The future railway mobile communication systems – The SAIRCC project

What will the railway systems be like in 20 years? Surely they’ll be more automatized, but what sort of requirements will they have? How will the coming traffic control systems be efficient and safe at the same time? Magister is participating in solving these questions by developing a new air interface for future railway control […]

“Magister Solutions is providing simulations to solve some of the core pain points of the satellite industry” – The market study 2021

The satellite industry is in a constant change and we are always curious to know how to serve it better and more appropriately. To get there, we made a market study with Jansky Partners’ Damien Garot. Read here, how Garot sums up the study and how we are replying to the market’s needs.

Importance of standardization – Magister joins 3GPP
