Topic: "5G with Satellite—Delivering Resilience and Reach"

Join this session to get insights on:

Deploying robust ITS services that work seamlessly irrespective of the users location – whether rural or urban - poses an interesting challenge for ITS connectivity. With 5G and new satellite constellations in the near future, along with the convergence of terrestrial and satellite technology, the provisioning of seamless connectivity on the move – in urban, rural and wilderness - will become a reality and pave the way for richer ITS services. 5G has the ambition to enable harmonious integration of heterogeneous networks whether terrestrial and satellite. It is forecasted that by 2025 around 27.2% of automotive use cases will use satellite connectivity. Through its global reach, satellite communication plays a key role in creating a seamless and affordable connectivity fabric for both infrastructure and vehicles. Such connectivity is sufficient for the deployment of essential ITS services such as emergency calls, fleet management, remote diagnostics and road tolling.
