IODSRivada Space Networks has announced a series of new partners in the Asia Pacific region for its network of of 600 low-earth-orbit satellites (LEO). Rivada has now lined up over $US9 billion of business globally for its LEO network.

Rivada’s so-called “outernet” is transformative, the company said. A global low-latency point-to-point network of 600 low earth orbit (LEO) satellites, it is a unique next-generation constellation combining inter-satellite laser links with advanced onboard processing and routing to create a ubiquitous optical mesh network in space. This “orbital network,” in which data stays in space from origin to destination, creates an ultra-secure, private satellite network with pole-to-pole coverage, offering end-to-end latencies much lower than terrestrial fibre over long distances. And by routing traffic on a physically separated network, it provides a layer of defence for any enterprise or government organization that needs to securely share data across Asia and beyond.

For enterprise and government customers, the key attributes of the outernet are ideal for a variety of applications, for example, to give banks and global companies secured networks with distributed offices, provide significantly more bandwidth for oil & gas exploration than is available today, enable seamless connectivity for shipping & fleet management, or provide 5G satellite backhaul connectivity network expansion for cellular operators. Connectivity providers in Asia can offer a competitive advantage by expanding these markets, enabling new opportunities through secure, multi-gigabit bi-directional performance, combined with worldwide reach.

  • KT SAT – Korea
    KT SAT, Korea’s national satellite communications provider will deploy Rivada’s outernet to provide ultra-secure connectivity to Enterprise, Government and Maritime companies looking for scalable and resilient solutions for their expanding networks. And with Asia’s subsea cables increasingly becoming a focal point of geopolitical tensions, the region now, more than ever, needs resilient infrastructure, which is fast, secure, and reliable.
  • Connecto Network Systems Inc. (CNSI) – Philippines
    Connecto Network Systems Inc, will work with Rivada to improve connectivity for enterprise and government customers across the Philippines, ensuring seamless coverage, even in remote provinces. Connecto is spearheading the transformation of communities into smart cities, harnessing cutting-edge technologies to boost operational efficiency, facilitate public access to information and elevate the quality of government services.
  • NiAT – Brunei
    NiAT is a key provider of connectivity services for the Oil & Gas sector in Brunei. The company is experiencing an increased demand for high bandwidth connectivity from its customer base and sees Rivada’s outernet as the ideal solution to provide enterprise-grade, secure bandwidth combined with the high availability and guaranteed Service-Level-Agreements which underpins business for premium customers.
  • AT Communications – Japan
    AT Communications provides national agencies with secure communications infrastructure for their sites across Japan and supports telcos with international connectivity. AT Communications will harness the outernet’s seamless connectivity to ramp up performance, improve security, and increase customer efficiency. Rivada’s outernet is particularly well suited for the low latency and secure connectivity required by national and local government and defence sectors.
  • Teleport Access Services – Taiwan
    TAS will deploy Rivada’s outernet to enhance the connectivity infrastructure in Taiwan, providing coverage of remote and underserved areas and ushering in a new era of secure communications and technological innovation. For telecoms services providers, government agencies and media companies, the deployment of LEO satellite services in Taiwan will drive positive change and empower communities through enhanced connectivity.

Declan Ganley, CEO of Rivada Space Networks, said: “We are seeing a huge uptake in our business in Asia, underlining the growing appetite for our unique space-based network. The outernet’s ability to meet the requirements of Asia’s connectivity providers in terms of security, latency, capacity, and coverage is a game-changer for the region. Our completely new type of LEO constellation will provide the whole of Asia with a transformative next-generation infrastructure for secure, resilient communications and network expansion.”
