Inmarsat, SkyWave launch new M2M asset tracker

Inmarsat (London, England), a provider of satellite communications services, and SkyWave Mobile Communications (Ontario, Canada), a provider of communication services for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, on Thursday announced the launch of a new low data rate service for managing and communicating with remote assets around the world.

According to Inmarsat, IsatData Pro can deliver up to 10,000 bytes to the device and up to 6,400 bytes from the device. Other global M2M satellite services currently available offer data connectivity at between 270 and 340 bytes, according to the company.

By delivering up to 37 times more data, IsatData Pro aims to allow businesses to share more data across multiple operations, via emails, electronic forms and workflow information, says Inmarsat. Applications include vehicle telemetry information, text-messaging remote workers, maintaining up-to-date driver logs, and the remote management and control of fixed assets.

For mission critical applications, IsatData Pro can transmit a 100 byte message in less than 15 seconds, or a 1,000 byte message in 45 seconds - ideal for sending information to drivers operating in high-risk areas, or for the effective use of sensors to closely manage remote equipment, according to Inmarsat.

According to Inmarsat, a number of partners are now integrating IsatData Pro into their applications that support the transportation, oil & gas, utilities, SCADA, maritime, defense & security, commercial fishing and heavy equipment sectors.
