Rivada's first-of-its-kind LEO constellation will offer access to a secure satellite network with pole-to-pole reach, offering end-to-end latencies similar to or better than terrestrial fiber. The RSN satellite architecture combines inter-satellite laser links with advanced onboard data routers to create an optical mesh network in space. This approach to "orbital networking," delivers a highly secure data network by routing traffic on a physically separated network, providing a layer of defense for any organization that needs to securely share data over long distances. It is a unique capability for business operations in the telecom, enterprise, maritime, energy and government services markets.
Network Innovations' initial cooperation with RSN will include the formation of an advisory board to exchange information on technical support and explore joint marketing and promotional initiatives. Network Innovations aims to become a key reseller of RSN's unique connectivity for the government and enterprise sectors.
"Early on, Rivada has positioned itself as a disruptive leader in the global satellite industry, and we are thrilled to sign this MoU agreement with them," said Frank Czulo, president of Network Innovations Advanced Networks division. "Moreover, we see this as a symbol of two great companies cooperating to bring the best possible solutions to our customers."
Declan Ganley, CEO, Rivada Space Networks, said: "With our manufacturing and launch-services agreements in place, we are seeing strong demand from our customer base, and are moving ahead at full speed with our partners to deliver our ground-breaking constellation." He added: "Network providers are now seeing the unique opportunities our constellations provide and we are delighted to be working with Network Innovations, a leading global technology integrator for the government and enterprise sectors. Both of our companies see the importance of providing ultra secure, highly reliable low latency communications anywhere on the globe."
