Samsung Electronics has announced that it has secured standardized 5G non-terrestrial networks (NTN) modem technology that will enable direct communication between satellites and smartphones in remote areas.
This technology will be incorporated into Samsung’s Exynos modem solutions, which will accelerate the commercialization of 5G satellite communications and setting the stage for the Internet of Everything (IoE) era powered by 6G.
NTN technology employs satellites and other non-terrestrial vehicles to deliver connectivity to areas that were previously out of reach by terrestrial networks, such as over mountains, across deserts, and in the middle of the ocean. It will also play a crucial role in ensuring operability in disaster-stricken areas and powering future unmanned aircraft and flying cars.
By complying with the most up-to-date 5G NTN standards specified by the 3GPP Release 17, Samsung’s NTN technology will ensure interoperability and scalability among services provided by global telecom carriers, mobile device manufacturers, and chip companies.
“This milestone builds on our rich legacy in wireless communications technologies, following the introduction of the industry’s first commercial 4G LTE modem in 2009 and the industry’s first 5G modem in 2018,” said Min Goo Kim, Executive Vice President of CP (Communication Processor) Development at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung aims to take the lead in advancing hybrid terrestrial-NTN communications ecosystems around the world in preparation for the arrival of 6G.”
