LeoSat Enterprises entered into an agreement with Skyband, a member of the Inteltec Group and a communications provider of satellite and networking solutions in Saudi Arabia. Skyband will use LeoSat to upgrade its existing satellite solutions, giving customers access to a low-latency network.
According to the release, LeoSat’s system of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) communications satellites can achieve lower latency and stronger end-to-end security compared to traditional satellite and terrestrial solutions. This is achieved through a system architecture utilizing optical inter-satellite laser links which connect the satellites, while providing security as the data is encrypted from end-to-end across the network, with no terrestrial touch points.
“Global Enterprises today require instant infrastructure from anywhere to everywhere which is fast, secure and reliable,” said LeoSat Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) Ronald van der Breggen. “So LeoSat is taking data networking into space, setting a new bar for high speed data connectivity. With capabilities beyond satellite and fiber, including transmission speeds of 10 plus gigabits per second and latency of 20 milliseconds, LeoSat’s infrastructure is what data communications has been waiting for — a game-changing service which realizes the synergies of both worlds to re-define connectivity in terms of capacity, latency, security, efficiency and coverage. For companies such as Skyband looking to provide innovative connectivity solutions, LeoSat can help to open-up new markets and deliver business growth.”
