5G’s future is hybrid – the non-terrestrial opportunity for US government
5G architecture will unlock unprecedented possibilities for US government agencies, like nothing seen before. It will combine terrestrial and non-terrestrial networks (NTNs) – including high-altitude platforms (HAPs) such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and low earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellations – into a hybrid network providing truly ubiquitous mobile broadband to every corner of the globe, for the most mission critical operations.
This paper explores the future 5G hybrid infrastructure, looking at what can be achieved today and the emerging technologies that will unlock the full potential of NTNs in the future, including intelligent antennas. It also examines the commercial opportunities presented by NTNs, which will create value across the entire government ecosystem.
