Satellite Communication in the Age of 5G
The next generation of mobile networks (5G) aims to revolutionize the world of communication. New technologies and use cases spawn new opportunities. Many of the promised performance characteristics of 5G require that terrestrial networks are augmented by communication satellites. This paper describes where an integration of satellite and 5G will benefit both technologies.
