Clarus Networks has produced the new guide to coincide with the rapidly growing commercial availability of the OneWeb network. As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes increasingly important, the firm expects that sectors such as construction and engineering can improve their operations with low earth orbit technology.
The OneWeb constellation now comprises 648 operational satellites, making it the second largest fleet currently in orbit. Satellites operate in conjunction with ground-based gateway stations, and are designed to provide high-speed, low-latency internet connectivity to any location in the world.
While the comparable SpaceX Starlink service is aimed at the domestic market, OneWeb has indicated that its network is developed primarily for use by businesses, government, defense, and communities. The recent guide from Clarus Networks reflects this goal, discussing how satellite-based connectivity can now be deployed in a construction setting.
As an example, the firm states that the OneWeb service offers the ability for construction projects to create a central, interconnected network that can handle functions such as building information modeling, remotely operated equipment, and security devices such as drones or employee PPE.
About The Clarus Networks Group/OneWeb
With headquarters in London and offices throughout the US, OneWeb’s goal is to provide affordable, 5G-level connectivity to all parts of the globe. The Clarus Networks Group has been providing state-of-the-art telecommunications solutions to construction, civil engineering, energy, utilities, and healthcare sectors since 2014. The firm’s partnership with OneWeb has led to the formation of Clarus Low Earth Orbit (CLEO), allowing it to offer the technology to both new and existing clients.
A company representative stated: “As a leading OneWeb distribution partner, we deliver high-speed, low latency connectivity for our clients, whether it’s on land, at sea, or in the air. Good connectivity is vital to construction site operations, including employee communication, security, and, of course, health and safety.”
