Title: Building the Mega Constellation Satellite Network: 6G-NTN

Abstract: In this talk, we present the concept and design of the emerging low orbit mega satellite constellations, the overall system performance evaluation and innovative new use cases. We present a host of the enabling technologies orbit designs: (1) the satellite-as-space-bastion; (2) the inter-satellite networking; (3) the satellite to mobile access and mobile to satellite access; (4) the spectrum comparison. As a foundational enabler for 6G, non-terrestrial-network will provide, for the first time, the full earth coverage, the 6G-NTN will create disruptive innovative use cases in many areas, we also discuss their revolutionary impacts.
