X and "Samsung I would think.

Re: That's out-of-the-box
Dan, that's right - I thought I heard something about SpaceX.  It appears something truly is materializing then with new satellite use.    Another confirmation for the value of LR and networking/communication industry analysis.

Re: That's out-of-the-box
SpaceX and Samsung also have similar concepts about a new breed of comms satellites kicking around. Don't forget.

Re: That's out-of-the-box
MordyK, that's true.  Many people tried and failed to fly before the Wright Brothers put it together. 

It appears that Dish has studied it - they may just have figured out how to put it together.  Then, if they can develop and price it right, they will open the channels to a new solution.

Re: That's out of the box
True! but i wonder if there's a dynamic BeamForming element with little extra overhead that can be utilized in the tech to create an iridium like satellite network with the costs of standard cell service.

Re: That's out of the box
DHagar, Like I said in another reply on this post: everything new is usually old but the timing and conditions were off.

Re: That's out of the box
True! but the times, technology and cost structures have changed enough that it may make sense. I obviously don't have the details on the concept to be in a position one way or the other.

WHen you look at most successful ideas you don't see anything that wasn't suggested at an earlier time in one shape or another, its just that the market and other conditions weren't right.

Re: That's out of the box
Yeah, but remember it is simply a proposal at the moment. I mean people been trying to do similar stuff with drones, balloons, airships etc. etc. Nothing seems to have really stuck yet.

Re: That's out of the box
Dan, thanks!  Yes, I am being a little facetious in that after you establish the satellite network, as you describe, I can only imagine the "fun" we would have in having the FCC trying to sort out and establish the new rules!  It could be a rubric cube for them, don't you think?

Re: That's out of the box
There's just a *few* technical issues that need to be handled before they need to think Net Neutrality :-)
