The Space Race is on. Connecting the Unconnected.

In today’s fast-paced business environment, continuous and high-speed connectivity is essential. It supports critical functions like video calls, file transfers, and more. The limits of cable and fiber networks present real challenges. Laying cable may be impossible due to terrain or accessibility issues, or there may not be a sufficient customer base to justify the investment.

Companies like SpaceX and Amazon are competing to launch large constellations of low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites to provide Internet access, everywhere. LEO satellites result in lower latency due to the shorter distance traveled, reduced power demands, and increased flexibility. Unlike GEO satellites, LEO technology doesn’t necessitate a fixed connection point, enhancing adaptability.

LEO for Disaster Recovery

Disaster planning presents organizations with a challenging dilemma. Maintaining reliable communication is vital for staying connected with staff and customers after a catastrophic event. But communication suffers as one of the initial consequences when disaster strikes.

Earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, and fires frequently disrupt traditional telecom systems, causing extensive infrastructure damage, power outages, and network jams. Infrastructure damage leaves many users without phone, Wi-Fi, or internet services.

In such scenarios, satellite communications offer a more dependable alternative. Space-based satellites remain unaffected providing the communication resilience necessary for maintaining contact.

NWN Carousel works with many state and local agencies providing public safety recovery services in CA, FL, TX, and beyond.  We also work with enterprise customers who are building resilient connectivity strategies.
