Traditional Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) and Mid-Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites provide internet access to many island nations around the world that aren’t connected to the global network infrastructure via submarine cables. Several Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellations have been announced and are already starting to offer broadband network services around the world.

How will these new LEO satellite networks work with or compete against submarine networks? Watch as Brian Lavallée from Ciena and Alan Mauldin from TeleGeography for a discussion on this topic covering:

  • Some of the common myths associated with satellite networks, as it pertains to submarine networks
  • The difference between LEO, GEO, and MEO satellites from a network performance perspective
  • How new LEO satellite networks compete with or work with satellite networks of today and tomorrow
