Skylo and Inmarsat yesterday announced the later would provide satellite backbone capacity to deliver Skylo’s IoT solution for connecting machines and sensors. The agreement between two companies pairs Inmarsat’s global satellite network with Skylo’s easy-to-use IoT solution. Skylo’s IoT solution provides users with real-time, actionable insights, and help in improving efficiencies, increase profits, improve sustainability, and save lives.
The IoT solution is already available in India through a partnership with state-owned BSNL, an in-country partner of Skylo. The company will announced expansion plans later this year.
“The most effective IoT solutions require a truly resilient and flexible network that can scale as demand grows. Inmarsat’s industry-leading L-band network provides a unique capability for enabling the billions of connected IoT devices in India and across the world that are being deployed at an extraordinary speed. We are delighted to work with Skylo to provide the IoT fabric that matches their ambition.”
Rajeev Suri, Inmarsat Chief Executive Officer
Skylo said that its solutions help customers receive continous, real-time data transmission through the Skylo Hub that reads sensors and transmits data to the Skylo Satellite Network. Satellite IoT connectivity has enabled real-time data transmission with greater reliability and cost effectiveness.
“Skylo makes simple, reliable IoT connectivity available to everyone at disruptively affordable rates,” commented Skylo CEO and co-founder Parth Trivedi. “Even more attractive than a sharp increase in adoption due to low barrier-to-entry is deploying critical new business capabilities as machine data becomes readily available and accessible.
Our global IoT connectivity fabric makes way for thousands of life-changing applications — from managing vaccine efficacy during delivery, to advancing precision farming, to providing early warnings in the event of natural disasters. We look forward to expanding globally and making our platform available to small and large enterprises, companies deploying new sensors, systems integrators, distributors, Governments and OEMs.”
