1  Scopep. 7

This technical report studies the key issues and the respective solutions related to the support for network selection procedure that accommodates 5G systems using satellite radio access networks. The objective is to:
  • identify the specifics of the satellite access networks with respect to the legacy 3GPP access networks that are relevant to the PLMN selection procedure; and
  • consider the need to modify the legacy PLMN selection procedure to address the identified specifics.

2  Referencesp. 7

The following documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of the present document.
  • References are either specific (identified by date of publication, edition number, version number, etc.) or non-specific.
  • For a specific reference, subsequent revisions do not apply.
  • For a non-specific reference, the latest version applies. In the case of a reference to a 3GPP document (including a GSM document), a non-specific reference implicitly refers to the latest version of that document in the same Release as the present document.
