Satellite and Terrestrial Network Convergence

With 5G NTN specified in 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 17 for NR/IoT, and further specification in Release 18, together with trials and deployment of these standardized solutions, this publication aims at providing a timely outline for the next generation, global 6G NTN standard. As the proponent of 3GPP NTN standardization since 3GPP Release 17, MediaTek has taken a leading role in the system design, standardization and ongoing evolution of 5G NTN, both for NR NTN and IoT NTN. This includes the world’s 1st 5G IoT NTN and NR NTN PoC, and commercialization experience with economies of scale leveraging MediaTek terrestrial NR devices and IoT devices. With this experience in hand, MediaTek holds a central position to define and drive the vision and realization of next generation 6G NTN.
