Satellite communication (SatCom) is an essential component of next-generation wireless communication to achieve a goal of ubiquitous connectivity on globe. The outage performance of SatCom link connecting to a network is more critical in infrastructure-deficient remote areas. Joined collaborative research work between KAUST and Korea University looked at the outage probability and symbol error rate over SatCom downlink channels when the users are randomly located in single beam and multibeam areas.
