Inmarsat and SkyWave Mobile Communications announced the commercial launch IsatData Pro, the new service at low data rates, management and communication with remote assets around the world. SkyWave provides a range of satellite terminals, modems, and software tools, and maintains a number of partners around the world are now integrating in their own IsatData Pro.
Adopters include transportation, oil and gas, utilities, SCADA, maritime, defense and security, commercial fishing and heavy equipment.
Pro inserted data is said to offer a significant increase in payload capacity compared to other satellite services in the M2M market, delivering up to 10,000 bytes to the device and up to 6400 bytes of device. Other global M2M satellite service currently available offer data speeds between 270 and 340 bytes.
Delivering up to 37 times more data, IsatData Pro to meet the growing demand for more complete information on M2M applications and companies to share more information on the various functions, via e-mail, electronic forms and information flow work. Applications include vehicle telemetry data, text messaging, the use of teleworkers, keep permanent records of the drivers, and remote management and control of the use of the property.
For mission critical applications, IsatData Pro can deliver a message of 100 bytes in 15 seconds or 1000 bytes in a message 45 seconds – suitable for sending information to pilots operating in hazardous areas, or for use sensors near effective management of remote devices.
“M2M market continues its rapid international growth, but is currently under-served by facilities do not meet the requirements of data growth,” said Drew Brandy Inmarsat Land Services Director. “With the support of a significant increase in the number IsatData entire M2M Pro offers a better business visibility, allows risks to be managed more efficiently, and expanding efficiency. Furthermore, it does so with the support of the most reliable satellite network Global Mobile, the Inmarsat-4s, which is the expected duration in 2020. ”
“Data Manager Pro is a real game changer for our customers for Inmarsat and for us,” said Sean Faulkner, vice president for data communications onboard SkyWave Mobile Pro. “Previously limited to only a few bytes of information can transport companies are now range from monitoring and surveillance for security purposes, to use the data to provide enhanced logistics services. Utilities can send more data, more reliably, from multiple sensors. SCADA applications can range from alarm monitoring to really drive performance and value of the equipment. It allows organizations to maintain contact with remote assets and employees, where as before it was technically impossible or prohibited by costs. ”
SkyWave IDP 600 series of all weather data terminals include integrated GPS, and digital and analog ports for connection of sensors to transmit data as fuel level, engine temperature and speed.
Serial interfaces provide access to detailed diagnostic information and operational resources needed to increase the visibility of the devices used and how to improve business productivity. GUI-based programming tools to help solution providers to modify the operation of terminal equipment to provide their own unique solutions.
