Webinar: 5G Non-terrestrial networks - technology update

In this webinar you will learn more about the evolution in satellites

From the beginning, 3GPPs vision of ubiquitous communication included the usage of satellite or airborne based network components. Early trials and implementations never took off successfully due to commercial reasons.

In the short history we saw a tremendous development in the satellite and aerospace community as well as in worldwide wireless communication requirements. With the new work item under development in 3GPP, 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, we will take a closer look at the current status of how non-terrestrial networks are treated in the 3GPP standardization, especially in Rel. 17: what the technical challenges are, how the spectrum allocation look like, and how to leverage the deployment of NTN capable devices and networks.


Reiner Stuhlfauth: Technology Manager Wireless

Reiner Stuhlfauth is a Technology Manager Wireless, working in the technology management team of Rohde & Schwarz in Munich. He is responsible for teaching and promoting mobile communication technologies, especially cellular standards like: GSM, (E)GPRS, UMTS, HSPA, LTE, LTE-Advanced and 5G NR, and non-cellular technologies such as WLAN and Bluetooth. He is also involved in a number of projects concerning 5G, the next mobile communication technology.

In his role, he links development and sales organizations to coordinate implementation of technical features into R&S instruments and interactively discusses new requirements with Rohde & Schwarz customers. Reiner is one of a group of authors within Rohde & Schwarz who have published a technology book on 5G NR: “5G New Radio - Fundamentals, procedures, testing aspects”.
