Petaluma Satellite Gateway and Network Operations Center
Our Petaluma gateway is the home of X2nSat's headquarters and our original Satellite Gateway. It is located in the scenic and sunny Telecom valley of Petaluma, California at the base of the hills leading to California's famous wine countries: Napa and Sonoma. There is plenty of open sky uninterrupted by mountains or hills and the weather is mild and sunshiny year-round, making it an excellent place to distance antennas and lock onto satellites from Earth.
It is our first main gateway, the second being located in Las Cruces, NM.

Our Petaluma Gateway has clear visibility to the satellite location arc for both geolocated and low earth orbit (LEO) satellites and had the space and infrastructure needed to develop new satellite networks so we can provide customizable solutions for our customers.Learn More
Coverage of Earth
X2nSat operates on both C-band and Ku-band and can reach over two-thirds of the Earth’s surface from our Petaluma Gateway. What we can’t reach from California, we can reach in New Mexico.Learn More
Geographic Separation from our Las Cruces Gateway
Geographic redundancy is important to ensure high availability of business critical systems across multiple locations.
Businesses can mitigate downtime by replicating applications and data across ‘geo-diverse’ locations. Ideally, gateways are geographically separated (California and New Mexico, for example), so that if one experiences a catastrophic event and cannot be restored, the other can quickly and seamlessly take over the primary role. All traffic is automatically rerouted to the secondary site with minimal service downtime for users.Learn More
Our Petaluma Satellite Gateway is secure and well-monitored. Physical access to the teleport is controlled by automatic gates and card readers. There is also 24/7/365 video surveillance. Output from each camera appears on one of the monitoring screens in the network operations center for constant monitoring.Learn More
There are approximately thirty staff members at the Petaluma facility. This includes a mix of engineers, electricians, technical support specialists, and other administrative personnel. It is also our corporate headquarters, where departments including Accounting, Sales, Marketing, and Client Operations are located.
In addition to its topography and environmental advantages, Petaluma was chosen based on its proximity to Sonoma State University, University of California Berkeley, San Francisco State University, and Stanford University. Northern California is home to some of the best universities in the country for computer science, engineering, and telecommunications, which feed well into the X2nSat’s workforce and allow us to offer jobs and internships to local residents.Learn More
