Qualcomm: project for 5G in orbit - no big deal

(CercleFinance.com) - Ericsson, Thales and Qualcomm say they plan to take 5G beyond the Earth's surface, through a network of satellites orbiting the Earth, to enable full global 5G coverage.


After conducting detailed research individually, including numerous studies and simulations, they plan to enter a test and validation phase focusing on smartphone use cases for 5G non-terrestrial networks (5G NTN).

The benefits of 5G connectivity via low Earth orbit satellites are expected to include coverage in extreme geographical areas or remote locations across seas, oceans and other places where terrestrial coverage is absent.

Such widespread connectivity would enhance the roaming service capabilities of subscribers with 5G smartphones and enable global connectivity for 5G use cases in the transport, energy and healthcare sectors.

Nothing stratospheric about this deal - for any player, however - Qualcomm shares are down 1.5% in pre-market trading, Thales shares are just about off the ground (+0.2%), while Ericcson shares are actually down 1%.
