TOWARDS CONVERGED 5G NETWORKS: Accelerating the UK transformation to a digital economy

During the first half of 2018, a study led by the University of Surrey explored future directions of 5G mobile networks. The aim of the study was to look at the opportunities and challenges of converged satellite and terrestrial 5G services, with a focus on the commercial implications for business (rather than consumer) applications.

This study recommends several important next steps to explore the value of converged satellite and terrestrial 5G services. The most urgent is a call to mobilise the community to deepen our initial sector scenarios through a series of test beds and trials with key players from each sector.

This report was commissioned by Horizons5G and was written by Prof Alan Brown – Surrey Centre of the Digital Economy, Surrey Business School and Roger Camrass – Surrey Innovations Ltd

with contributions from future business users and senior Technology Leads from:
