ETSI Workshop on 5G and SatComs Featured

The VITAL project participated at the 14th session of the ETSI Satellite Communication and Navigation Working Group which took place at Sophia Antipolis/France on 26th January 2016. As part of this event, the 5G and SatCom workshop was organized which was a gathering point of several H2020 5G projects and relevant ESA/H2020 projects related to SatComs. 

The main objectives of the workshop was to discuss about

  • possible re use of 5G network elements, protocols and/or technologies in future satellite systems
  • novel integration scenarios of satellite systems in the 5G architecture in relation with the “5G Connectivity Using Satellites” use case of 3GPP TR 22.891 on 5G-SMARTER 

The VITAL project presentation was well received and the project was invited by the SCN WG to contribute to the on-going WI on integration of satellite in 5G, but taking into account the architecture approach defined by 5G projects such as 5GNORMA.

Tinku and Ramon represented the VITAL project at the event. The presentation can be accessed at the link provided below.
