The company says its satellite is the first-ever LEO satellite to support the 5G standard.
Dubbed the “Groundbreaker”, the nano-satellite was launched on the 15th of April by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket at the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.
Barcelona-based Sateliot says this satellite is the first of a planned 250 LEO satellite constellation, which it says will work as “cell towers from space”.
The satellite has an onboard module that allows direct NB-IoT connection for any 5G device upgraded Rel 17 NTN.
Sateliot will now begin testing the satellite in preparation for its operative phase.
