Four types of challenges for 5G non-terrestrial networks

One of the new capabilities that is being introduced in 5G is integration of terrestrial networks with non-terrestrial networks (NTN), whether those are High-altitude Platforms (HAPS) flying the stratosphere, or satellites in low-Earth orbit (LEO) or geostationary orbit (GEO). The ability to provide 5G...

5G broadband goes to the stratosphere

Stratospheric Systems demonstrated its 5G High Altitude Platform (HAP), yielding 90 Mbps download speeds from 45,000 feet.

What are HAPS and what role will they play in future networks?

Non-terrestrial networks (NTN) are being integrated into 5G standards and, according to standards body ATIS, "maximize the inherent value of 5G networks by solving coverage problems and difficult use-cases that ground-based infrastructure alone cannot address." While NTN are often assumed to be LEO or...
