Satellite Communications in the 5G Era
29 September 2020
Earlier this month, several SnT experts were featured in the speaker line-up of ICT Spring 2020 in Luxembourg – an event that gathers business decisions makers, innovation managers, startups, researchers and venture capitalists from all over Europe. ICT Spring covers the whole gamut of technology topics, including FinTech, Space and Cybersecurity – the focus subjects of our featured experts. The event is structured in various summits and side events, such as the Space Forum and European Security Forum.
ISM Professor Symeon Chatzinotas, Co-Head of the SIGCOM Research Group, was the keynote speaker at the Space Forum. During his talk on “Satellite Communications in the 5G Era”, he gave an overview on the opportunities and challenges for the SatCom industry in the 5G roll-out.
Chatzinotas discussed the latest evolutions in the industry, and what 5G means for the sector. He went into detail on how different system architectures will integrate with 5G in the coming roll-out, including small sats, large Low-Earth Orbits, and Multi-Orbit constellations.
As more and more data needs to be transmitted, 5G represents a unique opportunity for serving new verticals and creating economies of scale. 5G is also bringing new technologies on the market that can support open, interoperable and scalable systems.
