Flex Space 5G

The Ultimate 5G-NR NTN Emulation System

Empowering Next-Generation Networking with Unmatched Flexibility

FLEX SPACE 5G stands as a pioneering all-in-one solution designed to revolutionize the way 5G networks are emulated, tested, and validated.


Tailored for the sophisticated requirements of next-gen networking, this system provides an end-to-end service for 5G Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN), offering full configurability, 3GPP compliance, and seamless integration with Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) interfaces.


A Convergence of Innovation and Functionality

At the heart of FLEX SPACE 5G is a comprehensive suite of sub-systems that together create a robust platform for the emulation of 5G-NR NTN environments.


This includes:

OAI-Based 5G-NR Network Implementation

Running on a host computer, this subsystem simulates the 5G Core Network (CN) and a combination of User Equipment (UE) and gNodeBs, supporting up to 2 UE and 2 gNodeB configurations.

Advanced SDR Technology

A 4-channel Software Defined Radio (SDR) with UHD interface to the host computer, facilitating precise emulation and analysis.

Satellite Channel Emulator

Managed via HTTP REST API and based on CELEOS, this sub-system supports standard channel impairments related to Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, offering a realistic emulation of satellite communication channels.


Enhancing Laboratory Testing with Real-World Precision

FLEX SPACE 5G is engineered for use in laboratory settings where a cabled RF environment is essential for emulating real 5G NTN capable networks. Its design reflects a commitment to providing a comprehensive tool for efficiently simulating, testing, and validating 5G networks in a scalable and cost-effective manner.


The system's architecture, detailed in high-level block diagrams, showcases the key building blocks and full configuration potential for user engagement.


Addressing Complex Network Scenarios with Ease

The versatility of FLEX SPACE 5G extends to key use cases such as TN-NTN-TN Handover (HO) and IoT support, ensuring the system can navigate diverse network scenarios with finesse.

By standardizing Service Management and Orchestration (SMO) configuration and 5G NTN parameters, FLEX SPACE 5G is designed to be user-friendly, catering to a wide array of networking requirements.


Leveraging Leading Technologies for Superior Performance

Our approach leverages the flexibility of the Open Air Interface (OAI) platform and virtualization services, alongside the prowess of Software-Defined Radio (SDR) technology and X86-based processing systems.

These technologies bring forth the adaptability and efficiency vital for realistic network simulations, offering programmable radio capabilities and robust processing performance essential for the FLEX SPACE 5G system.


Interactive User Engagement

FLEX SPACE 5G enables user interaction through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) and programmatically via the 5G NTN Communication System API, fostering a dynamic and accessible user experience.


Accelerating the 5G Era

FLEX SPACE 5G embodies our commitment to accelerating 5G network research and deployment, paving the way for the full realization of 5G's potential.


This system is not just a tool but a gateway to innovation in satellite communications, enabling comprehensive testing scenarios that drive technological advancements in the field.
