Supernet Chooses LeoSat for High-Speed Data Network

LeoSat Enterprises, which is launching a constellation of up to 108 low-earth orbit communications satellites, has entered into a strategic agreement with Supernet, Pakistan´s satellite network service provider and systems integrator, specializing in end-to-end satellite based GSM backhaul and enterprise networks, the company said.

Through this agreement, LeoSat will provide Supernet with over 3 Gbps of capacity on its unique low earth orbit (LEO) network infrastructure. LeoSat´s network combines the speed of fiber with the ubiquity of satellite ideal for cellular and enterprise networks, enabling Supernet to offer a full portfolio of local to global integrated communications solutions to facilitate the key business processes of corporate, SME and individual customers.

As cellular protocols become more and more sophisticated and cellular use accelerates, there is an ever- increasing need to transport cellular signals for long distances, at high speeds, in high volume and native form. For existing and emerging market telecom operators, LeoSat offers significant advantages as its latency, timing and transport are in compliance with the network standards of the newer 4G, 5G and LTE cellular systems.

LeoSat´s system with lower latency and stronger end-to-end security compared to traditional satellite and terrestrial solutions used today is achieved through a unique architecture utilizing inter-satellite laser links, creating an optical backbone in space with fiber-like symmetry at gigabit per second speeds. It also provides unprecedented security as the data is encrypted from end-to-end across the network, with no terrestrial touch points.

LeoSat is currently working with Thales Alenia Space, a company with unmatched expertise in designing and manufacturing LEO satellites, to finalize the manufacturing plan, paving the way for the production and deployment of the entire constellation.

LeoSat Enterprises was established to leverage the latest developments in satellite communications technologies to develop and launch a new low-earth-orbit satellite constellation which will provide the first commercially available, business grade, extremely high-speed and secure data service worldwide.

Supernet Limited, Pakistan´s satellite network service provider and systems integrator, specializes in providing end to end satellite based GSM backhaul networks. Supernet products and services also include a broad spectrum of Wide Area Network (WAN) and Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) solutions based on satellite, fiber optics, microwave radio and internet.
