It will become much easier to interface all the networking equipment to a centralized system if everything is using the same standardized language to communicate.
What do we Mean by Satellite 5G?
Everyone is talking about 5G. It’s going to radically expand the capabilities of cellular wireless connectivity. But the underlying technologies also show promise to revolutionize satellite communications. Learn how a satellite-based 5G architecture will make VSAT a true “plug-and-play” telecom extension that is more responsive with lower operating costs.
VT iDirect and its 5G team members are fundamentally changing how satellite is deployed in order to match 5G infrastructure. Learn about the SaT5G consortium 5G demo at EuCNC2018 – a milestone network demo showcasing satellite and terrestrial 5G integration capabilities.
Two new technology concepts are rewriting how network operators deploy and manage their networks: Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV). The transition to this new technology holds significant implications for satellite communication providers, promising to improve service agility, make complexity manageable, and reduce operational cost.
ESA’s Satellite for 5G (S45G) programme aims promote the value-added benefits of space to 5G, by developing and demonstrating integrated satellite- and terrestrial-based 5G services, across multiple markets and use cases.
The mobile and terrestrial industry is beginning to adopt the new 5G standard for higher data rates, higher efficiencies, massive scalability and lower costs. 5G, too, is expected to dramatically change how satellite is integrated into the larger mobile networks.
