OneWeb Telecommunications startup has just ensured the critical power to radio waves required to launch the global satellite broadband network.
According to Bloomberg, the startup company backed by SoftBank is racing with billionaire Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk to bring a lot of small satellite beams to space. These satellite beams provide broadband such as 4G to places that are too costly to cover by network on the ground.
By receiving a consistent frequency of 90 days for six satellites in size by a washer, the OneWeb meets the need for spectroscopy by the United Nations International Telecommunication Union. His SpaceX company Musk and the Kuiper project of Bezos may also need the spectrum as OneWeb.
However, OneWeb said as the first airline to submit a request and confirmed, other operators should not have any intervention signals or coincide with OneWeb’s signals, as the rule of forcing the business to go back must protect the quality of service by a The airline ahead of supply.
The vice president of OneWeb’s regulations, Mr Ruth Pritchard-Kelly, said: “This means that other carriers have to go longer to reach their destination.” The British media surveillance agency Ofcom will require the International Telecommunication Union to register the OneWeb priority request on bandwidth.
His previous Startup was mobilized US $3.4 billion from many shareholders, including SoftBank, Airbus, Qualcomm and Virgin Corp. Of the British billionaire Richard Branson. The airline is projected to launch 30 satellites each month from 12.2018 to create a satellite beam originally comprising 648 satellites. Since these small satellites are far closer to earth than conventional satellite models, they promise a much lower transmission delay than the current satellite broadband offerings.
SpaceX is also going fast in the space Internet race. The airline launched dozens of satellites on the orbit for the Starlink project and was preparing to launch more satellites this year. The U.S. government has approved the SpaceX 12,000 satellite launcher. The Kuiper project has not yet launched any satellites.
