X2nSat Selects LeoSat’s Laser-Enabled Data Network to Support Healthcare Communications

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LeoSat Enterprises, which is launching a constellation of 108
low-earth-orbit communications satellites that will provide the fastest,
most secure and widest coverage data network in the world, today
announced that X2nSat,
the highly reliable satellite solutions provider, has selected LeoSat to
support new infrastructure solutions for the ever-expanding needs of the
healthcare industry.

X2nSat currently offers SatBlue, a proprietary line of voice and data
communications solutions tailored for the healthcare industry (including
data and internet redundancy, emergency response trailers and
telemedicine capabilities), which allows hospitals and medical office
buildings to customize communications solutions based on their existing
infrastructure, and to expand when the need for additional capabilities

Whether it is through telemedicine, video conferencing or transferring
medical records via broadband, hospitals and medical facilities have
unique needs when it comes to communications. Network reliability and
scalability are key for both service continuity and disaster recovery
plans. With healthcare, a back-up communications system not only keeps
the business running, it can help save lives.

With data volumes exploding, the increasing demand to move large
quantities of data quickly and securely around the world is fast
outpacing the infrastructure needed to carry it. LeoSat has developed a
unique system architecture – a space-based MPLS network – providing
Gigabits of secure connectivity with lower latencies than fiber,
opening-up new possibilities for Healthcare providers looking for
scalable, flexible solutions for their expanding networks.

Garrett Hill, CEO of X2nSat, said: “Technology is crucial to Healthcare.
With cloud computing and Big Data becoming more and more prominent,
healthcare providers are seeking a reliable, disaster-resistant backbone
for effective healthcare IT management. Satellite is the missing puzzle
piece for the delivery of reliable communication and data connectivity.
LeoSat’s unique high throughput, low latency and highly secure data
communications network will enable us to offer new data and voice
connectivity solutions and work closely with healthcare providers to
create effective disaster preparedness plans”.

As part of the agreement, Hill receives a designated seat on LeoSat’s
Customer Technical Advisory Committee, an institution created to
structure collaboration and exchange information surrounding the design,
configuration, production, and launch of the LeoSat satellite
constellation. Says Hill, “X2nSat’s Las Cruces, New Mexico Satellite
Gateway has been designed and optimized for high-throughput satellites,
and X2nSat is looking forward to collaborating with LeoSat on how best
to deliver the latest generation of solutions to our enterprise

Michael Abad-Santos, SVP Americas, LeoSat said: “Satellite is often seen
as a last resort for enterprise data communications. But with
capabilities beyond existing satellite and fiber, including transmission
speeds of 5.2 gigabits per second and latency of 20 milliseconds,
LeoSat’s infrastructure is what data communications has been waiting for
– a game-changing service which realizes the synergies of both worlds to
re-define connectivity in terms of capacity, latency, security,
efficiency and coverage. Using our unique backbone in space we
can provide fast and ultra-secure point-to-point data connections to and
from anywhere on earth without the need for any terrestrial landings”.

LeoSat is backed by leading satellite operators SKY Perfect JSAT and
Hispasat, and the system is being developed in conjunction with Thales
Alenia Space, a company with unmatched expertise in designing and
manufacturing low earth orbit constellations. The high-throughput
satellites (HTS) in the constellation will form a mesh network
interconnected through laser links, creating an optical backbone in
space which is about 1.5 times faster than terrestrial fiber backbones,
thus creating a paradigm shift in the use of satellites for data
connectivity – rather than a gap filler or last resort where no
terrestrial alternative is available. LeoSat has already secured over 2
Billion USD in pre-launch customer agreements and was recently granted a
license by the FCC to operate its network in the U.S. ENDS

About LeoSat Enterprises

LeoSat Enterprises was established to leverage the latest developments
in satellite communications technologies to develop and launch a new
low-earth-orbit satellite constellation which will provide the first
commercially available, business grade, extremely high-speed and secure
data service worldwide. With up to 108 low-earth-orbit communications
satellites in the constellation LeoSat is the first company to have all
the High Throughput Satellites (HTS) in the constellation interconnected
through laser links, creating an optical backbone in space which is
about 1.5 times faster than terrestrial fiber backbones and without the
need for any terrestrial touchpoints. This unique set of features
enables LeoSat to provide instant infrastructure from anywhere to
everywhere which is fast, secure and reliable.

Based in Washington DC, LeoSat is currently working with Thales Alenia
Space for the low-earth-orbit constellation of Ka-band communications
satellites. Once operational, the constellation will provide high-speed,
low-latency and highly secure communications and bandwidth for business
operations in the telecom backhaul, Energy, Maritime, Government and
international business markets. Launch of the constellation is expected
in 2020. www.leosat.com
