    Hi All,

    GSMA just published High Altitude Platform Systems Towers in the Skies Version 2.0

    This whitepaper highlights the potential of HAPS to meet the need for more broadband connectivity
    worldwide. HAPS are very versatile: they can be adjusted to prioritize coverage or capacity
    depending on the use case. Moreover, an aircraft can be deployed to cover a location at short
    notice. As HAPS can employ LTE and 5G, there are no special requirements on the user
    equipment: a normal smartphone can be used. As a result, HAPS can support a variety of use
    cases for both developed and developing markets, including:

     Greenfield coverage – providing coverage in areas with no cellular networks
     White spot reduction – filling in gaps in cellular coverage
     Emergency communications/disaster recovery – backing up damaged terrestrial networks
     The Internet of Things (IoT) – connecting sensors, appliances, machines, and vehicles
     Temporary coverage for events/tourist hotspots – adding extra capacity in specific locations
     Fixed wireless access - a broadband alternative to deploying fixed lines
     Connectivity for urban air mobility and drones – providing better connectivity in the air
     Terrestrial site backhaul – connecting base stations and edge data centers to the Internet
     Extended coverage over the sea – providing connectivity in proximity to shores
