Space Data and Lemko Successfully Deploy World's First Commercial Satellite LTE Network

ITASCA, Ill., Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Space Data Corporation and Lemko Corporation announce the successful deployment of the world's first satellite-based commercial LTE network. The network was deployed in Atqasuk, Alaska and offers subscribers mobile broadband data speeds of over 70Mbps. LTE over satellite is uniquely enabled by Lemko's patented DiMoWiNe™ (Distributed Mobile Wireless Network) software solution.

Lemko's DiMoWiNe™ is a virtualized core software program co-located at the eNodeB. By virtualizing the core, all switching and routing in the network is moved to the network's edge, resulting in a LTE solution with greater latency tolerances and the ability to deliver mobile broadband over satellite. DiMoWiNe™ greatly reduces the network's signaling traffic and all backhaul is transported as an "over-the-top" IP application. 

Lemko's game changing solution allows for the first time commercial carriers like Space Data to economically deploy LTE using satellite in areas where it was not practical or possible to connect cell towers with fiber.  Most importantly, people in remote regions will now have high-speed access to the Internet.
