15th BroadSky Workshop: One More Asset for the 5th Generation

The new wave is coming to satellite communications world with Super HTS and Super LEO Constellations. At the same time, terrestrial mobile communications are moving into 5th Generation (5G).
5G will provide various kinds of communication capabilities by users’ requirements, such as very high throughput, very low latency, very high density of terminals, and so on. Though satellite communications seldom appear in discussions of 5G, it is included in the concept of 5G. Satellite communications can provide some unique advantages to the 5G environment.

The 15th BroadSky Workshop focuses on the roles of satellite communications in 5G and related technologies of Satellite Systems and Earth Station in Motion (ESIM) technologies.

The Workshop is organized by NICT, the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology of Japan.
