Contributing to the 5GPPP use case “Broadband access everywhere”, SaT5G will foster the implementation of solutions enabling the “plug and play” integration of satcom components into 5G networks. To this aim, SaT5G will research, develop and validate the key technology enablers through demonstrations in live 5G testbeds. SaT5G impact is for the satellite industry to join the European initiative in the deployment of a competitive and ubiquitous 5G network globally. The overall SaT5G goal is to deliver a ubiquitous end user of at least 50Mbps 5G broadband service and optimise satcom within the 5G network infrastructure to provide services in the following verticals: Media & Entertainment, Transportation, Health, Logistics and Agriculture Industries in developed and emerging markets. Four SaT5G use cases have been carefully selected:
The project vision is to develop a cost effective “plug and play” satcom solution for 5G to enable telcos and network vendors to accelerate 5G deployment across all geographies and at the same time create new and growing market opportunities for satcom industry stakeholders. SaT5G will bring the following benefits for the 5G mobile industry;
