Committed to the Future of Connectivity

Our name, Ligado, means “connected.” Making connections is at the core of our mission.

Achieving the 5G future will require a “network of networks” – distinct networks working together in close harmony to serve diverse IoT applications. With nationwide spectrum in the lower mid-band and North American mobile satellite coverage, Ligado Networks is developing innovative solutions to accelerate 5G deployments to serve the industrial sector.

Recognizing that delivering ultra-reliable connectivity to the industrial sector requires more than a one-size-fits-all approach to mobile networks, Ligado is taking a first-of-its-kind, innovative approach to provide industrial companies with seamless satellite and terrestrial connectivity while also retaining full network flexibility and control.

Ligado and its partners are developing technical plans to leverage new 5G capabilities for flexible use of its greenfield spectrum and Ligado’s powerful SkyTerra 1 satellite, which is specifically designed to provide robust mobile connectivity to small, low-power devices throughout North America.

With our combination of satellite technology and plans to deploy Custom Private Networks for the businesses that keep this country running, we’re paving the way for future innovations.
