Addressing LEO Sat Network Issues: Why Do Remote Desktops and Video Conferencing Apps Frequently Disconnect?
The current Starlink satellite constellation, being at about 10% of its planned capacity, leads to frequent internet service interruptions, affecting applications like remote desktops and video conferencing. These issues will gradually be resolved as SpaceX expands its satellite network. While we wait for at least 5000 more LEO Sat satellites to launch, you can resolve intermittent LEO Sat service issues with remote desktops, video conferencing, and gaming by adding multiple LEO Sat antennas, and or 5G, and the MDS Blender.

⭐ Best method to connect multiple Starlink Maritime Antennas to a single network

The MDS Blender will allow you to connect up to 4 high speed “sources” (LEO Sat and/or 5G) in any combination. The MDS Blender will Speed Bond up to 4 internet sources, to a maximum speed of 1Gbps, and provide your network with enterprise-grade connectivity, with true instant failover, automatically shifting network traffic to the rest of your working internet sources. This hybrid enterprise grade connectivity is the secret sauce that allows high bandwidth applications to work properly. For example, remote desktops, like AnyDesk and TeamViewer work properly, without constant interruptions, as do video conferencing applications like Teams, Zoom, and WhatsApp. Check out the MDS Blender here: More information about MDS Blender

⭐ Why do Remote desktops like AnyDesk, Splashtop, and TeamViewer stop working several times per hour on Starlink

The LEO Sat constellation of Satellites is projected to have 30,000-40,000 satellites for full high-speed internet coverage of our entire planet. The current number of LEO Sat satellites in orbit, and use is less than 4,000. So we are only at about 10% coverage at this time, for this reason, there are usually multiple times per hour when the LEO Sat internet stops working. When there is no LEO Sat satellite in view, you will not have internet service. When the internet stops working, even for a split second, the remote desktops and Video conferencing apps stop working. Those are the LEO Sat “network issues” that can only be resolved by launching thousands more satellites. (Currently, SpaceX is launching satellites about once a week, with 22 satellites on board for each launch. Those satellites only have a working life of about 5 years before they must be replaced…. Based on those factors, the math appears to tell us that it will be many years before we have full coverage from LEO Sat) Check out the MDS Blender here: More information about MDS Blender
