The Growing Importance of LEO Satellites in Communication

The low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite market is experiencing an exciting new era with the introduction of miniaturized equipment. These LEO satellites offer lower latency, higher efficiency communication services, and reduced installation and production costs. As a result, they have become the preferred choice for a wide range of applications.

LEO satellites address challenges such as poor reception in geographically constrained areas where traditional base stations are difficult to establish. They enable individuals to access satellite network signals in mountainous regions, at sea, in remote areas, and even on aircraft. This augments the shortcomings of terrestrial networks and provides connectivity anytime, anywhere.

The demand for LEO satellite communication is steadily rising after the global COVID-19 pandemic, as countries reopen and the need for reliable communication grows. LEO satellites have also played a crucial role in meeting communication needs during the Russia-Ukraine conflict, gaining global attention.

Operators like Starlink and OneWeb are actively promoting commercial-related services in the LEO satellite communication industry. The number of LEO satellites is projected to grow from 7,500 in 2023 to 17,350 by 2030, according to research conducted by MIC.

Within the LEO satellite supply chain, Phihong Technology has excelled in power supply technology for terminal receiving devices. Their products provide necessary power to data modems, routers, and satellite equipment while facilitating data transmission between them. Phihong has established stable supply relationships with leading players in the LEO satellite communication industry and ensures their products meet international safety certifications.

Phihong anticipates that its secure and efficient power supply technology will drive the development and evolution of the global LEO satellite market. By working in tandem with global LEO satellite manufacturers, they aim to realize the vision of efficient, low-latency communication while meeting the needs of users worldwide.
