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:
