Is satellite technology relevant for 5G? What is it used for?
UK5G’s mission is to Educate, Collaborate and Innovate.
Satellite is the only technology that's available ubiquitously. It's used extensively for backhauling 2G, 3G & 4G. It is expectected to play a similar role in 5G. There is a common misconception that all 5G technology will have sub-ms latency. This is absolutely not true, not even for URLLC.
Harmonising satellite with 5G makes a lot of sense, particularly where the technology can augment 5G services.
