Ligado Networks is uniquely capable of providing critical communications that are pervasive, highly secure and ultra-reliable. By seamlessly combining mobile satellite and ground-based capabilities, Ligado can serve mission-critical Internet of Things (IoT) and the emerging 5G market.
Ligado provides highly dependable and secure satellite communications throughout North America via strategic partnerships with technology and service providers. No other commercial mobile satellite provider in North America has the capability of our 22-meter antenna — the largest reflector in service on a commercial satellite. This diameter enables high-quality connectivity as well as higher data transmissions for smaller next-generation mobile devices.
Our plan is to combine the benefits of satellite coverage with the capacity of a ground-based network. The result would be next-generation connectivity that is pervasive, highly secure and ultra-reliable for our customer base of critical industries: transportation, public safety and energy. Ligado’s advanced mobile network will ensure flexibility for connecting different types of new devices and enabling mission-critical applications that require high levels of reliability and robustness.
Ligado can uniquely provide the critical industries we serve seamless connectivity anywhere, all the time. Think things that move – such as trains, planes and automobiles. Our advanced satellite-terrestrial network will provide this service for applications ranging from high-value industrial automation and remote monitoring of infrastructure and operations, to drone inspection and emergency response management. Such applications will result in significantly improved industrial efficiency, increased worker safety, and optimized critical infrastructure serving business and government.
“As mobile networks in the United States evolve to serve the emerging 5G market, Ligado’s vision for an advanced network — one that will enable satellite and terrestrial use of mid-band spectrum — represents an innovative way to accelerate delivery of next-generation connectivity to serve the demands of mission-critical industries that benefit our entire country.”Ivan Seidenberg
