The integration of terrestrial and space based communications is happening today, more mobile base stations are using satellite backhaul than ever before; be this as primary connectivity or as a resilient path in the event of a terrestrial transmission failure. This backhaul is typically via GEO satellites today however exciting new developments in LEO satellites mean that additional options, which promise higher data rates and lower latency, will be available to mobile network operators. In addition to mobile backhaul, operators are deploying air to ground networks to provide connectivity to airborne assets such as planes and helicopters, and often using both terrestrial and space based connectivity to such assets. This session will review these use cases and explore recent developments in 3GPP non-terrestrial networks for space based 5G mobile broadband and IoT services.

Session Chaired by Jaime Reed, Vice President, Space Data Platforms and Applications, CGI

Speakers include:

Maria Lema, Co-Founder, Weaver Labs
Seamless Integration of Satellite and Terrestrial Networks for Humanitarian Use Cases
Integration of Satellite and IoT terrestrial networks has been a topic of interest in supply chain management as a solution to provide full tracking coverage in remote areas with limited access to Internet connection. Weaver Labs has designed and developed WireMQ: an asynchronous, modular and customizable messaging system built for communications networks. The use of WireMQ allows for seamless integration of multiple communication technologies, ensuring interoperability and convergence across heterogeneous communications assets. In this presentation we will cover the design and use of WireMQ as a solution to route traffic seamlessly across a mesh network using a Satellite uplink as a gateway for IoT data. We will also cover the use of this technology for the Humanitarian sector as part of a European Space Agency Demonstrator project called "Tack and Trust" where we show the benefits of the integration of Satellite communication with IoT networks in creating last mile connectivity.
