Globalsat Group to add Rivada LEO connectivity to its Americas coverage

Globalsat Group, a provider of mission-critical satellite and wireless connectivity solutions is partnering with satellite network operator Rivada Space Networks to provide access to a next-generation data network for customers in the energy, government, NGO, agriculture, utilities and transportation sectors throughout the Americas and beyond.

Rivada's OuterNET, as the forthcoming Rivada service is known, will, say the partners, offer high-speed, low-latency and highly secure connectivity with full global coverage. The first satellite launch of Rivada's OuterNET is set for 2025, with global service starting in 2026.

Globalsat is an industry leader in mobile and other satellite services, providing specialised voice, data, M2M/IoT, software, and hardware throughout the Americas since 1999. Most customers use its services where life or infrastructure are at stake or in exceptional circumstances when or where other connectivity networks cannot operate reliably or at all.

Globalsat says increasing demand for resilient connectivity is fast outpacing the current infrastructure used to carry it in terms of latency, bandwidth, speed and security.

Which, it seems, is where Rivada comes in. Rivada's global low-latency point-to-point connectivity network of 600 low earth orbit (LEO) satellites, the OuterNET, is described as a unique next-generation architecture combining inter-satellite laser links with advanced onboard processing that provides unique routing and switching capabilities to create an optical mesh network in space.

This approach to ‘orbital networking’, in which data stays in space from origin to destination, is described as creating an ultra-secure satellite network with global coverage, offering end-to-end latencies much lower than terrestrial fibre over similar long distances. And by routing traffic on a physically separated network, it provides a layer of defence for any organisation that needs to securely share data over a large distribution of sites.

Globalsat Group says it will add Rivada's OuterNET seamless connectivity to its diverse roster of mission-critical solutions, as an option to ramp up performance and increase customer efficiency. This connectivity is particularly well suited to remote geographic installation use cases requiring real-time applications and monitoring regardless of location, when high bandwidth, reduced latency and improved security are required.
