  • Unique global data network using satellite-to-satellite laser links to create an MPLS network in space
  • Business backbone in space 1.5 times faster than terrestrial fiber
  • Extremely-low latency and ultra-secure network
  • Combining the speed of fiber with the reach of satellite

LeoSat Enterprises, which is launching a constellation of 108 low-earth-orbit communications satellites that will provide the fastest, most secure and widest coverage data network in the world, has entered into an agreement with FMC GlobalSat, a global provider of satellite and wireless connectivity solutions to geographically remote businesses. Through the arrangement, FMC GlobalSat will upgrade its existing satellite solutions, giving it’s 4G/LSAT customers access to LeoSat’s secure and highly-efficient satellite connectivity for maritime, energy and in-transit use cases.

Big Data is clearly driving the need for new communications infrastructure and data volumes are exploding, with global networks are already carrying more than 1 Zeta Byte of traffic, and this is forecast to grow exponentially. This increasing demand to move large quantities of data quickly and securely around the world is fast outpacing the infrastructure needed to carry it. LeoSat’s unique new network has been designed to solve these essential communications and connectivity issues and provide new opportunities for business sectors such as multi-national enterprise, telecommunications, oil & gas, maritime and government services.

LeoSat’s system of low earth orbit communications satellites can achieve lower latency and stronger end-to-end security compared to traditional satellite and terrestrial solutions used today. This is achieved through an advanced and unique system architecture utilizing optical inter-satellite laser links which connect the satellites, creating fiber-like symmetry at Gigabits speeds while providing total security as the data is encrypted and secured from end-to-end across the network, with no terrestrial touch points.

FMC GlobalSat’s 4G/LTSAT solution leverages 4G wireless network connectivity together with HTS connections accessed via the Kymeta software-steered flat-panel very small aperture terminal (VSAT) antenna. This converged service platform constantly monitors signal strength and network throughput, and automatically switches traffic to the path with the strongest signal without any intervention. This seamless connectivity facilitates real-time applications and monitoring regardless of location, and the service is particularly well-suited for offshore, maritime, in-transit, and remote geographic installation use cases.

Michael Abad-Santos, SVP Americas at LeoSat said “LeoSat’s system is completely driven by customer requirements. We are delighted to work with an innovative company such as FMC GlobalSat, which is serving customers with a unique converged 4G wireless and HTS solution. FMC GlobalSat has identified a market requirement for seamless onshore and offshore network access, and we are looking forward to collaborating with them to deliver a solution that will ramp up performance, improve security, and increase customer efficiency.”

Emmanuel Cotrel, CEO of FMC GlobalSat added: “The partnership with LeoSat will deliver faster and more reliable connectivity anyplace in the world. Our customers will be amongst the first users of these solutions, which will present enormous productivity and efficiency improvements over legacy satellite infrastructures”.

LeoSat is backed by leading satellite operators SKY Perfect JSAT and Hispasat, and the system is being developed in conjunction with Thales Alenia Space, a company with unmatched expertise in designing and manufacturing low earth orbit constellations. The high-throughput satellites (HTS) in the constellation will form a mesh network interconnected through laser links, creating an optical backbone in space which is about 1.5 times faster than terrestrial fiber backbones, thus creating a paradigm shift in the use of satellites for data connectivity – rather than a gap filler or last resort where no terrestrial alternative is available. LeoSat has already secured over 2 Billion USD in pre-launch customer agreements and was recently granted a license by the FCC to operate its network in the U.S.
