“Home-like” Internet on the High Seas
Telesat is revolutionizing connectivity at sea through its advanced network architecture. With true global coverage designed to serve all routes including emerging polar routes, our secure network allows for reliable real-time connectivity for cruise, yacht, merchant shipping, and oil and gas. Our state-of-the-art satellite fleet, engineering excellence, and industry-leading technical expertise help to deliver home-like internet to passengers anywhere and unparalleled operational connectivity for ship-to-shore sensor and positioning information.
Global ‘Virtual Fibre’ Service Optimized for Maritime Connectivity
Telesat Lightspeed, our advanced, global Low Earth Orbit network, will meet the unique remote-to-shore connectivity requirements critical to the modern maritime industry. From the “moving city” nature of cruise ships to unique operational needs of merchant shipping, Lightspeed offers multiple Gbps link speeds and Tbps of capacity to meet passenger demand. Low latency allows for seamless VPN access, encrypted web page access, e-commerce and entertainment applications, as well as real-time internet streaming for crew morale and welfare.
Our low-latency network coupled with gigabits per second link speeds is 20X more responsive than today’s satellites, delivering secure, unsurpassed performance for ship to shore communications, crew welfare, semi-autonomous operations and passenger connectivity.
True Global Coverage
Every point on Earth is covered so your network at sea never loses connectivity, even when traveling through northern latitudes. Our intelligent network understands your shipping and passenger routes and can dynamically allocate additional bandwidth to areas with high traffic or busy sea ports so your connectivity never gets throttled.
Highly resilient network with multiple interconnected satellites and ground nodes eliminates any single point of failure, ensuring your network is always on.
