      Authors: Gunes Karabulut Kurt;Ángeles Vázquez-Castro;Ejder Bastug;
      Pages: 16 - 17
      Abstract: Humanity shares the need for Internet access. However, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) estimates that only 63 percent of the world's population is connected in 2021. The emerging low Earth orbit (LEO) mega-constellation networks, planned to be composed of thousands of satellites, have the potential to connect all through their global footprint and bridge this ever-existing digital divide. Supported by more cost-effective launch systems and reconfigurable software architectures, the capabilities of new LEO satellites are significantly higher than traditional satellites. Moreover, these mega-constellations can provide services not only to sparsely populated areas but also to urban centers to enable and maintain their economic sustainability. However, the provision of access equality would still require architectural, management, and operational changes.

      Abstract: Digital connectivity has become the foundation of prosperity and an essential need for functioning societies. Despite this dependence, limitation on Internet access remains a prevalent issue, largely hinging on socioeconomic and geographic factors. A promising solution to attain global access equality is based on integrated terrestrial-satellite networks that rely on low Earth orbit (LEO) mega constellations. While the benefits of LEO constellations complement the shortcomings of terrestrial networks, their incorporation impacts the network design, adding complexity and challenges. This article presents a systematic analysis of next generation LEO mega satellite constellations, outlining opportunities by virtue of the many benefits these constellations can provide and highlighting the major challenges. Furthermore, it provides a synopsis of analytic models and underscores modern simulation approaches for next generation mega satellite constellations. This article provides network designers with the necessary insights into satellite network performance.

      Abstract: Low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite plays an indispensable role in the equal access network because of its low latency, large capacity, and seamless global coverage. For such an unprecedented extensive irregular system, stochastic geometry (SG) is a suitable research method. The SG model can not only cope with the increasing network scale, but also accurately analyze and estimate the network's performance. Several standard satellite distribution models and satellite-ground channel models are investigated in this article. System-level metrics such as coverage probability and their intermediates are introduced in the non-technical description. Then the influence of gateway density, and the number and height of satellites on latency and coverage probability is studied. Finally, this article presents the possible challenges and corresponding solutions for the SG-based LEO satellite system analysis.

      Authors: Pietro Cassará;Alberto Gotta;Mario Marchese;Fabio Patrone;
      Pages: 32 - 36
      Abstract: Mega-LEO satellite constellations are becoming a concrete reality. Companies such as SpaceX, Virgin Orbit, and OneWeb have already started launching hundreds of LEO satellites and are turning their services on. Even if the aim of such LEO satellite constellations is just, for now, to offer worldwide Internet access equality, their deployment proves their feasibility and suggests usefulness for further purposes. In this article, we shed some light on the possible integration of the in-network computing paradigm in mega-LEO satellite constellations. Terrestrial and/or non-terrestrial nodes can benefit from offloading the computing to an orbital edge (OE) platform reachable through the satellite constellation, exploiting its fast and distributed computational capability. In this context, a preliminary analysis highlights that task offloading strategies can lead to performance improvements that open up novel challenges in the design and setup of OE platforms.

      Authors: Marius Feldmann;Juan A. Fraire;Felix Walter;Scott C. Burleigh;
      Pages: 38 - 44
      Abstract: Several billion people currently lack reliable access to the Internet and thus to a tremendous source of knowledge. In this article, we describe a field-tested communication approach combining CubeSat platforms and delay-tolerant networking (DTN) solutions to provide asynchronous connectivity to populations and regions that are underserved by the Internet. The resulting class of networks is known as ring road networks (RRNs), a networking approach that is built on technology developed for the construction of a solar system Internet. The necessary self-sufficiency of DTN nodes enables network access to be deployed incrementally at low cost, supporting communities that cannot be profitably served by Internet satellite constellations. We present the RRN architecture and evaluate the expected performance by means of simulations. Based on the latter, we discuss µD3TN: a lightweight and open source DTN protocol stack for RRNs and other DTN classes. µD3TN has been flight-tested in ESA's OPS-SAT in low Earth orbit during December 2020 and May 2021. This work discusses the experiment results as we validated the RRN approach in concrete application use cases. The reported outcomes motivate a new application domain.

      Abstract: Technologies and solutions for mobile networks continuously evolve with new features bringing important improvements in terms of e.g., performance, coverage, and operational efficiency. At the same time, they may imply new challenges, some of them are addressed by the articles selected for this issue of the Mobile Communications and Networks series, including: the coexistence between a cell-free system with the existing cellular system; the increased signaling delay for the control plane procedures when satellites are integrated in radio access networks; how to guarantee transparency, monitorability and accountability in case of resource and infrastructure sharing; and information security in the context of integrated sensing and communication.

      Authors: Taehyung Kim;Hyunsoo Kim;Sooyong Choi;Daesik Hong;
      Pages: 46 - 51
      Abstract: The cell-free system has recently been investigated as a way to achieve uniform communication performance over the 5G cellular system. However, deploying cell-free systems in commercial mobile networks is a challenging task. One major bottleneck is the need to install access points (APs) on a large scale. APs will be gradually introduced into the mobile system and will need to be compatible with the existing cellular system. As a solution, we propose a transitional system architecture for beyond 5G, where the cell-free system and the legacy cellular system coexist. We call the proposed system a cell-free and legacy coexistence network (CLCN). In this article, the discussion focuses on technical challenges, design considerations, and practical CLCN system layouts. Simulations confirm that the gradual installation of APs in legacy cellular systems can reduce the performance gap between users and improve the average spectral efficiency of the system. The results show that CLCN can provide users uniformly high performance, which has long been a challenge for cellular systems.

  • BEAT: Blockchain-Enabled Accountable and Transparent Network Sharing in 6G

      Authors: Tooba Faisal;Mischa Dohler;Simone Mangiante;Diego R. Lopez;
      Pages: 52 - 56
      Abstract: Infrastructure sharing is a widely discussed and implemented approach and is successfully adopted in telecommunications networks today. In practice, it is implemented through prior negotiated service level agreements (SLAs) between the parties involved. However, it is recognized that these agreements are difficult to negotiate, monitor, and enforce. For future 6G networks, resource and infrastructure sharing is expected to play an even greater role. It will be a crucial technique for reducing over-all infrastructure costs and increasing operational efficiencies for operators. More efficient SLA mechanisms are thus crucial to the success of future networks. In this work, we present BEAT, an automated, transparent, and accountable end-to-end architecture for network sharing based on blockchain and smart contracts. This work focuses on a particular type of blockchain, permissioned distributed ledger, due to its permissioned nature allowing for industry-compliant SLAs with stringent governance. Our architecture can be implemented with minimal hardware changes and with minimal overheads.

  • Space Mobile Networks: Satellite as Core and Access Networks for B5G

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Joonwoo Kim;Jaewook Lee;Haneul Ko;Taeyun Kim;Sangheon Pack;
      Pages: 58 - 64
      Abstract: Satellite communications are perceived as a key enabling technology in 5G and beyond due to their global coverage and network resilience. However, conventional space-terrestrial integrated network approaches cannot avoid long propagation delays, and thus an excessively increased signaling delay for the control plane procedures (e.g., session establishment and handover) is expected. To address this issue, we introduce a novel space mobile network (SMN) architecture in which satellites act on core networks (CNs) and radio access networks (RANs) by provisioning RAN/ CN network functions. Based on the use of SMN, we devised persistent tunnel-based session establishment and cluster-based handover procedures to further reduce the session establishment and handover times, respectively. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed session establishment and handover procedures can reduce the completion times by 7.8-33.2 percent and 19.7-53.7 percent, respectively, compared to the conventional approaches.

      Abstract: Integrated sensing and communication (ISAC) has recently emerged as a candidate 6G technology, aiming to unify the two key operations of the future network in a spectrum/energy/cost-efficient way. ISAC systems communicate and sense for targets using a common waveform, a common hardware platform, and ultimately the same network infrastructure. Nevertheless, the inclusion of information signaling in the probing waveform for target sensing raises challenges from the perspective of information security. At the same time, the sensing capability incorporated in ISAC transmission offers unique opportunities to design secure ISAC techniques. This overview article discusses these unique challenges and opportunities for the next generation of ISAC networks. We first briefly discuss the fundamentals of waveform design for sensing and communication. Then we detail the challenges and contradictory objectives involved in securing ISAC transmission, along with state-of-the-art approaches to ensure security. We then identify the new opportunity of using the sensing capability to obtain knowledge target information as an enabling approach against the known weak-nesses of PHY security. Finally, we illustrate some low-cost secure ISAC architectures, followed by a series of open research topics. This family of sensing-aided secure ISAC techniques brings new insight on providing information security, with an eye on robust and hardware-constrained designs tailored for low-cost ISAC devices.
