The satellite tv for pc IoT startup OQ Know-how is organising a European 5G satellite tv for pc check heart in Luxembourg after receiving an experimental license for 5G frequencies.
The corporate is creating a satellite tv for pc community for the Web of Issues (IoT) primarily based on proprietary base station software program and utilized for terrestrial and satellite-based frequencies for 5G providers final 12 months. The license offers entry to a few totally different frequency bands, two for cellular satellite tv for pc frequency bands and one band used for terrestrial mobile providers.
The corporate plans a community of 60 satellites in low earth orbit (LEO), with the primary, Tiger 2, being launched in June 2021. These will work with geostationary associate satellites to make sure full world protection. The middle in Leudelange will conduct stay satellite tv for pc exams of OQ Know-how’s person terminals and payloads, optimize the planning mechanism on board the satellite tv for pc and check the NB-IoT software program stack underneath the 3GPP Launch 13 specification.
The middle will even check varied chipsets, and antennas that OQ sees as a part of person terminals. The corporate has already developed a battery-powered hybrid programmable satellite tv for pc mobile terminal with pay as you go information packets through a number of SIMs for distant monitoring and management of mounted and cellular belongings within the transportation, oil and gasoline, utilities, maritime and agricultural sectors. The terminal helps GSM / LTE-M / NB-IoT and satellite tv for pc connections each within the uplink and within the downlink and might join as much as 1000 sensors through a number of I / Os.
The OQ check heart will speed up market entry by doing all vital in-orbit validation and product growth in Luxembourg with all goal frequencies as an alternative of touring to any a part of the world to do stay exams.
“This provides us the higher hand in our product growth and market entry efforts. We might additionally prefer to combine the merchandise of our suppliers and subcontractors into OQ
