The GSOA and GSMA have agreed to collaborate on fostering innovation and seamless terrestrial and non-terrestrial satellite network (TN-NTN) integration.

By combining the expertise and resources of both associations, they aim to explore new frontiers in technology and leverage synergies between mobile and satellite technologies.

Joint activities will focus on innovative technologies and applications that leverage the strengths of both satellite and mobile networks, such as 5G integration, IoT connectivity, remote sensing, and global coverage, unlocking new opportunities for consumers and enterprises.

The partnership will also include educational programs, workshops, and events aimed at raising awareness and understanding of the benefits and opportunities presented by convergence of the two technologies. By nurturing a culture of teamwork and knowledge-sharing, the partnership seeks to empower stakeholders and drive adoption of next-generation communication technologies.

“We are collaborating with GSMA and their members to advance the integration of terrestrial and non-terrestrial networks. This is fundamental in creating a seamless and ubiquitous communications infrastructure, that will help accelerate digital inclusion and digital transformation, including in areas that are currently unserved or underserved”, said Isabelle Mauro, Director General, GSOA. “As 5G and 6G continue to evolve, this convergence becomes paramount in building a reliable, secure, robust and globally connected world”, she added.

Mats Granryd, Director General at the GSMA, said, “This collaborative agreement marks a significant milestone in the evolution of telecommunications, signalling a shift towards a more interconnected and resilient global network infrastructure. By working together, we can help the communications industry bring innovative solutions to market to connect more people, and more devices, for the benefit of society and industry.”
