The MASSIVE project aims to design and develop a Satellite Gateway able to manage a large number of uncoordinated terminals.
The project objectives are in reference to the state-of-the-art protocols and solutions based on the E-SSA protocol. They can be summarized as the following:
The key challenge of the project is being able to design, develop and test in an affordable way the following topics on which the project is focused as an enhancement of already deployed E-SSA protocol:
The satellite gateway developed in the frame of MASSIVE is able to manage data traffic generated by a huge number of uncoordinated terminals, giving the way to systems with a dense geographical distribution of users, which fits with the IoT definition.
The gateway can be interfaced with the existing HUB and management systems developed by MBI so as to make effective tests and demonstrations possible.
This factor, together with the eventual installation of the MASSIVE solution in a real gateway made available by a satellite operator to test the prototype with a real satellite constellation, can easily enable MBI and SPENG to validate the prototype even in a real scenario, thus dramatically compressing the time-to-market to launch a cost-effective, attractive and competitive product, especially if a complete Forward and Return link system is developed.
The architecture of the system to be developed in the project can be derived from an overall and a gateway-focused point of view. The overall physical architecture is the following:
Focusing on the gateway side, the main functionalities and architecture are condensed in the following:
The project activities have been completed with the finalization and acceptance of the validation phase.
