How do World Mobile Aerostats work?

Updated: Oct 10, 2023

World Mobile is a next-generation mobile network that is revolutionizing the way we connect to the world. Thanks to its dynamic design, the World Mobile network is capable of delivering connectivity to areas where traditional mobile operators are unable to reach. This is achieved by using innovative technologies and adaptable approaches that are tailored to the unique challenges of each region.

One of the key technologies that makes World Mobile's network so dynamic is the use of aerostats. These are unpowered balloons that are tethered to the ground with a high-speed fiber connection, providing widespread coverage at a fraction of the cost of traditional cell towers. This not only opens up new areas for connectivity, but also allows for innovative connectivity options and the propagation of World Mobile's backhaul to AirNode operators.

The aerostats used by World Mobile are equipped with the latest technology to provide connectivity and other features. This includes:

  • LTE module for 4G cellular connectivity

  • LTE-U module for backhaul over unlicensed spectrum

  • Sigfox and LoRaWAN modules for IoT connectivity

  • AIS marine tracking module

  • A fiber tether that links the balloon to the core of the World Mobile network

In addition to providing connectivity, World Mobile's aerostats also act as a hub for the delivery of connectivity over a wide area. They can act as a giant AirNode, offering last-mile connectivity to customers and connecting AirNodes to the World Mobile network, enabling them to earn from connecting others even in areas without fixed broadband coverage. Furthermore, by including IoT modules on the aerostats, they can function as IoT hubs in the sky, connecting a mesh of IoT devices over a large radius. This opens up exciting new opportunities for projects like smart agriculture, smart cities, and environment monitoring.

The inclusion of an AIS marine tracking module on World Mobile aerostats also makes communication of vessel locations much cheaper by allowing vessels in the range of the aerostat to transmit transponder information via the balloon instead of a satellite.

In conclusion, World Mobile's use of aerostats is a key aspect of its dynamic approach to delivering connectivity to previously unconnected areas. By adapting its technology and approach to the unique challenges of each region, World Mobile is providing a cost-effective and innovative solution for bringing connectivity to remote areas around the world.
