Webinar: Blog posts 3GPP Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN)


3GPP Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN) | 17th November 2022 

Join Les Granfield on 17th November (10-11am UK time) for this live training webinar looking at 3GPP Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN) (17 Nov)

This webinar looks at how 3GPP propose to use the 5G New Radio (NR) to provide 5G cellular coverage in hard-to-reach locations such as ships at sea, airborne aircraft, trains and remote geographical locations using non-terrestrial flying objects.   The flying objects are more commonly known as satellites but the NTN will also include High Altitude Platform Systems (HAPS), Air-to-Ground Systems as well as Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). 

Topics include:

  • Competing commercial satellite systems
  • Why 5G NTN
  • Non-terrestrial Platforms and terminology
  • Satellite Orbits and the problems they pose
  • 5G NTN Architectures
  • 3GPP Use Cases
  • NTN Challenges and potential solutions
  • NTN Timescales
  • NTN Standards
