Leaf Space enables Sateliot to scale without significant capex in the ground segment

This partnership underscores the strength of the European space ecosystem and provides Sateliot with scalability and redundancy mechanisms.

Sateliot, the first company to operate a low-Earth orbit (LEO) nanosatellite constellation with 5G IoT standards and that extends coverage of Mobile Telecom Operators to any place in the planet, has successfully integrated its satellite communication stack with Leaf Space’s Ground Segment as a Service (GSaaS) Network.

This milestone is crucial for the upcoming Transporter-11 mission by SpaceX, during which Sateliot will launch four new 6U satellites to further global 5G IoT connectivity.

Leaf Space’s GSaaS ensures that Sateliot’s constellation can scale efficiently, providing redundancy and robust support for continuous operations. The distributed network of 23 ground stations worldwide supports over 100 satellites, offering seamless coverage and reliability.

By using Leaf Space’s network as a 5G point of presence, Sateliot aims to revolutionize IoT connectivity, allowing seamless switching from terrestrial to satellite networks with unmodified commercial devices. This partnership underscores the strength of the European space ecosystem, with both companies leveraging their expertise to drive innovation and connectivity on a global scale.

First Contact and Mission Operations: Upon launch, the new 6U satellites will establish contact using Leaf Space’s In-orbit check-in service during the Launch and Early Orbit Phase (LEOP). This service ensures reliable communication from deployment, leveraging Leaf Space’s geographically diverse network.

“We are thrilled to support Sateliot’s 5G NB-IoT satellites in orbit,” said Jonata Puglia, CEO of Leaf Space. “Our global network is performing at its full potential and is ready to support satellites during the upcoming Transporter-11 launch and the commencement of their IoT services.”

Jaume Sanpera, CEO of Sateliot, added:

“It is a remarkable progress for the Space ecosystem in Europe. We are demonstrating end-to-end services that ensure seamless global IoT connectivity, showcasing the power of collaboration and technological advancement within our industry.”
