How to get 5G to areas where there is no or little land infrastructure is one of the topics to be discussed at the 5G Forum 2020 on May 6th and 7th, in virtual format.

Inés Sanz, Customer Engineering Manager, will explain the advantages that the satellite provides to the 5G“Among which are security, robustness, multicast capacity and global coverage”, according to Sanz.

“The new satellites are already designed with architecture inspired by 5G. The satellite will be able to provide connectivity solutions to all people and things regardless of where they are”, says Sanz.

For Hispasat’s Customer Engineering Manager, in this situation of confinement the presence of the satellite in Spain is being missed because of its capacity to reach remote areas“Once the satellite is integrated within the 5G standard we will have many more possibilities that we are not able to imagine”.

In addition, Inés Sanz will present two projects that Hispasat is carrying out: the Darwin project, focused on providing a connectivity solution for the autonomous vehicle and the connected vehicle; and the Energy5 project for Smart Grid applications, where satellites allow the deployment and operation of very high reliability and availability energy networks in remote and isolated areas.
