The recent growth of consumer satellite communications, like Starlink from SpaceX, has brought greater connectivity to remote locations. Many mission critical organizations rely on Land Mobile Radio for this coverage – so will Satellite comms make LMR redundant?
Sometimes, the nature of the terrain, the remoteness of the location or the sheer expanse of the area is too much even for the solid coverage of radio networks. In such cases, satellite communications can be an option, but with the myriad of satellite technologies out there, it can be hard to know where to start. In this lesson of the Tait Radio Academy, we take a closer look at the pros and cons of satellite.
