Rivada Space Networks, fresh with the positive news from the ITU’s Radio Regulations Board that its planned launches for two 300 satellite constellations can go ahead, has announced a partnership with IEC Telecom for land and maritime connectivity.

Rivada is seeking business for its ‘OuterNet’ satellite scheme and supplying large quantities of data to government as well as corporate clients.

Rivada says: “The communications landscape is developing rapidly with providers now able to offer first-generation low earth orbit (LEO) satellite connectivity. But not all LEO networks are created equal and what Rivada is now providing is the first true “OuterNET”: a global 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 with the ability to securely connect any two points on the globe with low latency and high bandwidth.”

“This partnership supports IEC Telecom’s commitment to pursue innovation for the best customer experience. Rivada’s service will allow us to expand our network’s SLA and offer high-throughput data connectivity ‘Fiber-like’ in the sky versus DSL-like today,” said Erwan Emilian, CEO & Partner at IEC Telecom Group. He added: “We are excited to explore cost-effective packages for the humanitarian sector and test the resilience of maritime connectivity in the open sea. We are confident that Rivada is on its way to becoming a key market player in the satcom world.”

Rivada is also on record as saying that it is adequately financed for 2023 and this includes stage payments lined up for Terran Orbital which is building Rivada’s satellite fleet.
