Next Generation technology, namely 5G system devices shall include both 3GPP and non-3GPP access technologies. The most appropriate access technologies will be decided by the system which will facilitate multiple access, simultaneous provision for terminal devices (User Equipment – UE).
The 3GPP ,unites the leading seven telecommunication standards bodies and enables an environment for collaborative specification formulation, has stated, in relation to the development of the 5G system, that:
“New technology such as satellite and wide area base stations will increase coverage and availability.”
Satellite Communications (SATCOM) technology developers are now looking to design, test and roll out not just the orbiting communication Satellites but also ‘5G interoperable’ terrestrial interface equipment to provide the UL/DL required, as well as Backhaul solutions and UE.
Whilst compliance and regulatory requirements (CE/RED/FCC etc.) are both understood and commonplace in the wider mobile communications arena, the new SATCOM/5G technologies require more specialised guidance and support as testing may be required against non-harmonised standards.
IoTAS are able to offer guidance and consultancy, project management and delivery of Compliance and Regulatory approvals for your Satellite Ground Station telecommunications port (teleport) equipment, in addition to any other 3GPP cellular interoperability testing that you may require.
This process includes, but is not limited to:
