5G and connectivity networks
The technology is evolutionary. 5G is not just another air interface, but the first opportunity to combine a whole raft of new technologies in one holistic ecosystem.Learn more 5G and connectivity networks
Planning and deployment of heterogeneous terrestrial/satellite networks
CGI CarnotSat is a software tool that allows Mobile Network Operators to carry out scenario based modelling and to explore use cases across vertical markets. CGI CarnotSat can create new or augmented network designs with any backhaul solution, including satellites, microwave backhaul and fibre.
These designs can then be analysed for cost and performance versus business goals. The tool will show where bringing satellite communications into a 4G or 5G network can provide reduced time to market, wider geographical coverage, at a lower cost and improve network performance.
"Space for 5G is a matter of strategic importance for the European Space Agency” Georgios Ziaragkas, Technical Officer for CarnotSat at ESA
CGI CarnotSat was developed after talking to mobile network operators and other key stakeholders for 5G.
There are many locations both in the UK and globally that don’t have sufficient access to terrestrial connectivity in order to support 100% 5G coverage and CGI CarnotSat provides 5G planners with the tool-set they need to achieve it.
