Affordable, Quality Internet Everywhere
Telesat has developed a highly innovative global network composed of 298 state-of-the-art Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, seamlessly integrated with on-ground data networks.
With our 50-year heritage of technical expertise, strong record of innovation, and priority Ka-band spectrum rights, Telesat will deliver the most advanced network with unmatched speed and performance.
Data Processing in Space
Phased Array Antennas
Optical Inter-satellite Links
Gigabits per second speeds to a remote, and multiple Tbps of capacity in the network ensures enterprise-grade connectivity anywhere in the world.
The Lightspeed Network is about 20-times more responsive than today’s geosynchronous satellites and on par with fiber networks.
Flexible & Focused
Our intelligent network can dynamically allocate bandwidth to areas with high traffic demand such as large communities or airport hubs.
Highly resilient, secure network with multiple inter-connected satellites and ground nodes without any single point of failure ensures networks always stay connected.
Lightspeed technology is more cost-effective for ubiquitous reach than fiber and microwave alternatives. Our disruptive pricing empowers customers to expand their coverage and propel their growth.
Quick Service Deployment
Compliant with Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) standards for seamless plug-and-play integration.
Telesat is testing and working with leading manufacturers to ensure that cost-effective, high-performing customer terminals are available to access the Lightspeed network. Lightspeed will fully support both electronically steered antennas (ESAs) and mechanically steered antennas for commercial, government, and defence markets including requirements for land, land-mobile, aeronautical, maritime, and other platforms.
Lightspeed terminals will be easy to deploy, will self acquire the satellite network and will provide Gbps capacity with Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) compliant interfaces for seamless integration to the terrestrial network.
Telesat’s first Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite was launched in January, 2018 and is now supporting live demonstrations across a variety of markets and applications. Live demonstrations allow Telesat customers and LEO hardware vendors test low-latency, high throughput performance, satellite tracking and Doppler compensation.
