o Reston-based Ligado Networks Raises Over $100 Million for 5G Network


Reston, Va. -- Ligado Networks, a Reston-based 5G networking company formerly called LightSquared, announced on Friday that it has raised more than $100 million in investment capital for its network. The names of the investors were not disclosed. The company is building a 5G network aimed at the public safety, commercial transportation, energy and manufacturing sectors. Ligado said it recently received regulatory approval for modifying its spectrum licences to include 5G services. "With this new round of capital, we are better prepared than ever to do exactly what we've said -- get this mid-band spectrum deployed to support the next-generation wireless networks needed to bring America's critical infrastructure and essential services into the 21st century," said CEO Doug Smith.

o Reston-based LookingGlass to Relaunch Cyveillance Name for Services


Reston, Va. -- LookingGlass Cyber Solutions, a Reston-based risk management firm, announced that it will relaunch the Cyveillance brand as its services business. LookingGlass acquired Cyveillance in 2015 and combined it into one brand name. Under the new structure, the LookingGlass name will be used for the product business, and the Cyveillance name will be used for the services unit. James Carnall will lead the new Cyveillance division. “It is remarkable to me that so many of our customers never stopped calling us Cyveillance,” said Gilman Louie, executive chairman of LookingGlass. “We are thrilled to bring this widely recognized and trusted name back to the forefront.”
