TRANTOR: the evolution from 5G to 6G satellite will be featured in MWC24

The TRANTOR Project will once again be at the Mobile World Congress, February 26-29 in Barcelona. 

The project carried out by a consortium of ten companies and reference  research centers in Spain and Europe: Hispasat, Inster-Grupo Oesía, Centre  Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC), Fraunhofer IIS, Indra,  RHEA Group, Software Radio Systems (SRS), Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche  (CNR), the Université du Luxembourg and Quadsat, consists of the development  of technology that enables global Internet access through satellite or non  terrestrial networks (NTN) 5G and 6G. 

Visitors to MWC24 will be able to learn more about the TRANTOR project at the  stands of CTTC (CS220), Hispasat (6E13) and Fraunhofer Institute. 

With funding from Horizon Europe, the European Union's (EU) framework program  for research and innovation (R&I), TRANTOR's ultimate goal is to help reduce the  European Union's dependence on third countries for telecommunications, as  well as assist operators in providng a better connectivity to communities  worldwide. 

To achieve this, TRANTOR suggests the in-orbit validation of a complete satellite value chain including automated management of satellite resources across multiple bands, satellites and orbits and a converged radio access network. 

This ambitious project that seeks to facilitate the evolution of 5G networks towards 6G is being developed through three distinct yet convergent areas: 

In the core 5G network and satellite segment management systems, the TRANTOR project develops innovative satellite network management solutions,  fully integrated into the 3GPP management framework, allowing a significant  increase in satellite traffic demands and capacities in a cost-effective, highly dynamic and band- and orbit-agnostic manner. 

At the same time, in the consumer segment, TRANTOR aims to radically increase the flexibility of the access architecture by enabling pre-6G non-terrestrial  multiconnectivity. For this purpose, it will be supported by the design of a multi band and multi-orbit satellite antenna, as well as on the development of gNB  and UE 5G NTN equipment capable of adressing multiconnectivity needs.

Finally, TRANTOR will introduce security mechanisms into the network that provide resilience to all types of cyber threats, especially those arising from the integrated management and multiconnectivity framework.
