ZTE's first 5G NTN satellite communication mobile phone accesses the network: supports short messages and voice intercom


According to news on February 14, a new model ZTE A2024 ZTE phone has already entered the network. This phone will be ZTE's first 5G NTN satellite communication phone.

ZTE announced the operator's 5G NTN technology last year. It is a direct communication technology between terminals and satellites based on new air interface technology formulated by 3GPP in the R17 stage, and supports short messages, voice intercom and other services.

It is understood that NTN is an important supplement to terrestrial cellular communication technology and one of the technical directions for mobile phones to directly connect to satellites. Utilizing the integration of satellite communication network and terrestrial 5G network, it can provide ubiquitous coverage without being restricted by topography, and connect multi-dimensional spaces of air, sky, earth, and sea to form an integrated ubiquitous access network, enabling all Scenes can be accessed on demand.

It is also reported that the Huawei Mate X3, which will be released in the near future, will support the second-generation satellite communication technology. Compared with the first-generation one-way communication capability of the Huawei Mate50 series, the second-generation satellite communication technology may support two-way communication.

At present, there are two Huawei and Apple that support mobile phone satellite communication. The Huawei Mate 50 series can only send short messages and does not support reception, and it needs to be used in an open and unsheltered environment.

Although the iPhone 14 supports two-way communication, it can send and receive, and can be used for emergency contact, but it can only contact specific emergency agencies, and it is only available in the United States and Canada.

As more and more manufacturers get involved in mobile satellite communications, it is believed that this technology will gradually become popular and bring more convenience to consumers' lives.
