A Spanish company, Sateliot, is sending its 5G IoT satellite to space. The satellite will be carried by SpaceX’s Falcon 9 from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. The satellite launch will be streamed live on Sateliot’s YouTube channel.

The first satellite launch is part of the company’s plan to provide ubiquitous connectivity. Sateliot plans to have 64 satellites in orbit next year and 256 satellites in 2025. The satellites will allow text message conversations in remote areas.

Sateliot’s CEO Jaume Sanpera called the company “the cell tower in space for the mobile operators.” The satellites are nano satellites that can provide coverage everywhere in near-real-time. The Groundbreaker, Sateliot’s 5G standard LEO satellite, will democratize access to IoT.

The satellite launch will feature a special event with company managers and exclusive interviews. The Groundbreaker has a multicolor, Gaudi-style dragon as its mission insignia. Sateliot is one of many companies using satellites in low Earth orbit to provide connectivity.

Apple, T-Mobile, Qualcomm, and Verizon are also working on satellite connectivity solutions. Sateliot‘s initial focus is on connecting companies in logistics and maritime shipping. The company has signed three deals worth about $1.1 billion to enable such services.
