Satellite-based narrow-band IoT (NB-IoT) solution organisation Skylo, on Tuesday, mentioned that it has joined hands with Inmarsat to use its satellite capacity backbone to deliver IoT solutions for machines and sensors.
The solution will be delivered in India via the state-run telco Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), while the further expansion plans will be released later this year, as per an official statement.
Under the partnership, Inmarsat will join its global satellite network with Skylo’s IoT solution that will allow remotely located application consumers with real-time actionable insights, the statement claimed.
“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,” said Rajeev Suri, Inmarsat’s Chief Executive Officer.
“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,” commented Skylo CEO and co-founder Parth Trivedi.
