20 Jan 2022: Transcelestial has partnered with Hong Kong-based systems integrator, Cyber On-Air, to introduce its wireless laser communications to new industries including fixed and mobile network operators, government, education, hospitality, retail, transportation and small to medium enterprises.
“Bringing Transcelestial’s wireless laser solution to new markets with Cyber On-Air means that everything required for reliable operations can keep to pace with how our world needs to move and data infrastructure can be upgraded without any downtime,” said Rohit Jha, CEO and Co-Founder of Transcelestial.
Hong Kong’s reliance on fiber optic cables and high-speed microwave networks is growing at an exponential rate, spurred on mainly through increasing deployment of citywide 5G, higher streaming demand during COVID pandemic and Industry 4.0 transformations across major and minor enterprises.
Given the high cost of deploying a single fiber core into any building owing to labour, ducting and building fees mainly, many operators and providers are looking for wireless high-speed alternatives.
Certain microwave technologies in the E-band spectrum do provide up to 10Gbps at very short (< 1 km) distances reliably but during Hong Kong’s typhoon season, areas with major spectrum interference and at longer than 1km distances, the performance is massively sub par.
Transcelestial’s technology does not use fiber cables and relies on wireless lasers instead, which makes it possible to beam high-speed data by simply placing CENTAURI devices between buildings, poles, or building to pole to connect with a laser beam.
Cyber On-Air’s specialisation in wireless communication solutions and access to organisations – such as fixed and mobile network operators, government, education, hospitality, retail, transportation and small to medium enterprises – in Hong Kong will mean Transcelestial’s solution will be sold, deployed and supported by a local specialised partner.
“Always-on connectivity has become more important than ever and solutions like Transcelestial’s offers a very strong value proposition for Cyber On-Air’s customers. We were impressed by the performance of their wireless laser technology, which also catered to environmental conditions specific to Hong Kong’s market, like monsoon seasons,” said Tony So, General Manager at Cyber On-Air.
END OF ANNOUNCEMENT –
Transcelestial has mass-produced a solution for superfast global Internet distribution that leverages its proprietary Wireless Laser Communication Technology to create a wireless distribution network between buildings, traditional cell towers, street-level poles and other physical infrastructure – with a much lower total cost of operation than fiber for Mobile Network Operators, Internet Service Providers and enterprises.
In the longer-term, Transcelestial aims to develop a constellation of small satellites positioned in Low Earth Orbit, allowing their laser network to not only beam across cities but upwards to connect continents across the world too.
Transcelestial has won numerous industry and global awards such as SPIFFY San Andreas Award for Most Disruptive Technology by Telecom Council, Forbes 30 Under 30 to our CTO Dr. Mohammad Danesh, Edge 35 Under 35 to our CEO Rohit Jha, The Most Ambitious Start-Up in Photonics Award by The Optical Society (OSA), etc.
Founded in Dec 2016, the Transcelestial team is located in Singapore and is backed by major investors such as Wavemaker Partners, EDBI, Airbus Ventures, Kickstart Ventures, Cap Vista, SEEDS Capital (Enterprise SG), Entrepreneur First, Partech Ventures, 500 Startups, AirTree Ventures, Tekton Ventures, SGInnovate, SparkLabs Global Ventures, Michael Seibel (CEO of Y-Combinator, Founder of Twitch.tv), Charles Songhurst (Microsoft’s former Head of Corporate Strategy) and others.
