Abstract

This paper creates a vision for 5G and beyond satellite
connectivity and discusses use cases where development is
needed. We define a layered architecture for future integrated
terrestrial-nonterrestrial networks and discuss what are the key
communications technologies needed to make the operation
reliable and efficient. We outline research challenges
including high frequency bands, spectrum sharing and
interference management, optical communications, and
network management using software-defined networking
principles. Autonomous transport and autonomous satellites
are described both as key drivers behind the development as
well as disruptive technologies to fulfil future needs.
