Rivada Space Networks GmbH continues to work on the launch of a constellation of 600 LEO communications satellites for corporate data communications.
Rivada Space Networks was created by the American company Rivada Networks, with a wireless technology entrepreneur Declan Ganley forming the company to provide a single solution for secure, global, end-to-end enterprise and government connectivity that will directly address specific customer needs not met by current technology.
The company will offer access to secure satellite networks with pole-to-pole reach, offering end-to-end latencies similar to or better than terrestrial fiber. The Rivada network will function as an optical backbone in space, using lasers to interconnect satellites to provide an ultra-secure and highly reliable global data network for commercial operations in the telecommunications, enterprise, marine, energy and government services. The constellation’s unique architecture, high speed and low latency, combined with Rivada’s dynamic pricing and open access technology, will also enable Internet access to remote and underserved areas where no link is unavailable. is currently available.
Rivada Space Networks will leverage terrestrial wireless technologies from parent company Rivada Networks Inc. to optimize network utilization and facilitate the buying and selling of broadband capacity. The company’s patented technologies, including Dynamic Spectrum Arbitration and Free access will enable efficient use of the spectrum and provide customers with ultimate flexibility.
Germany-based Rivada Space Networks is making rapid progress with the acquisition of a LEO network of 600 Ka-band communication satellites. The company is currently undertaking an RFI with major satellite manufacturers to finalize the system design and manufacturing plan, paving the way for production and deployment of the entire constellation.
Founder of Rivada Space Networks Declan Ganley mentioned, “Our goal is to leverage the unique strengths of low-latency satellite communication to deliver an enterprise-grade, on-demand experience anywhere in the world from any platform. Rivada Space Networks will not only provide a competitive advantage, but will also help expand these markets by providing new opportunities through previously unavailable levels of performance combined with global reach. When wireless technologies converge with satellite on a single, highly secure network, you get the best of both worlds..”
Rivada Space Networks GmbH is a disruptive new company set to establish and operate the world’s first low-latency point-to-point connectivity network of LEO satellites. By connecting its satellites with lasers, Rivada Space Networks will provide resellers and B2B customers the ability to securely connect any two points on the globe with low latency and high bandwidth. The constellation of 600 communications satellites in low Earth orbit will represent a fundamental shift in the availability of secure, global, end-to-end enterprise-grade connectivity for the telecom, enterprise, marine, energy markets and government services. Founded by Declan Ganley, Rivada Networks, Inc. is active in North and South America as well as Europe. Rivada holds a multitude of patents relating to spectrum sharing, digital spectrum arbitration, priority messaging, open access services and other wireless communication technologies.
