Interplanetary Internet – Next Generation Network For Earth And Space

Interplanetary Internet Logo

Most have already heard of Satellite Internet Services to get access provided through communications satellites. Since decades different providers offering One-Way Terrestrial Return Satellite Internet Systems based on conventional Internet access over the provider for upstream and downstream directly via satellite. Two-Way Satellite Internet Services can send and receive data from a remote terminal via satellite to a hub telecommunications port which then relays data via the terrestrial Internet. The old and actual services are expensive and unsuitable for mobile. Another method is the Internet via satellite phone, but modern models or services only reach data rates of some kbit/s upstream and downstream. This will change with the next generation of the Internet, the Interplanetary Internet. This new network is an expansion of the current Internet into near-earth space. The first developers and companies of the new Internet are Greg Wyler’s OneWeb, Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic. These three competitors have their own plans and solutions to connect the whole world with this new Internet from Space. Future generations will expand this network to other planets and into deep space, this will be the Solar System Internet and the Galactic Internet.
