Testing the Cisco Router in Orbit
A commercial mobile router
was integrated into the UK-DMC satellite, and has been on orbit with the satellite
for over two years. The talk overviews over a year of successful testing of
the router, along with the developments in extending the Internet to orbit and
building Internet-Protocol-enabled satellite infrastructure that made this router
integration possible (and even easy) in the first place. Possible future steps
are also discussed.
