How about This:
Satellite communication system employing a combination of time division multiplexing and non-orthogonal pseudorandom noise codes and time slots
I. FIELD OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to cellular telephone systems. More specifically, the present invention relates to new and improved systems and methods for communicating information in mobile cellular telephone systems or satellite mobile telephone systems employing spread spectrum communication signals
The communication system may be conceptually sub-divided into a plurality of segments 1, 2, 3 and 4. Segment 1 is referred to herein as a space segment, segment 2 as a user segment, segment 3 as a ground (terrestrial) segment, and segment 4 as a terrestrial system infrastructure segment; e.g., a telephone infrastructure.
Hughes has a patent they are working on to bring VoIP to satellite communication..
Hughes is working on this:
An approach provides a satellite air interface to efficiently support communication with a terrestrial network. One or more packets associated with a data communication session are received from a terrestrial network configured to provide cellular communications. A frame representing the packet for transmission is generated over a satellite link to a user terminal. Signaling information for the transmission of the packet over the terrestrial network is modified or eliminated for transmission over the satellite link.
1. A method comprising: receiving one or more packets associated with a data communication session from a terrestrial network configured to provide cellular communications; and generating a frame representing the packet for transmission over a satellite link to a user terminal, wherein signaling information for the transmission of the packet over the terrestrial network is modified or eliminated for transmission over the satellite link.
2. A method according to claim 1, wherein the data communication session provides one of a telephony service, a paging service, a messaging service, or broadband data service.
3. A method according to claim 1, wherein the data communication session is a Voice over Internet Protocol session.
4. A method according to claim 1, wherein the VoIP session is established according to a session initiation protocol (SIP).
In layman terms with a little paste and post:
Mobile VoIP or simply mVoIP is an extension of mobility to a Voice over IP network. Two types of communication are generally supported: cordless for short range or campus communications where all base stations are linked into the same LAN, and wider area communications using 3G/4G protocols
Mobile VoIP, like all VoIP, relies on SIP — the standard used by most VoIP services, and now being implemented on mobile handsets and smartphones and an increasing number of cordless phones
Mobile VoIP will require a compromise between economy and mobility. For example, voice over Wi-Fi offers potentially free service but is only available within the coverage area of a single Wi-Fi access point. Cordless protocols offer excellent voice support and even support base station handoff, but require all base stations to communicate on one LAN as the handoff protocol is generally not supported by carriers or most devices.
With GSAT satellite and ground level access points, the hand off between them imo could create problems for cellular companies.
Think Skype on your mobile I-phone. GSAT could potentially create a wide area network across the country driven by wifi.
somebody sells and somebody buys.....with huge shares trading hands in the last week, the float should be getting pretty tight. Will be interesting to see institutional filings for the second quarter.
Gsat is listed 6th largest company to be added. To the Russell 2000
Besides the 31 mil shares to be bought other funds buying we could see 40-50 mil buys coming after next week announcement
Would like to see sati device announcement follow the Russell announcement
get the facts and call'
"This is a Tweet via Globalstar's new Sat-Fi unit. Call SPS at 561-245-2503 to learn more about this great device."
He's doing the beta test and will answer your questions.
Looks like Clear Talk ("NTCH") could be first gsat licenseed customer. Strong supportive comments in the proceeding.
"While it is premature for the details of arrangements with independent carriers to be worked out, Globalstar has shown a willingness to work with carriers like NTCH to maximize the use of the new band through cooperative agreements."
Plenty of contracts to be announced.
we need a great news release from clne on new contracts to get the cockroach shorts out of here..
another one bites the dust.....LCSWMA’s CNG project includes 14 new Peterbilt transfer trucks with Cummins-Westport ISX 12L CNG engines, costing around $2.2 million total. LCSWMA purchased the fleet in 2013 and transitioned them into operation last month. The trucks transfer waste from LCSWMA’s Transfer Station in Lancaster to its waste-to-energy facilities in Bainbridge and Harrisburg, as well as to its landfill in Conestoga. Previously, LCSWMA used diesel-powered trucks that consumed an average of 140,000 gallons of diesel fuel annually.
LCSWMA contracted with Newport Beach, CA-based Clean Energy Fuels to design and construct the CNG fueling stations, as well as provide multi-year operations and maintenance services for the system. Currently, LCSWMA’s price to customers for CNG is $2.23 per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE), which is about 45% lower than the average diesel gallon price on the East Coast.
just keep adding....
Russell 2000 Reconstitution....
Russell 2000 Additions
We currently anticipate 147 additions to the Russell 2000.
Many of the companies featured in the tables below are highly illiquid. As we approach the Reconstitution, the trading volumes of these companies will increase, thus partially reducing the magnitude of the comparison against the estimated passive index flows.

Sounds like interference issues addressed:
System and Method for Providing an Improved Terrestrial Subsystem for Use in Mobile Satellite Systems
A system or method is disclosed which employs filters on a satellite whose bandwidth is varied by ground command to restrict interference experienced by a satellite as an auxiliary terrestrial component (ATC) system is increased to a multiplicity of cities and markets. Thus there is provided a novel method and system which optimizes overall MSS and ATC traffic.
It is therefore an object of this invention to provide a satellite terrestrial communication system and method of operation that facilitates effective spectrum assignment, usage sharing and/or reuse.
A further object of this invention is to provide a satellite terrestrial communication system and method of operation thereof that minimizes interference between the satellite and terrestrial systems.
