Rohde & Schwarz has announced its second Satellite Industry Day. Starting on May 24, 2022, 3 p.m. CET, the event will enable participants to virtually meet with industry partners and leading experts. 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 the second session of the Satellite Industry Days series, Rohde & Schwarz will take a closer look at the promises and opportunities of this new technology and discuss the technical challenges and requirements on the road to successfully implement communication services beyond cellular.
Experts from Rohde & Schwarz, GateHouse Satcom A/S, University der Bundeswehr Munich, SES Networks and Technology Vision Consulting will talk about:
- 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?
The day will end with a panel discussion with all experts.
“From the beginning of 3GPP, the vision of ubiquitous communications included the usage of satellite or airborne based network components. In the short history we saw a tremendous development in the satellite and aerospace community as well as in worldwide wireless communication requirements. With 3GPP Release 17, the vision of ubiquitous communication networks including satellite and airborne can become a reality. The global radio access technology 5G new radio enables NTN connectivity. Diving into some technical challenges of NTN, the event will give insights how to leverage the deployment of NTN capable devices and networks,” commented Reiner Stuhlfauth, Technology Manager Wireless, Rohde & Schwarz.
“We are monitoring the fast-paced satellite market closely and welcome the opportunity to discuss with experts and partners from the industry suitable answers to the most challenging technical developments. The Rohde & Schwarz Satellite Industry Days provide an excellent set-up to foster exchange, discussion and mutual learning in this regard”, added Dr. Thomas Nicolay, vice president Aerospace & Defense Test at Rohde & Schwarz.
