Satellite for 5G

Satellite dish with 5g signal icon

The course is designed for individuals with a working knowledge of Satellite Communications and 5G who desire to acquire greater knowledge in the areas of Network Planning, satellite use cases, and technical & regulatory challenges. The course will start with a quick overview of Satellite Communications, Frequency Bands, LEO, MEO and GEO satellites, followed by typical examples of satellite use cases for 5G and technical & regulatory challenges that need to be resolved before satellites can be used for 5G. Participants will be exposed to other related areas as well, including link power budget, propagation delays, free space loss, multiple access techniques, small satellites business case, etc.
