Welcome to SCNL
The Satellite Communications and Networking Laboratory (SCNL) is located at the Department of Telecommunications, Electronic, Electric and Naval Engineering (DITEN) of the University of Genova (UNIGE).
The main scientific reference of the research carried out in the SCNL concerns:
- protocols and advanced control techniques for satellite, space and wireless communications networks
- network simulation and emulations design
- development and advanced Quality of Service Oriented network design.
The laboratory owns: complex high speed satellite and terrestrial components, a hardware emulator for satellite and wireless ad-hoc networks, powerful processors for software production, simulators for telecommunications networks.
|"An "artificial satellite" at the correct
distance from the earth would make one revolution every 24 hours; i.e.,
it would remain stationary above the same spot and would be within
optical range of nearly half the earth's surface. Three repeater
stations, 120 degrees apart in the correct orbit, could give television
and microwave coverage to the entire planet."
