In this configuration, the roundtrip delay will be double that of the mesh configuration. However the advantage is that smaller Earth stations can be used.

In mesh configuration, Earth stations communicate with each other directly; in star configuration, the Earth stations communicate via a central station. 5 SATELLITE RADIO ITU allocated specific frequency bands for satellite communications.
Because of the low cost, it is used extensively in the telephone network, in PBX, and for LANs. Coaxial cable supports higher data rates compared to twisted pair and is used in cable TV, LANs, and the telephone network. Optical fiber supports very large data rates and is now the preferred medium for LANs and the telephone networks. The main attraction of radio as the transmission medium is its support for mobility. Furthermore, installation and maintenance of radio systems is easy because there is no need to dig below ground.
ADPCM is used in telephone networks as well as radio systems such as DECT. 8kbps to get good quality speech. 2 Vocoding A radically different method of coding speech signals was proposed by H. Dudley in 1939. He named his coder vocoder, a term derived from VOice CODER. 4 is used.
