You may have noticed an increased buzz surrounding Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites coming to market and the potential they bring as they’re set to deliver new levels of connectivity to the most remote portions of our globe. Companies including Telesat, SpaceX and OneWeb are in different stages of launch, each with varying performance capabilities and service start dates.
The LEO solutions coming to market will have the ability to provide Gbps links to a site, similar to a home or office connection. And while this is promising, Speedcast has set out to validate if these next-generation constellations will help meet the needs of our customer sets, with operations in remote or harsh locations. Speedcast’s mission has always been to evaluate and leverage the best technologies to design comprehensive solutions that deliver the highest performance levels for critical, maximum uptime operations. As our customers’ technology partner, our teams have been busy testing the new LEO offerings to determine potential value and applicability based on customer requirements.
