- Contributing to realization of seamlessly connected space and terrestrial networks -

Japan Radio Co., Ltd. (JRC) (Representative Director and President: Takeshi Koarai), SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation (President & Chief Executive Officer: Eiichi Yonekura), and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) (President: Hideyuki Tokuda, Ph.D.), jointly worked to conduct a Japan-Europe joint experiment for connecting satellite and 5G, including Japan-Europe long-distance network. Successful transmission of 5G control-plane signal, 4K video, and IoT data was achieved in January and February of 2022 for the first time in Japan. This experiment was conducted in collaboration with the University of Tokyo, School of Engineering, Nakao Research Laboratory, the European Space Agency (ESA), Eurescom GmbH, and Fraunhofer FOKUS Institute.

A part of this research's results was obtained from the commissioned research "Research and Development of Satellite-Terrestrial Integration Technology in Beyond 5G" (No. 21901) by NICT, JAPAN.
