KT SAT announced on July 14 that it will participate in 'Satellite Asia 2021', the largest satellite communication exhibition in Asia and the Pacific region.
The company is planning to solidify its position as a global satellite telecommunication business by introducing hybrid router transmission technology at the exhibition.
Satellite Asia 2021 is an exhibition in the field of satellite communication at the Asia Tech x Singapore (AT x SG) event, where global tech leaders gather. The event will be held online from July 14 to July 16.
KT SAT will hold a presentation session on July 15 under the theme of 'The Future of Satellite Communications based on a Hybrid Router Solution'. In the session, company plans to introduce the advantages and use cases of hybrid router transmission technology.
KT SAT's hybrid router is a technology that enables more reliable data communication than conventional 5G services using a protocol that combines communication.
It improves the quality of mobile communication because it provides Seamless communication over satellite networks even if 5G communication is lost. It can also be used in various fields such as the military, disaster situations, and mobility areas that require stable communication.
Last year, KT SAT already introduced satellite 5G hybrid transmission technology by linking it to KT's 5G communication network.
This year, it expanded scope of technology verification to foreign communication environment by developing its technology better than last year. It plans to introduce outstanding hybrid router quality as a global service.
For this exhibition, KT SAT conducted a test of interworking between Greek commercial 5G networks using a hybrid router with Hellas Sat, a local satellite operator, in Greece earlier this month.
KT's software infrastructure technology is applied to hybrid routers that were used for testing. The hybrid router makes it easy to use hybrid transport technology not only domestically but globally in the form of a network-as-a-service.
This technology can also be applied to various cloud environments such as public clouds and mobile edge computing (MEC).
"This is an opportunity to show KT SAT's satellite communication technology that is linked to advanced 5G technology in foreign countries," said Song Kyung-min, CEO of KT SAT. "By introducing innovative new technologies in the 5G era, satellite communication will seek to evolve various communication environments."
