Bringing the Network of Networks to Life
Ligado and its technology partners are developing technical and commercial plans supporting broad-based 5G coverage deployments and private networks for the industrial sector. 3GPP standardization of the Ligado spectrum band will enable support by chipset designers, device manufacturers, equipment infrastructure providers, and network operators in the 5G “network of networks.”
Custom Private Networks
Companies looking to enable reliable and secure Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions need more than a one-size-fits-all approach to connectivity. The emerging 5G and IoT markets require a network built for specific use cases and physical location requirements. Custom Private Networks from Ligado will combine the benefits of secure, licensed spectrum with seamless satellite and terrestrial connectivity—customers receive superior performance while retaining full network flexibility and control.
Standards-Based Satellite IoT
Satellite IoT protocols based on widely adopted mobile industry standards will provide critical IoT endpoints the ubiquitous coverage and ultra-reliable connectivity that enables seamless operation across both mobile satellite and terrestrial networks. Economies of scale that have not previously been realized within the satellite device ecosystem will drive down device costs, promoting wider adoption of satellite technology as a key component of the 5G “network of networks”
Value Added Services
Emerging applications in unmanned systems and High-Precision Location promise to transform how industries perform business-critical operations. Ligado’s ability to seamlessly integrate these value-added services with our connectivity solutions will speed this transformation.
Where land-based communications do not exist or when they are damaged, destroyed or congested in a disaster situation, Ligado MSAT Voice and Push-To-Talk services get the job done. Search and rescue teams; police and firefighters; maritime and fishing fleets; work crews and drivers for utilities, railroads, trucking and off-road racing teams all rely on the Ligado MSAT-G2 Mobile Satellite Radio to stay in touch when communications are critical.
