Connecting flying objects has been discussed in documents describing the uses and evolution of LTE networks, both in 4G and in the future 5G. Moreover, a dedicated report entitled: Study On Enhanced Support for Aerial Vehicles, was approved by the 3GPP in March of 2017 within the context of 3GPP LTE Release 15 to identify possible issues and improvements needed in LTE to support drones and other flying devices.
Sequans, as an expert in LTE technology and a provider of optimized LTE connectivity solutions for many types of devices, including inflight devices, has devoted time and resources to investigating the use of LTE for drones to get a better understanding of the performance of drones in terrestrial networks and the impact of drones on network performance. This white paper summarizes the key findings.
