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 set up the Terabit Factory to meet the rising demand for lasercomms technology globally, across telecom, broadband, education, ports and maritime, government, defense, and more. Today, CENTAURI devices 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. Regionally, Transcelestial’s partner network is active in Southeast Asia and select countries in the Middle East, Oceania, and India.
Existing communication technologies, such as fiber optics or radio frequency, are challenged by the world’s ever-growing demand for better connectivity. Wireless solutions like lasercomms, by way of CENTAURI devices, provide consistent, high-speed wireless connectivity even in congested environments or under the most demanding weather conditions. CENTAURI devices can be deployed quickly with a simple point-to-point connection, meaning organisations can now connect the last mile rapidly, flexibly, and cost-effectively, without any right of way.
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.
