INTELSAT and the digital communications revolution
AbstractThe digital communications revolution may have begun in 1832 with the Morse telegraph, but it is still a significant movement. It should be realized that digital innovations and increasing transmission efficiencies are simply picking up speed with age. This article traces the development of digital communications, examines the continuing relationship between source rate and transmission rate requirements, points to the need for universality of standards and compatible transmission techniques, and describes the role of INTELSAT within the goal of global communications provision.
