Samsung: this is the NTN satellite communication technology for 5G smartphones

samsung Electronics has released a technology 5G Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN) modem, a standardized system that enables direct communication between this generation of mobile devices and satellites.

The company has commented that this system is specially intended for communication “in remote areas” and that it plans to integrate this technology into Exynos modem solutions in order to “accelerate the communication of 5G satellite communications and pave the way for the Internet of Everything (IoE) era, powered by 6G.”

NTN is a communications technology that uses satellites and other non-terrestrial vehicles to provide connectivity to regions previously inaccessible via terrestrial networks, such as mountains, deserts, or oceans.

In this sense, the South Korean manufacturer considers that this system will be “fundamental in disaster areas” and that it hopes to promote future urban air mobility (UAM) with it, such as unmanned aircraft, as explained in a statement.

Samsung’s NTN technology complies with the 5G standards defined by the 3GPP Release 17 standard, ensuring interoperability and scalability between devices provided by global telecom operators, manufacturers of ‘smartphones’ and companies that develop chips.

The company has commented, on the other hand, that for NTN satellite communication “highly reliable” with Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, has developed and simulated satellite technology based on the 5G NTN standard using the Exynos 5300 modemwhich has served for “accurately predict satellite locations and minimize frequency offsets caused by Doppler shift.”

Thanks to this technology, future modems in this family will support two-way text messaging, high-definition images and video sharing.

Finally, Samsung has said that it plans to secure a standardized NB-IoT NTN technology for use in its next-generation modem platforms. In that way, the need for a built-in wireless antenna chip in smartphones may be eliminated.
