Lynk (formerly UbiquitiLink) has successfully completed initial space-to-ground tests of the fundamental technology required to provide connectivity for cell phone users virtually anywhere on the globe using low-earth-orbit nanosatellites. Lynk’s technology allows standard cell phones, without any changes in hardware or software, to be connected everywhere, seamlessly shifting from a terrestrial tower to a satellite overhead.
The Lynk network will provide connectivity with existing cell phones in the most isolated areas, providing a safety net to people in remote locations, whether it’s on the high seas or high in a mountain range. The network will also give relief agencies and first-responders a highly reliable means of communication when terrestrial networks are down following natural and man-made disasters. The company is based in Falls Church, Virginia, and is led by a team of satellite and wireless industry veterans.
