Next Generation Networks
Powering Industrial IoT
Ligado Networks is creating innovative commercial and technology solutions delivering highly-secure and ultra-reliable communications over Custom Private Networks, all to accelerate 5G and the emerging Industrial Internet of Things.
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 Custom Private Networks and 5G IoT solutions for the industrial sector.
To make the 5G vision a reality, it is more crucial than ever to have available spectrum in all band categories. 5G will need the right mix of available spectrum 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’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.
"As mobile networks evolve to accelerate 5G and Industrial IoT solutions, Ligado's vision for Custom Private Networks represents a new approach combining superior performance, innovative spectrum use, and flexible network management to serve the demands of critical industries and advance the next-generation of American infrastructure."Ivan Seidenberg
