About this event

Space + Terrestrial - the 5G Journey ... The Internet in Space

June 8th - 2021 -14:00 (BST)

​The distribution of 5G services, through the direct integration of 5G enabled satellites, with terrestrial networks, is a game changer... the importance of which is hard to over-estimate. This hybrid mix promises high speed internet connectivity on land, in the air and at sea, for cars, trucks, trains, vessels, aircraft and unmanned air and surface vehicles, in rural, remote and other such hard-to-reach locations.
