Abstract: The growing demand for bandwidth and rapidly evolving technology has forced the network providers to innovate most effective and feasible solutions to meet the current demand as well as future influx due to technological advancements. The new satellites in LEO, MEO & GEO are adopting to Ka to provide communication infrastructure. In this paper we put forward vertical Rain Rate, Liquid Water Content, Fall Velocity as well as Path Integrated Attenuation up to 4.4 kms in the atmosphere with respective rain intensity which is vital to any communication link design.
