Satellite M2M and IoT Services

Narrowband Satellite Links for Communications Between Machines

BusinessCom® satellite Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) services provide reliable global connectivity for a wide range of industries and applications, across multiple frequency bands and satellite networks.

Global Connectivity

Companies, personal appliances, private and public transportation vehicles, smart homes and a wide array of other “things” are all expected to be connected. We anticipate up to about 75 billion devices that will require connectivity by 2020, and this will profoundly change the way we interact with each other.

Satellite provides a viable IoT and M2M connectivity option. Satellite services can be used to provide communications for terestrial transport: rail, cargo, trucks and other vehicles. Emerging self-driving systems will extensively rely on fault-tolerant M2M for daily operations. Aeronautical and maritime connectivity, including autonomous cargo ships and tankers, require SLA-demanding M2M/IoT connectivity services for tracking, security, condition monitoring and IT M&C purposes. Oil and gas, utility, forestry, mining companies and natural resource authorities require M2M and IoT services for asset, people and tank level tracking, on-site staff communications or SCADA telemetry and monitoring backhauls.

A considerable proportion of remote and rural areas still lie outside of terrestrial service coverage, including that of the mobile and microwave networks. BusinessCom geosynchronous Earth orbit (GEO) and non-geosynchronous (NGSO) satellite IoT and M2M solutions augment terrestrial services with high efficiency and SLA standards.
