Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTNs)
srsRAN Enterprise 5G provides an
ideal platform for NTN development
fully containerized and portable across processor architectures.
As an internationally standardised and interoperable technology, common elements of 5G will be available for deployment across both terrestrial and non-terrestrial domains. The CU/DU split also provides options to satellite communication providers in where to place the processing elements; whether that’s at the ground station, onboard or a combination of the two.
NTNs can be based on different technologies such as satellites, drones, or high-altitude platform stations. An NTN can provide wireless connectivity in remote or hard-to-reach areas where terrestrial infrastructure is either not available or not feasible to deploy.
