WATCH NEXT 👇
The outspoken billionaire, Elon Musk, has definitely made many heads turns, be it SpaceX or even his tweets on cryptocurrency which have sent many cryptocurrency values skyrocketing. Elon Musk is definitely a man with many talents who has been a trendsetter in the field of technology!
The famous entrepreneur has left everyone stunned after the announcement of Starlink 2.0. One of Elon Musk’s main aims is to provide high-speed internet across the globe, with this new, upgraded version.
SpaceX is known as one of the best aerospace companies in the world today. It’s known for its elaborate rocket designs and its advanced technology. Many are unaware of the fact that SpaceX also provides a satellite Internet connection called Starlink., and very soon, Starlink is going to launch version 2.0.
Let us just take you back in time. Starlink was launched by SpaceX in the year 2015. In 2018 they launched the Starlink 0.1 version, which was a successful launch. The SpaceX team was quite pleased with the result and so they decided to move ahead with the project.
In May 2019 they launched Starlink Beta 0.9, which apparently had some drawbacks. In 2022 they are planning to launch Starlink 2.0 and we must say we have definitely got something amazing in store for us!
Version 2.0 will be running on some of the smartest and advanced technological methodologies. Space X is looking into launching a second-generation Starlink Network. Isn’t this great?! The new version will go through many upgrades and the drawbacks in the previous models will definitely not be seen in Starlink 2.0
Version 0.1 was just a head start. According to many experts, it was like a short experiment that did very well. Even though the network availability was concentrated in certain areas, it only made Starlink a successful broadband company.
The main upgrade in Starlink 2.0, that’s highly-anticipated, is its advanced laser link system. Elon Musk has stated that version 2.0 will be significantly more capable. We all are definitely looking forward to Starlink 2.0!
Here are some updates on the new data transfer system.
The new methodology the company will be using is absolutely mind-blowing. This feature makes Starlink a company that is using technology to its utmost limit. SpaceX has always stood out from other aerospace companies.
It has created space rockets that can be used again and it has always come out with a unique creation that has left everyone surprised, not to mention impressed! One of the biggest advantages that satellite internet has over cable networks is that one doesn’t have to get cable connections.
Satellite internet is apparently an eco-friendly option and even more sustainable. A cable network is sometimes not a viable option in remote locations. On the other hand, Starlink 2.0 has every region on the map covered and this makes it an attractive option. Isn’t that cool?
Starlink has to just connect to another satellite to transfer the data to any location around the globe. It doesn’t have to connect to any ground station to receive and transmit data.
Intersatellite communication is the key to the successful transmission of data, and Starlink 2.0 runs on this technique. Laser links will help the satellites connect to each other. Lasers will also be used for better connectivity. This advanced feature makes it stand out from other broadband connections.
By the beginning of 2022, Elon Musk plans to launch at least 1500 satellites that will enable the process of data transmission easily as the whole methodology of Starlink is based on satellite connectivity.
Let’s talk about speed!
The initial versions did provide good speed to the users but many are expecting major changes in Starlink 2.0. Elon Musk has stated that Starlink 2.0 is going to bring e-band frequency at about 70-90 gigahertz. Wow, this is just great! We are definitely gonna see a huge rise in the number of Starlink users!
