Interoperability of 5G and satellite networks

Satellite |

The Challenge

With rapid advancements in satellite production and launch technology and moving to LEO (Low Earth Orbit) and MEO satellite constellations, satellite communications are quickly moving from a specialized niche service with specialized devices and a high cost, to the mainstream. Satellite services become another viable communication option now that the latest smartphones are able to talk to satellites directly and the newest 5G 3GPP standards enable interoperability between 5G and satellite networks.

Satellite’s move to the mainstream requires BSS/OCS readiness for next-generation satellite network monetization that allows providers to take advantage of these new capabilities and be quickly brought to market.

The Solution

With its advanced multi-tenant architecture, proven B2B Customer, Product, and Revenue Management, pre-integration with 5G-enabled OCS, open omnichannel APIs and microservices-based no/low-code workflow orchestration engine, CompaxDigital BSS is a natural choice to support next-generation satellite networks and enable new emerging business models like B2B2x or IoT via satellite.

Open and partner-friendly, CompaxDigital’s satellite solution provides close integration between pre-paid and postpaid rating, charging, and billing functions, includes a flexible centralized Product Catalog, supports complex frame agreements and MVNO/MVNE models, has omnichannel APIs open for partners to take advantage of the new network capabilities and services, as well as can quickly deploy in the cloud, and more.
