LEO Satellite Constellations: Telesat Canada Aims for Global Leadership

By: Lawrence SurteesResearch Vice President, Communications

Abstract

This IDC Perspective investigates global Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellations to extend high-speed broadband internet and wireless to unserved areas.

"Renewed interest in Low Earth Orbit satellite constellations has resulted in a new space race," says Lawrence Surtees, report author and vice president, Communications Research at IDC Canada. The planned launch of more than a dozen LEO constellations within the next five years to extend high-speed broadband internet and wireless to unserved areas coincides with deployment of next-generation high-speed 5G wireless. "Telesat Canada has emerged as a key player and is in a strong position to compete with the largest well-healed new entrants," said Surtees.
