dc.description.abstract6th generation (6G) communication research is currently focusing on non-terrestrial networks (NTNs) to promote ubiquitous and ultra-high-capacity global connectivity. Specifically, multi-layered hierarchical networks, i.e., the orchestration among different aerial/space platforms, including Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), High Altitude Platforms (HAPs), and satellites co-operating at different altitudes, currently represents one the most attractive technological options to solve coverage and latency constraints associated with the NTN paradigm. However, there are still several issues to be resolved for proper network design. In our work, we evaluate the performance of different multi-layered non-terrestrial configurations, and then provide guidelines on the optimal working point(s) for which it is possible to achieve a good compromise between improved system flexibility and network performance, with respect to a baseline standalone deployment.
