This strategic partnership between GSOA and ESA aims to bring the mobile and the satellite communities closer together, to accelerate the innovation in the integration of satellites in 5G and 6G networks, leveraging the unique strengths and expertise each entity brings to the table. The MOI establishes a framework for cooperation to fostering innovation, knowledge exchange, and mutual support.
Following on many years of successful cooperation, this MoI symbolizes the start of an exciting journey towards the integration of satellite and terrestrial networks and technologies, reflecting a united effort to shape the future of increased inclusive and sustainable connectivity and telecommunications on a global scale.
“GSOA actively engages in the dynamic ecosystem of non-terrestrial and terrestrial integration. This powerful synergy, by unlocking the full potential of both satellite and terrestrial telecommunications, not only enables to advance technology, but also ensures that it connects everyone, everywhere, shaping the future of connectivity, and working towards resolving the digital divide. By fostering collaboration and embracing innovation, we envision a future where every individual, regardless of location, enjoys the benefits of a connected world,” said Isabelle Mauro, Director General at GSOA.
“We are looking forward to working closer with GSOA on a series of joint initiatives and use our collective expertise to unlock the full potential of 5G and 6G technology towards a future where space-born connectivity is seamlessly integrated with terrestrial 5G/6G networks for the benefit of billions of users worldwide,” said Francisco-Javier Benedicto Ruiz, Acting Director of Connectivity & Secure Communications at ESA.
