Satellite Networking Testbed

The 5G/6G Satellite Networking Testbed, unique in the UK, is an extension to our 5G/6G core and campus RAN network. It allows end-to-end trials of new services over satellite as well as research and development of new 5G/6G non-terrestrial-network equipment.

Satellite integrated 5G/6G networking testbed

The testbed facility has been used to demonstrate 5G backhauling, delivery of content to the edge using multicast and caching, and multi-linking using a combination of the satellite and terrestrial network to improve QoE for a range of traffic types.

The testbed can be employed for wider 5G/6G use case trials as well as being a platform for enhanced development of NTN software and equipment.
