DYNASAT paper awarded at IEEE Competition on Non-Terrestrial Networks for B5G and 6G, 2022

The DYNASAT paper entitled “Adaptive Multi-Connectivity Activation for Throughput Enhancement in 5G and Beyond Non-Terrestrial Networks”, drafted and presented by the DYNASAT partner Magister Solutions, was awarded at IEEE Competition on Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN) for Beyond 5G (B5G) and 6G, 2022.

The competition, which was organised by the IEEE Future Networks Initiative and was sponsored by the Communications, Space & Technology (CST) of Saudi Arabia, took place from November 8-10, 2022, in the context of the International Forum on Connecting the World from the Skies in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The objective of this competition was to explore innovative solutions to ‘connect the unconnected’ via Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN).

Magister Solutions‘ researcher Mikko Majamaa presented the work co-authored with Henrik Martikainen, Lauri Sormunen, and Jani Puttonen, acknowledging the DYNASAT project.

About Connecting the World from the Skies

Connecting the World from the Skies is an international forum that gathers policymakers, representatives from the space and radiocommunications industry, researchers, and other relevant international bodies. It features a plethora of tutorials, discussions, and keynote presentations on the benefits and challenges of emerging Non-Terrestrial Networks systems, such as synchronisation and interference management, regulations, and space debris.

The main theme of this year’s edition was to investigate innovative solutions for leveraging NTN systems to connect the 2.7 billion people who still do not have access to the internet. The single-word response was ‘cooperation.’ Because there is no one-size-fits-all solution, future NTN systems will have to cooperate and coexist with one another. The systems will most likely include multi-orbit satellites, UAVs, and HAPS. However, more research into dynamic spectrum sharing and bandwidth-efficient techniques is required.
