LightSquared in the News
ViaSat and LightSquared have joined forces to deliver a unique ecosystem designed to deliver broadcast and multicast data transport and embedded voice services over a highly secure network for a broad range of land, maritime and aviation applications. The service will combine the power of LightSquared’s state-of-the-art SkyTerra 1 L-band satellite with ViaSat’s secure, all-IP, true packet-switched satellite technology.
A key differentiator for the L-band Managed Service, ViaSat has demonstrated 1 Mbps throughput over LightSquared’s SkyTerra 1 satellite to small terminals in both fixed locations and mobile applications at speeds up to 65 mph.
More than 3,100 fixed-site M2M and airborne terminals have already been pre-ordered that will operate starting next year over ViaSat’s enhanced worldwide L-band network using LightSquared’s SkyTerra 1 satellite capacity. ViaSat’s new mobile satellite services (MSS) network uses an innovative L-band waveform optimized for high capacity communications that provide highly secure, reliable and rugged satellite-based global services for government, enterprise and commercial users.
Tell government officials that broadband access and spectrum scarcity are serious issues that must be addressed today.
