Sateliot is a satellite operator which plans to release a huge constellation of small or Nanosatellites for universalizing the IoT with coverage of 5G. The Spanish government has provided provisional authorization to the Sateliot through Mineco for starting the 5G-IoT services. The authorization enables multiple terrestrial terminals present in various points of peninsular geography for connection to all signals given by the satellite, which Sateliot has released in space during March from the Soyuz rocket.
The 5G communications rise represents a disruptive element for enabling the vision of global IoT. A key feature of 5G communication is an emphasis on heterogeneous access technology integration, including the systems of satellite communication. The price reduction, native broadcast capabilities, and huge coverage ensure that satellite communication is better positioned for complementing terrestrial networks. Thus, satellites have a major role in offering ubiquitous coverage in remote areas. After the authorization, the company has everything to carry forward its mission and start its testing phase in a real environment.
It will start the testing phase with entities that have a collaboration agreement with Sateliot. These include Alen Space, who has developed the satellite’s payload, IEEC, who has worked on several use cases, and various other organizations involved in the research and development project. The technical test results in the upcoming months will deliver Sateliot with the necessary information. Such information consists of the integral design and evolution of the Nanosatellite constellation that is scheduled to begin providing commercial services by 2023.
Sateliot is a telecommunication operator that provides continuous and global connectivity to every element of the IoT universe. It includes the connected home or car under the protocol of 5G. Due to the Nanosatellites constellation present at lower altitudes and working as mobile towers, Sateliot is able to provide the necessary infrastructure for extending the coverage where even terrestrial technologies cannot reach.
The Spanish government’s provisional authorization has allowed Sateliot to use the orbit-spectrum or the UHF band. The company is going to start its first tests using this spectrum. Orbit-spectrum resources need to be allocated by ITU, and satellite operators like Sateliot should apply for the resource first and get licensed to operate their satellites in the area where they want to transmit. Hence, once the Ministry provides provisional authorization, the company will then initiate the steps to get relevant licenses from other countries. But the first step is the test execution and demonstrating the user cases all across the globe.
The company is focusing on developing satellites that are completely compatible with the standards of 5G for the internet of things. It will offer telecom operators full coverage of 5G IoT networks in wholesale modes. As per Sateliot’s CEO, Jaume Sanpera, the provisional authorization obtained from the Spanish Ministry enables their project to begin its testing phase. It will start to materialize more in the upcoming weeks, and after that, it will be extended across the entire world. In the coming times, it will attain its complete development and all commercial operations in the year 2023.
