Following a successful launch in February, Rohde & Schwarz continues its program with the second free virtual satellite and space technology event. The company will present industry experts who will take a closer look at the next steps for non-terrestrial networks and 5G / IOT satellites.
Rohde & Schwarz has announced its second day of the satellite industry. Starting on May 24, 2022, at 15:00 CET, the event will give participants the opportunity to meet virtually with industry partners and leading experts. The emerging market for non-terrestrial networks (NTN) for high-speed Internet data, data connections and globally accessible communications services is seen by many experts as the next destroyer of both satellite communications and wireless communications businesses. In the second session of the Satellite Industry Days series, Rohde & Schwarz will take a closer look at the promises and capabilities of this new technology and discuss the technical challenges and requirements for successfully implementing non-cellular communications services.
Experts from Rohde & Schwarz, GateHouse Satcom A / S, University of the Bundeswehr Munich, SES Networks and Technology Vision Consulting will talk about:
- What is being done to build large stellar networks of low Earth orbit satellites (LEOs) to facilitate new 5G / IOT satellite services?
- How are regulators like 3GPP developing standards to enable new ubiquitous communication services?
- Which business cases will benefit the most from the new services offered?
- What are the implementation strategies and technology choices of the satellite operators of LEO and MEO?
The day will end with a panel discussion with all experts.
“Since the beginning of 3GPP, the vision for ubiquitous communications has included the use of satellite or air network components. In the short history, we have seen tremendous developments in the satellite and aerospace community, as well as in the global requirements for wireless communication. With 3GPP Release 17, the vision of ubiquitous communications networks, including satellite and air, can become a reality. 5G New Radio’s global radio access technology allows NTN connectivity. Immersed in some of NTN’s technical challenges, the event will give an idea of how to use the deployment of NTN-enabled devices and networks, “said Rainer Schulfaut, Wireless Technology Manager, Rohde & Schwarz.
“We are closely following the rapidly evolving satellite market and welcome the opportunity to discuss with experts and industry partners appropriate responses to the most challenging technical developments. The days of the Rohde & Schwarz satellite industry provide an excellent setting for fostering exchange, discussion and mutual learning in this regard, ”added Dr. Thomas Nikolai, Vice President of Aerospace and Defense Testing at Rohde & Schwarz.
