The recent broadband satellite systems are based mainly on centralized low-meshed architecture. It predetermines very high traffics concentration. Such structure is not adequate in context of the traffic topology for rural, remote, and difficult areas. This paper presents a novel concept of the space-based cost-effective networking technology of future communications 4G with radically distributed (grid-like), mesh, and scalable all-IP/ATM integrated satellite/mobile/wireless architecture for RRD areas. The proposed architecture based on advanced QoS-oriented multi-functional access control technology to long-delay space medium (MFMAC). This networking technology will allow an effective support and integration of mobile satellite and terrestrial cellular, personal, WLAN, WiFi, WiMax, and other wireless systems of future generations 4G for such RRD territories, as BRIC (Brasilia, Russia, India, and China), Sea and Ocean's Archipelago, North Canada, Alaska, Central and South-East Asia, South America, Africa, Australia, etc.
