Satellite Use Cases in 5G: Accent on eMBB and mMTC

The presentation will address the most promising satellite use cases for 5G which have been selected and are under investigation within the EU H2020 5G PPP Phase 2 project “SaT5G” (Satellite and Terrestrial Network for 5G, and the ESA ARTES project “SATis5” (Demonstrator for Satellite-Terrestrial Integration in the 5G Context, In particular, focus will be on the most promising satellite use cases for eMBB (enhanced Mobile Broadband) and mMTC (massive Machine-Type Communications) service classes. The selection methodology will be elaborated. The relevance of the selected satellite use cases for eMBB and mMTC to the 5G market verticals will be presented. Moreover, a qualitative market size assessment of the selected satellite use cases for eMBB and mMTC will be provided.
