Deploying satellite technology with SCADA and M2M services

To effectively protect, manage, and leverage infrastructure investments, companies are using M2M and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) technology to keep complex systems running at peak efficiency. While cellular-based transmission may work in high population areas, it can be unpredictable due to congestion and urban canyons. It may even be non-existent in remote locations.  According to the International Telecommunication Union, 90% of the world is covered by a mobile cellular network, but what happens when you are working in that other 10%?
