Isotropic Systems, the next-generation satellite terminal provider, has announced it will be developing a OneWeb compatible Ultra Low-Cost Consumer Broadband terminal, the company said.
OneWeb´s constellation will have the highest throughput of any planned constellation and will support the most customers on its mission to bridge the digital divide. This is a natural fit for Isotropic Systems´ technology which can achieve the low price points needed to make the high speed, low-latency capabilities of OneWeb available to the world´s unserved.
Isotropic Systems´ transformational optical technology will produce the first low-cost, fully electronic tracking terminal, enabling broadband quality service to help OneWeb bridge the digital divide. Isotropic Systems will build a high-throughput LEO terminal tailored to OneWeb´s consumer broadband service requirements, within a price range that will make broadband service affordable to consumers. Isotropic Systems plans to release its first terminals in 2019, in time for OneWeb´s entry into service.
Isotropic Systems´ pioneering, fully scanning terminal will offer seamless handover and unlimited instantaneous bandwidth. Requiring just 10% of the power of conventional terminals, the Isotropic design is tailored to meet the specific gain performance over scan and price point specified by OneWeb.
Isotropic Systems is developing the world´s most spectrally efficient, low-profile antennas that are conformal, multi-band and electronically steerable. The company´s team of industry experts and scientists has reached a major breakthrough in technology and innovative antenna design.
