Indian space tech startup company, Vestaspace Technology, is planning to launch a constellation of over 35 satellites across India in a bid to build 5G network connections and IoT functionalities across various industries.
The company is planning to launch a beta version of its satellite constellation in September this year. It will launch the fully operational satellite constellation into the Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) or Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) in early 2021.
The move is aimed at replacing the traditional fiber networks with the satellite constellation that will provide high-speed 5G network connection using unmanned Software Data processing. To achieve this, Vestaspace has come with a concept of services wherein a user can uplink and downlink the data while browsing the internet. The company also envisages 10 layers of security Firewall being put in place to avoid any illegitimate or fraudulent actions.
“To solve the complex system and to provide 5G internet network solutions to the Urban, Rural and unserved regions, we have positioned 8 Ground Stations and 31,000 data receptors all over India. This is made possible with the help of accurate positioning and telemetry related activities,” Arun Kumar Sureban Vestaspace Founder & CEO said in a statement.
“We are on a mission to make space accessible to everyone who once thought satellites were rocket science,” he added.
