Transcelestial spearheads global rollout of lasercomms with new Singapore plant

Transcelestial is spearheading the global rollout of laser communications (lasercomms) via the “Terabit Factory”, its Singapore-based manufacturing facility which has the world’s largest commercial lasercomms production capability.

The Terabit Factory is a 2,000ft² production facility based in Singapore with the capacity to manufacture up to 2,400 CENTAURI devices annually - the largest deployment volume of any lasercomms producer globally.

Transcelestial, a Singapore-based tech company, recognized the need for better connectivity in a world that is increasingly reliant on communication technologies. As the demand for faster and more reliable connectivity grows, existing communication technologies, such as fiber optics or radio frequency, are challenged. Transcelestial has developed a solution to address this issue - lasercomms technology.

To meet the rising demand for this technology globally, Transcelestial set up the Terabit Factory. Through this factory, they manufacture CENTAURI devices, which are installed in over 10 markets around the world, including Singapore, the United States, Indonesia, India, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Mongolia. Transcelestial's partner network is active in Southeast Asia and select countries in the Middle East, Oceania, and India.

CENTAURI devices provide consistent, high-speed wireless connectivity even in congested environments or under the most demanding weather conditions. The devices can be deployed quickly with a simple point-to-point connection, which means organizations can now connect the last mile rapidly, flexibly, and cost-effectively, without any right of way.

Transcelestial's lasercomms technology has applications across various industries, including telecom, broadband, education, ports and maritime, government, defense, and more. The technology is transforming the way businesses operate, enabling them to operate more efficiently and effectively.

Overall, Transcelestial's innovative solution is playing a crucial role in bridging the digital divide and advancing connectivity around the world. As the demand for faster and more reliable connectivity continues to grow, Transcelestial is well-positioned to help businesses and individuals stay connected and thrive in an increasingly digital world.

The Terabit Factory employs local engineering talent - including engineers, interns, and new career professionals from local Singapore universities. The facility is expected to drive more local talent to be immersed in advanced manufacturing and have opportunities to learn and contribute to research and development alongside global field experts from Transcelestial’s technical team.

This manufacturing capability is not just a Transcelestial milestone - what we’re talking about here is a strategic hub in Singapore that has the potential to exponentially uplift connectivity for entire populations. An annual lasercomms deployment of this volume can create a potential bandwidth of over 10 Tbps, which translates into the capacity to connect tens of millions of users. We are excited to be in conversations with some of the world’s leading telecom and connectivity partners to roll out the technologies produced right in this facility.

Mark Wong, Head of Manufacturing for Transcelestial

We've designed - and future-proofed - a best-in-class manufacturing facility that can rapidly scale up. Creating it felt like something in a sci-fi movie, and yet, I get to step into and see our products being built every day. I’m very proud of the operational excellence we’ve achieved, and the continuous improvements being made only make the Terabit Factory second to none.
