Ultra-Reliability and Control
for Next-Generation Networks
Ligado Networks is creating innovative commercial and technology solutions, delivering highly-secure and ultra-reliable communications over Custom Private Networks, all to accelerate investment in and deployment of 5G networks.
As the wireless industry develops its technology roadmap to meet the broad requirements of the 5G future, mobile networks that once operated independently must now work in close harmony to deliver innovations that go beyond voice quality improvements and higher data speeds. In addition, connectivity providers need to embrace new operating models for wireless deployment and network management. That’s why Ligado is working with industry leaders to deploy flexible and secure Custom Private Networks and 5G IoT solutions.
5G requires the right mix of available spectrum in all band categories to support super-fast data speeds, high-density traffic applications, and ultra-reliable, low-latency communications. These unique capabilities require unique spectrum assets that leverage each band’s core deployment strength. Ligado Networks represents 40 MHz of newly available spectrum, 35 MHz of which is now fully approved by the FCC for terrestrial use, with an additional 5 MHz awaiting further consideration by the FCC. Ligado’s greenfield spectrum in the lower mid-band will help accelerate the deployment of broad-based 5G network coverage.
Ligado’s powerful SkyTerra 1 Satellite is specifically designed to provide robust mobile connectivity to small, low-power devices throughout North America. As part of the 5G future, our satellite network will meet the critical IoT requirements of service ubiquity, service continuity, and service scalability.
"Ligado is fully prepared to play a key role in building the very best networks to serve the demands of critical industries and advance the next generation of American infrastructure.”Ivan Seidenberg
