In the not too distant future, Managed Networks Services in space will come into reality. Based on laser technology, the communications infrastructure in space will resemble the terrestrial infrastructure of today providing earth to space and space to space high speed communications.
NASA has taken the lead in driving the vision for a commercial market for laser-based, fully interoperable IP-based communications services in space. As the commercial demand for satellite-based applications and services evolves in LEO and GEO and along with anticipated deep space exploration, laser-based high speed communications services will be necessary. Resulting in an ecosystem of interoperable technology vendors and services.
At Cloud Constellation Corporation, as our vision for SpaceBelt™ cloud services in space becomes a reality we believe a robust market for laser-based commercial managed network services will replace today’s RF-based communications services…just as fiber has replaced the T1 on Earth.
