Reiner Stuhlfauth Reiner Stuhlfauth is a Technology Marketing Manager, working in the technology management team at Rohde & Schwarz’s Headquarters in Munich, Germany. He is responsible for teaching and promoting mobile communication technologies, especially cellular standards such as GSM, (E)GPRS, UMTS, HSPA, LTE, LTE-Advanced and 5G NR, but also non-cellular technologies such as WLAN and Bluetooth. He is also involved in a number of projects concerning 5G, the next mobile communication technology. In his role, he links development and sales organizations to coordinate the implementation of technical features into R&S instruments and interactively discusses new requirements with R&S customers.

5G Non-Terrestrial Networks

Early visionaries of communication foresaw the usage of satellite- or airborne-based network components. Early trials and implementations never took off due to commercial reasons.  Over the last years (and even decades), there has been a tremendous development in the satellite and aerospace community (as well as in worldwide wireless communication requirements). With the new work item under development in 3GPP, the vision of ubiquitous communication networks including satellite and airborne can become a reality. Satellites from LEO to GEO or airborne base stations (HAPS) can be launched and connected to terrestrial ground stations in a feasible way. Radio technologies like beamforming and 5G numerologies support a reliable connection from mobile devices to stations in high altitudes.

In this webinar, Rohde and Schwarz takes a closer look at the current status of how non-terrestrial networks are treated in the 3GPP standardization, especially in Rel. 17: what the technical challenges are, what the spectrum allocation looks like, and how to leverage the deployment of NTN capable devices and networks.
