Satellite communications (SatComs) have recently entered a period of renewed interest motivated by technological advances and nurtured through private investment and ventures. The present survey aims at capturing the state of the art in SatComs, while highlighting the most promising open research topics. Firstly, the main innovation drivers are motivated, such as new constellation types, on-board processing capabilities, nonterrestrial networks and space-based data collection/processing. Secondly, the most promising applications are described i.e. 5G integration, space communications, Earth observation, aeronautical and maritime tracking and communication. Subsequently, an in-depth literature review is provided across five axes: i) system aspects, ii) air interface, iii) medium access, iv) networking, v) testbeds & prototyping. Finally, a number of future challenges and the respective open research topics are described. [less ▲]

Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) is one of the most promising IoT technology to support the massive machine-type communication (mMTC) scenarios of the fifth generation mobile communication (5G). While the aim of this technology is to provide global coverage to the low-cost IoT devices distributed all over the globe, the vital role of satellites to complement and extend the terrestrial IoT network in remote or under-served areas has been recognized. In the context of having the global IoT networks, low earth (LEO) orbits would be beneficial due to their smaller propagation signal loss, which for the low complexity, low power, and cheap IoT devices is of utmost importance to close the link-budget. However, while this would lessen the problem of large delay and signal loss in the geostationary (GEO) orbit, it would come up with increased Doppler effects. In this paper, we propose an uplink scheduling technique for a LEO satellite-based mMTC NB-IoT system, able to mitigate the level of the differential Doppler down to a value tolerable by the IoT devices. The performance of the proposed strategy is validated through numerical simulations and the achievable data rates of the considered scenario are shown, in order to emphasize the limitations of such systems coming from the presence of a satellite channel.

Internet of things (IoT) over satellite is an attractive system architecture which has been proposed as a key-enabling technology, to extend the coverage in remote areas (e.g. desert, ocean, forest, etc), particularly where a terrestrial network is impossible or impractical to reach. One of the most promising technologies that fit the IoT vision of low-power, wide area networks (LPWAN) is the narrowband IoT (NB-IoT). While low earth orbit (LEO) satellites are favourable because of their lower round trip time (RTT) and lower propagation loss in the communication link, they come up with a significantly increased Doppler shift. In our NB-IoT over LEO satellite architecture, we identify the problem of high differential Doppler among channels of different users on Earth, which leads to the performance degradation of our system. In this paper, we propose a resource allocation approach in order to reduce the high values of differential Doppler under the maximum value supported by the standard itself. [less ▲]
