On Thursday, November 14th, Stockhead published an article reporting on new industry research that has confirmed the importance of Elsight’s multi-network technology in drone production. The article reports on a study performed by Nokia Bell Labs in Denmark that determined that drone communications systems that rely on a minimum of two cellular networks are significantly more reliable than those relying on one.
Nir Gabay, Elsight’s CEO, was quoted in the article, saying that “studies such as the one by Nokia Bell Labs in Denmark have provided invaluable validation of the claims that we have been making for some time — that using a minimum of two IP links/cellular networks greatly improves reliability.”
Gabay also highlighted that the study downplayed the impact of the pending rollout of 5G networks on drone technology, due to the fact that 5G antennas point down, not up.
“When all of this information is crystallised together, the conclusion is undeniable – Halo is coming to market at the exact right time, and is a necessity for the operation of long-range drone flights beyond the visual line of sight.”
