5G and Next-Gen Satellite Internet: Toward Low-Latency Pervasive Coverage

5G and Next-Gen Satellite Internet: Toward Low-Latency Pervasive Coverage

"The timing of the introduction in 2020 onward of 5G New Radio and global low Earth orbit satellites is fortuitous and will lead to marked economies of scale for satellite terminals. In contrast to 4G, which was primarily designed for faster consumer internet access, 5G will address the Internet of Things and enable many new uses cases such as autonomous robots, vehicles, and drones," says Bill Rojas, Adjunct Research Director, IDC Asia/Pacific. "The holy grail of connecting directly from mobile devices to LEO satellites is within reach and we could see significant strides to be made in the next three to five years," he adds.
