Case Study: Ground-to-Air LTE Communication Services for Industrial Drone Applications image

With the increasing use of drones for industrial applications, China Unicom has launched an innovative business service project to enable unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to fly at higher altitudes and over longer distances. The Internet & Industrial UAV project employs Unicom’s mobile network to provide industrial drones with ground-to-air communication services for BLOS/BVLOS (beyond-line-of-sight/ beyond-visual-line-of-sight) operation. Designed to serve the needs of government and enterprise customers, the project aims to guarantee reliable real-time and efficient transmission for telemetry data, control commands, and high-definition video during flight.
