Samsung wants an internet in space
Samsung is mulling over a ‘space internet’ network consisting of 4,600 micro-satellites that could act as backhaul for terrestrial cellular networks and bring low-cost internet to “everyone in the world”.
The proposal is contained in an academic research paper by president of Samsung R&D America Farooq Khan.
The idea follows Google, which has separate proposals for satellite and balloon-based internet – SpaceX, OneWeb and Internet.org.
Samsung’s own proposal is partly driven by fears that initiatives to solve mobile data traffic growth won’t be cost effective.
“By the year 2028, both cellular and wi-fi will be carrying data traffic in excess of one zetabyte/ month,” Khan said.
