The integration of non-terrestrial networks (NTN) into the cellular world offers the promise of a much easier path to a much larger market for satellite systems.
How the convergence of deployable cost effective technology and 3GPP standards (specifically Releases 17, 18 and 19 that are “how” Satellite is finally included in the international specs) will allow a truly world-wide ubiquitous international roaming for non-modified cellphones.
