ETHER is very proud to be interviewed and featured in the Constellations Newsletter published by the Kratos magazine.
In this podcast, Dr. Konstantinos Ntontin, a research scientist at the University of Luxembourg, SnT and the coordinator of ETHER, explained that 6G will be a dramatic departure from earlier network architectures that were built to optimize terrestrial networks.
“The idea in 3GPP Release 17 was to incorporate non-terrestrial networks by using the already optimized functionalities of terrestrial networks,” he told Constellations. “But in terms of 6G networks, we follow a completely different approach. We consider a unified network that comprises three layers: the terrestrial layer, the aerial layer…and the satellite layer.”Dr. Konstantinos Ntontin
