This title is written as a direct follow on to Varrall's 2016 book. It provides an update on 3GPP Release 16 and 17 and the related `New Radio' physical layer specifications. It also studies the implications for World Radio Congress 2019 and related 5G and satellite standards work and discusses the likely impact on the future enterprise value of satellite and 5G operators and their associated supply chains. The satellite industry is entering a golden age of innovation which is having a profound impact on the delivery economics of connectivity from space. Over the past two years there has been a remarkable technical and commercial transformation in the satellite industry, with new service models emerging both from existing established geostationary orbit (GSO) operators to 'NEWLEO' operators such as LEOSAT. Many 5G vertical market use cases could potentially now be served more efficiently from space, but several regulatory and competitive positioning issues need to be resolved before these techniques can be deployed and trusted universally. This book documents these techniques and the associated interference modelling and explores the evolving business and financial and commercial implications of this transformation process. It also captures the emerging focus on discrete vertical markets and their specific physical layer and upper layer protocol and performance requirements.
