The Road ahead on 5G Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN)
With the latest development from 3GPP to define the standards for Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN), the vision of ubiquitous communication networks including satellite and airborne can become a reality. Satellites from LEO to GEO or airborne base stations (HAPS) can be launched and connected to terrestrial ground stations in a feasible way. Radio technologies like beamforming and 5G numerologies support a reliable connection from mobile devices to stations in high altitude.
In this webinar, experts from Rohde & Schwarz and GateHouse take a closer look at the status of how non-terrestrial networks are treated in the 3GPP standardization, especially in Rel. 17:
What are the technical challenges?
What is the impact of the 3GPP 5G specification work, and how it is anticipated to influence future connectivity?
What is the market potential for 5G NB-IoT NTN solutions?
