Transcelestial’s Wireless Laser Communication Technology Will Expand to 10 New APAC Markets with Exclusive Networks
November 24, 2021 News


Transcelestial, a company building the technology for superfast global Internet distribution, will accelerate the deployment of its laser network into Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Macau, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam with digital infrastructure distributor, Exclusive Networks.

“Higher Internet demand of up to 70% in some countries, especially during COVID-19, has brought global telecom infrastructure closer to a tipping point and it is no longer sustainable to rely on physical cables for online connectivity. Bringing our wireless laser communication technology across Asia Pacific with Exclusive Networks marks our first major investment to help bridge the connectivity divide to weeks as opposed to months or years with fibre optic cables,” said Rohit Jha, CEO at and Co-Founder of Transcelestial.

The majority of the world’s population today still does not have access to Internet connectivity, with almost 2 billion people being just within 10km of the nearest fibre. The main deterrent in having ubiquitous internet delivery in cities is that the physical fibre cable network itself, always very costly and slow to implement.

COVID-19 across Asia Pacific has resulted in delays of up to 24 months to roll out fibre cables typically needed in Last Mile Connectivity for 5G, home and office broadband and enterprises.

Transcelestial’s technology relies on lasers instead, which makes it possible to beam fibre-grade internet without the need for any wires between buildings, cell towers or street-level poles. This can be implemented in a fraction of the time and cost of physical fibre cables.

As part of the partnership, Exclusive Networks will sell Transcelestial’s solutions in all 10 markets to their current customer base of Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Enterprises.

“We look forward to meeting the market with Transcelestial, leveraging our wide network in Asia Pacific. Exclusive Networks is putting its trust and weight into this partnership to address what COVID-19 has made most urgent in the telecom industry—an accelerated rollout of transformational network upgrades. We see a distinct and timely opportunity here for first-movers to lead the charge and define the future of connectivity”, said Brad Gray, Senior Vice President, APAC at Exclusive Networks.

Transcelestial’s expansion plan will be spearheaded by Charles Han, Transcelestial’s newly appointed Global Channel Strategy and Program Lead, who previously held senior leadership roles at VMware, Cisco, Citrix and Sunny Tham, Transcelestial’s Global Channel Sales Lead. He has 20+ years senior leadership experience in the Asia Pacific point-to-point Wireless Connectivity market.

“Visionary Mobile Network Operators and Internet Service Providers recognise that the rise in demand for 5G, broadband and general Internet usage will push our technology infrastructure to resolve challenges in Internet Distribution, with solutions ranging from Last Mile connectivity to Low Earth Orbit. The opportunity for Transcelestial’s technology to revolutionise both arenas is not far off – this is simply the first leap forward towards that mission,” said Han.
