Absolutely brilliant
Absolutely brilliant. Focusing the power of the signal with lasers should mean better speeds for less power, and maybe better security, at least within the sat network, as the narrow beam might be harder to tap into, no?

Re: LeoSat deadline
I'm sure that part of the reason for the 3 year time delay is all of the red tape. I'm sure LeoSat would launch tomorrow if they could.

@afwriter I'm sure they will have competition. All kinds of privately funded firms are now looking into space.

Re: LeoSat deadline
@freehe yes, that is a rather fast turanaround. Perhaps they are mindful of the adage that work expands to fill the time allotted. If you set a deadline, you are forced to move.

@mhhf1ve yes, human litter is no longer confined to our own planet. Quite a lot of stuff left up there.

Re: Ramifications?
There's room for more satellites in orbit.. but space junk is an issue. There was even a recent test of a "harpoon" device to try to clear up some of the junk in orbit....

We have to make sure we retain the sense of power no matter what--it is easier said than done--but we have to be relentness.

LeoSat deadline
It seems that LeoSat has an aggressive timeline to have its first launch in 2022. I am curious when these dates are set do they consider external variables such as funding, red tape, and regulatory approvals?

It's best to set dates that are set further out and launch products that were implemented earlier than expected, versus settting dates that have to be extended or have initiatives scraped.

Re: Beaming Down
@Commisio44354, "Consumer protections are not keeping pace with the adoption of smart home devices, says Scott Samuelsen, director of UCI's Advanced Power and Energy Program, which ran the project.

Samuelsen: "The market is out of control with respect to regulation (of devices). We are in a free-for-all."

Thanks for sharing. That is my concern. Smart devices need to be regulated. If consumer protections will not include smart devices and technology, the industry needs to develop security monitoring devices to help protect consumers for devices in the home, at work, and mobile devices that use smart apps or technology such as laptops, smart phones, tablets, iPads, etc.

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
