Optimizing standardized system architecture for ubiquitous cellular and satellite systems experience

featured image
The need for considering non-terrestrial satellite services within traditional CSPs systems architecture is significant to reflect the evolving landscape of telecommunications and the broader digital ecosystem. While satellite communications and cellular networks have traditionally been separate technologies, there is ongoing effort within the 3GPP to integrate satellite capabilities into the standardization process by working on service continuity, service ubiquity, and service scalability. TM Forum can also contribute to the enhancement of non-terrestrial satellite services within the traditional system architecture. Therefore enhancing systems architecture between cellular networks and satellite networks is important as it offers a range of benefits in terms of coverage, reliability, and continuity of communication services, making it possible to connect people and devices across the globe including in areas where traditional infrastructure may be lacking. But more importantly, we (Champions and Participants) must foster collaboration between the telecommunications industry and the satellite industry. This includes engaging with other key players from the ecosystem such as chipset maker, equipment manufacturers, and service integrators to understand their needs and challenges. By focusing on these areas, the TM Forum can contribute to the evolution of traditional system architectures to optimize non-terrestrial satellite services, fostering a more integrated and efficient telecommunications landscape. Ultimately, these benefits will enhance the customer experience, a crucial aspect for the success of telecommunications services of today and tomorrow.
