Following its earlier announcement, the Eurescom-led ESA ARTES project 5G-GOA has published the modified and extended OpenAirInterface™ open-source code that supports 5G Non-Terrestrial Networking according to 3GPP Release 17, supporting direct connectivity over geostationary satellites. The code is available for immediate use in the public OAI repository at: https://gitlab.eurecom.fr/oai/openairinterface5g/-/commits/goa-5g-ntn. The project also created a merge request, so the modifications and improvements will be merged and integrated into the main development branch of OAI shortly.
