Part 1: Mastering the challenges of new space satellite constellations
Part 2: Taking next steps on non-terrestrial networks and satellite 5G / IOT
Part 3: A look at next generation satellite designs and quantum cryptography
Part 4: Driving the development of high- and very-high throughput satellite designs

More details on set up and speakers will follow accordingly.

Have look at the detailed agenda of Part II now.

Satellite Industry Day - Part 1

Satellite Industry Day – Part II

Taking next steps on non-terrestrial networks and satellite 5G / IOT

The emerging market of Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN) for high rate data internet, data links and globally available communication services is viewed by many experts as the next disruptor to both the satellite communication and wireless communication businesses. In our second session of the Satellite Industry Days series, we will take a closer look at the promises and opportunities of this new technology and, together with partners and experts, discuss the technical challenges and requirements on the road to successfully implement communication services beyond cellular.

Join our event and find out:

  • What is done to build up large constellation networks of low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites to facilitate new satellite 5G/IOT services?
  • How regulatory bodies like 3GPP are developing standards to enable new omnipresent communication services?
  • What business cases will benefit most from the newly available services?
  • What are the deployment strategies and technology choices of the LEO and MEO satellite operators?
  • How chip manufacturers’ technology inventions are driving innovation and standardization?
