Fifth generation smart terminal converges satellite and mobile
ALL.SPACE, formerly Isotropic Systems, is announcing the fifth generation ‘smart terminal’, which is moving into initial production for release at the end of 2022. The software-defined service enablement platform can connect with all networks, satellite and cellular, via multiple, simultaneous, full performance links that converge intelligent routing, edge computing, integrated modems, and cellular access.
Headquartered in Reading, UK, ALL.SPACE is recognised for its major industry breakthrough as the first and only field-proven platform to simultaneously deliver full-performance connections across all significant orbits from a single device. The company recently concluded live field tests with the US and UK governments and several satellite operators demonstrating multiple, simultaneous connections across LEO, MEO and GEO orbits. It is the only technology platform to prove this capability in a single device and empowers users to harness the full benefits of new satellite constellations.
ALL.SPACE has extended this capability to converge advanced communications over multiple networks and operators, with 3G, 4G and 5G cellular multi-network integration plug-and-play options. The platform’s unique ability to connect all satellite operators across all orbits and all cellular operators across all available networks creates the world’s most convergent communications platform. A force multiplier, the smart terminal is designed to unlock the power of any combination of cellular and satellite networks enabling unparalleled service and experience levels.
The company is pioneering the smart terminal segment and moving the industry beyond multiple antennas and terminals for different networks. It delivers a fully reconfigurable and flexible platform that converges infrastructure, networks, edge computing, intelligent routing, and software-defined capabilities all through one device.
Commenting on the milestone announcement, John Finney, Founder and CEO, of ALL.SPACE said: “With the growing capabilities of the next generation of satellite NGSO and HTS ecosystems, and the pressing need to connect satellites in different orbits, we have created the next chapter for the all-important ground segment. We are leading the industry to the fifth generation of ground systems with our smart terminals. This will be a catalyst for a whole new era of communications, defined by multiple full-performance connections, power and waveform integration, computing, resource control, and intelligent routing that enables a range of value-added software-defined services. These services deliver edge-based intelligence, decision making, and operational efficiency capabilities to our customers.”
ALL.SPACE will be the first company in the world to release smart terminals at the end of this year, shipping to a significant backlog of commercial and NATO defense customers, all their communication capabilities to take advantage of multiple networks and operators across the globe all through a single device.
The company’s mission is to unlock new markets demanding next-generation satellite services through all forms of intelligent, software-enabled, multi-link, multi-orbit, and multi-domain convergence. The smart terminal will significantly impact the future of communications by delivering ubiquitous connectivity to remote locations on land, in the air and at sea. This game-changing product opens new opportunities for a broad range of businesses and markets, including defense, aero, maritime telecom, rail, and government.
