Commercial drones flying beyond visual line of sight require a ubiquitous and dependable connectivity. Command-and-control links must be highly reliable (99.999%) to prevent crashes. Solutions based on satellite communication permit global coverage but are expensive to operate. 4G-LTE is a viable solution but provides only “best effort” latency / bitrate. 5G will take an unknown number of years for a widespread deployment.
Voltela pushes the standard of connectivity to commercial drones and builds the most reliable communication links for more safety above our heads. This allows us to provide failover UTM connectivity using the current mobile network. Our worldwide connectivity service allows drone service providers to reliably control their autonomous long-range drones, and benefit from fewer mission abortions and reduced costs compared to satellite links.
Voltela’s innovative technology (patent pending) leverages the prioritized voice channel for reliable and low-latency drone communication. The solution uses any mobile network generation to deliver superior command-and-control connectivity. The solution can establish parallel links to complementary network providers and, upon network availability, provide high-bandwidth data channels for video and sensor data.
